    By Dave Buchanan, FirstNet Director of State Consultation

    One year ago today, FirstNet held the first initial state consultation meeting in Maryland. While the meeting in Annapolis was not the beginning of FirstNet’s consultation process, it did mark a significant milestone along our Strategic Program Roadmap: to formally launch initial consultation meetings in all states and territories for the nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN).

    FirstNet has met with 43 states and territories and with more than 2,600 public safety representatives and government officials from state, territory, local, federal, and tribal agencies operating in metropolitan and rural locations in their state or territory to discuss in detail their specific requirements for the network.
