New England FirstNet Summit

Please join me and my public safety colleagues at the University of New Hampshire in Durham from May 3 - 4, 2022 for the New England FirstNet Summit.  This special event will bring together public safety officials from across the northeast for two important sessions. 

First, the New Hampshire Department of Safety is collaborating with FirstNet, Built with AT&T, as part of the summit to offer an important health and wellness training session for New England first responders.  The ResponderStrong Mental Health Curriculum, developed by a team of educators, emergency responders and mental health clinicians, provides participants with a foundational knowledge of responder mental health, including topics such as suicide, stress, post-traumatic stress injury, and resiliency.  The goals of this session are to increase knowledge about how to maintain and improve your general mental health, but more importantly, to erode the stigma that leads so many responders to suffer in silence. 

Second, the State of New Hampshire is pleased to host the FirstNet Authority and their Board members for their quarterly meeting, providing an opportunity during the summit for New England first responders to meet staff and Board members to share their current and future public safety communications strategies.

Please join us for one or both days of the New England FirstNet Summit to:

  • Participate in FirstNet technology demonstrations and discussions focused on innovative public safety solutions
  • Network with your peers, industry representatives, and representatives from the First Responder Network Authority
  • Attend a keynote address delivered by Dr. Anna Courie, Director of First Responder Health & Wellness programs at AT&T.  Dr. Courie is a national expert on first responder health and wellness, and will discuss critical guidance, statistics and best practices for all members of the public safety community
  • Participate in training on the ResponderStrong Mental Health Curriculum and Responding to Your Relationships. Through increased awareness and skills generated in this short course, responders will find themselves empowered to better manage the mental and emotional challenges of the job, as well as the unique relationship and communication challenges faced by responders and their families

The training is offered at no cost to you or your agency.  Space is limited, so please register to receive additional information. Feel free to forward this notice to your public safety colleagues.

Register.
