Episode 68: Getting ahead of the game: Pre-planning for Super Bowl LVII

The Super Bowl — America’s largest sporting event — requires significant pre-planning to ensure the safety of players, staff, and spectators. Coordinating public safety communications for Super Bowl LVII involved more than a dozen different cities and jurisdictions and posed unique challenges, including overlap with another major sporting event the same week. Through the FirstNet Authority’s Network Experience Engagement Program, public safety officials in Arizona received pre-planning assistance for the Super Bowl, helping responders be ready on game day.

These engagements enhance public safety’s FirstNet experience and help public safety agencies operationalize FirstNet, the nation’s communications network dedicated to emergency responders.
