Dear Fire Chiefs,

Many years ago, we started hearing rumblings about a dedicated public safety network, built just for us, to improve our connectivity. We didn’t know then how big it could be – but it’s here now, ready to serve fire departments across the country.

That’s why, in addition to today’s regular lineup of leadership-focused content, we are sharing our latest digital edition, Fire Service Connectivity in Action, sponsored by FirstNet. This special edition offers insights into what fire chiefs need to know about adopting FirstNet. It covers budget implications, training, mutual aid and other essential information to help agencies determine when is the right time to make the switch. Download the full edition here.
