FirstNet Continues to Support IAFF Members During COVID-19 Pandemic

March 29 • 2020

The IAFF and FirstNet Built with AT&T, in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority, are committed to educating fire fighters and paramedics about the benefits of FirstNet and the impact it can have on public safety communications during these critical times.

As IAFF members continue to respond to the COVID-19 spread nationwide, AT&T has significantly reduced its retail footprint to protect our communities and employees during the COVID-19 response and is adapting processes to continue to support IAFF members as follows:
