Your agency has faced one new challenge after another in response to the pandemic. COVID-19 testing. New engagement and treatment protocols. Contact tracing. And now, the huge task of vaccinating the public. No one challenge is more important than another. And until the threat is gone, you’ll need to continue the processes and resources you’ve implemented.

Few responder agencies and supporting organizations have the resources to do it all. But they still have to get the work done. They need practical and reliable solutions to mount a sustainable response to COVID-19. So, public safety agencies are adopting innovative solutions to mobilize their people and modernize their systems. 

That’s where FirstNet® and the purpose-built FirstNet Verified™ and FirstNet Certified™ apps come in. FirstNet apps are helping agencies test, treat and trace the coronavirus. And in April agency leaders and solution providers will step away from their important work to share their experiences with you in a three-part webinar series. 

Mission Critical Communications will host the webinars, scheduled for April 8, 15 and 22, where executives from Dutchess and Oneida counties in New York, will discuss how:

  • New York is using FirstNet and the RumbleUp App to trace COVID infections;
  • Baystate Medical Center and American Medical Response (AMR) in Massachusetts use FirstNet and e-Bridge to handle the influx of patients;
  • Pulsara and other healthcare apps help agencies conduct testing and distribute vaccines;
  • Connected ambulances are using FirstNet, FirstNet Ready® devices and Corrata to share and safeguard HIPPA-protected data.

You can wrap up the month learning how to take care of yourself and other first responders. FirstNet and APCO International will host a webinar on responder health and wellness April 28. You can register here.
