Press Release

Washington, DC- Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) responded to the announcement that New Jersey will be the sixth state to ‘opt-in’ to FirstNet, the nationwide broadband network for first responders that will be built by AT&T:

“I remember hearing from public safety officials during Superstorm Sandy how dangerous it could be when their radios were not interoperable. That's why I want to congratulate everyone in the private and public sectors who came together to support our first responders.  But we will all be better off when FirstNet is truly nationwide, so I encourage other states to follow New Jersey's lead and quickly opt in to the network.”
