Telecommunications leaders met with city and county officials from across Williamson County last week to discuss progress on the national First Responder Network Authority, or FirstNet.
FirstNet acting CEO Ed Parkinson and Vogue Towers CEO Pat Troxell-Tant led a discussion with local emergency management officials on Monday. The two industry leaders also received a tour of Williamson County’s state-of-the-art emergency management center.
FirstNet is an independent federal authority charged with establishing an interoperable public safety broadband network. The network is operating already in parts of Tennessee, including Williamson County.
Vogue Towers is a wireless infrastructure company based in Tennessee that focuses on the ownership of communication towers and other wireless assets.
