Securityhunter, Inc. Approved To Install FirstNet Systems
BALTIMORE: April 2021 -- Securityhunter, Inc., located in Baltimore, Maryland, is now certified with FirstNet. FirstNet is the country’s first nationwide communications platform, dedicated to public safety, to help first responders connect to the critical information they need every day and in every emergency.
FirstNet communications frequency operates at 700MHz, a frequency only allocated to life, safety, and security personnel communicating during a public safety emergency. Becoming certified means Securityhunter can now offer its federal clients a method to communicate, even in the event of a disaster. “Most Americans remember the events of September 11th and the frustration and confusion caused by overloaded cellular networks for several days afterward. FirstNet was developed specifically to help first responders avoid these issues in the future by providing communication ability exclusively for emergency services.” When asked about the significance of the certification, Securityhunter Quality Control Manager, Marcus Wright, stated, “We believe this shows how Securityhunter is committed to protecting the nation by planning for any catastrophic emergency that may arise”.
Ross Nelson, Executive Director added, “We’re always looking for capabilities that will help us enhance public safety and security. I think FirstNet is an important tool for our first responders and I’m proud that Securityhunter is able to participate in the program.” At the present time, there are less than thirty-five companies approved to install FirstNet systems.
