The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) board tomorrow is scheduled to approve updates to its bylaws and charters for its four committees. Board members also plan to approve a resolution honoring Tom Sorley, the former chair of the Public Safety Advisory Committee who died recently (TR Daily, Feb. 5), with the Harlin R. McEwen Award.
The joint meeting of the board and its committees is scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon central time. The meeting is being held in Little Rock, Ark. Meanwhile, Rep. Ryan Costello (R., Pa.) issued a statement saying he was pleased that Chester County is the first county in his state to subscribe to FirstNet. “Chester County has taken an important step forward in ensuring ubiquitous wireless service between emergency services and law enforcement officials, and across state lines during public safety disasters,” he said.
