The snow struggle is real without FirstNet

Whether its lake effect snow or a blizzard, winter storms provide a variety of challenges for the general public and first responders alike in Minnesota. From an increase in crashes, to roof collapses, to search and rescue operations, emergency personnel are often stretched thin. Add communication and situational awareness struggles into the mix and first responders might find themselves flying blind. FirstNet could help alleviate those challenges by providing responders with the visual and communication technology needed to transmit life-saving data. Watch how it could have helped New York’s Niagara County Sheriff’s Office during a 2014 storm.

 

MNFOG 2.0 Approved by SECB

Minnesota’s Field Operations Guide, version 2.0, was approved at the November SECB meeting and is finally available! This is the first revision of the MNFOG since April 2014. At this moment, version 2.0 is only available in PDF version. We are working with the printer and will provide a printing update soon. We plan to print the MNFOG in both 8½” x 11” and pocket sized formats. 

The Interoperability pages of the ECN website are still being updated.  For now, you will find the MNFOG on the Related Links page.
