The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 created the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) as an independent authority within the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA), to provide emergency responders with the first high-speed, nationwide network dedicated to public safety. FirstNet will link law enforcement, emergency management, fire, public works, and emergency management services through text, video, and data when responding to emergencies.
