Two Way Direct joins FirstNet Dealer Program
Company selected to help public safety entities take advantage of the nationwide FirstNet platform
CARLSBAD, CA. — Two Way Direct has joined the FirstNet Dealer Program. As a FirstNet dealer, Two Way Direct can equip public safety entities with FirstNet, helping first responders communicate more efficiently and effectively during emergencies. This announcement comes with as many as 14,000 firefighters having battled the largest wildfire in the history of California.
Through this relationship, Two Way Direct can help police officers, firefighters, medical technicians, and other emergency personnel who depend on reliable communication to serve the public interest tap into the benefits of FirstNet. As one of a select number of FirstNet dealers, Two Way Direct is able to activate FirstNet service across a number of FirstNet Ready™ and capable devices[AG1] , making critical communications capabilities more accessible to public safety entities working with Two Way Direct.
