FirstNet App Store

Who is eligible?

Subscribers can include primary user and extended primary users.

Primary users are public safety personnel whose primary mission and job is to provide services to the public in the areas of law enforcement, fire suppression and prevention, emergency medical services (EMS), emergency management and public safety communications (Public Safety Answering Points, or PSAPs, and dispatch).

Extended primary users are other entities that provide public safety services, and include individuals, agencies, organizations, non-profit or for-profit companies who are not primary users, but who may be called upon to support public safety personnel with the mitigation, remediation, overhaul, clean-up, restoration, or other such services that are required during the time of incident or post-incident. Extended primary users may be called on a temporary or on-going basis.

Extended Community 

FirstNet is also available to an extended community that could be called on to help support first responders – from the mitigation, remediation, overhaul, clean up and restoration to the provisioning of other services required – during the time of an emergency or its aftermath. These are also known as extended primary users and can include essential government services, education, transportation and utilities. 

Because FirstNet is a dedicated public safety resource, primary users (first responders) and the extended community are reviewed before service is approved. IP Access can help you through the qualification process.
