Marietta-based MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service (MAAS) has implemented a technology upgrade with FirstNet – a groundbreaking new communications platform developed just for public safety.

FirstNet is the nationwide communications platform dedicated to America’s public safety. Being built with AT&T, in public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority), it gives communications capabilities a major boost, providing a reliable and highly secure connection.

“Radio communication with local dispatch centers, hospitals and other responding agencies are critically important when responding to emergencies,” said Pete Quinones, president and CEO for MAAS. “This tech upgrade equips MetroAtlanta’s EMS personnel with new capabilities and reliable access to critical communication while in the field, so they can better serve patients across Georgia.”
