Calling All Developers – Submit your Disaster Response Apps to FirstNet

The Department of Commerce partnered with AT&T to develop FirstNet – a broadband network exclusively for first responders – and now wants to build a dedicated app store for public safety-related products.


FirstNet is encouraging developers to submit smartphone and tablet applications for approval. The developer program will feed the FirstNet app store, providing public safety with a one-stop shop for reliable, highly secure solutions optimized for the FirstNet network.


Developers will have access to  a specialized portal with resources to help them  build, test, deploy and maintain public safety applications. The portal also contains guidelines to follow when developing for public safety.
