Welcome to TACN FirstNet!

We are Tennessee’s strategy for connecting with the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network—called FirstNet. We are working to provide an interoperable, state-wide public safety data network linking public safety agencies across the state.
Agencies benefiting from this program will likely include:
  • Law Enforcement
  • Fire Services
  • Emergency Management
  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Health Services
  • Public Works
But most of all, once this network is in place and is working efficiently, the residents of the Great State of Tennessee will benefit from it! Our mission is to provide a statewide strategic planning framework for an innovative, inclusive, scalable, sustainable, and well-managed infrastructure that promotes FirstNet requirements and public safety for the residents and visitors of the State of Tennessee.

About TACN FirstNet

TACN FirstNet is a multi-year program designed to provide a framework for Tennessee First Responders to work with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) in the design efforts for the nation’s first Public Safety Broadband Network. The goal of this program is to facilitate collaboration between Tennessee’s public safety community and FirstNet in defining the operational requirements, governance, and sustainability model for Tennessee’s portion of the National Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN).
