Description

Do you have an app idea for assisting first responders in the field? Are you interested in building apps to help firefighters, police and EMS?
Then please join us for this special Public Safety Hackathon. With the availability of 4G LTE, law enforcement, fire, and EMS personnel are finally on a level playing field. With FirstNet – the only communications tool dedicated to providing prioritized connectivity to those who risk everything – they’ll have reliable communication services and access to highly secure data connections. Now they need mobile apps to help them respond to emergencies, fight crime, and make our communities safer.
This is an important market with many opportunities for developers. By hacking for public safety mobile apps, developers can mature their ideas, get involved in an exciting community, and create something to further the greater social good.
