FORT POLK, Louisiana - The damage and debris resulting earlier this summer as Hurricane Laura passed over Fort Polk, Louisiana, at a strength of Category 2 illustrates the Army’s need for secure communications by emergency responders. Emergency response communications at 72 Army locations across the nation and Puerto Rico are being enhanced with use of the FirstNet platform following the September contract award by the Mission and Installation Contracting Command-Fort Sam Houston. The secure platform will allow Army emergency responders, operators and planners a more reliable network for responding to emergencies and natural disasters.
