Priority Service for First Responders
Many first responders are experiencing busy signals and dropped calls in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Below is a list of mobile providers that offer priority service for first responders with information to get priority access.
Many of the priority access programs will require registration in the Government Emergency Telecommunications Service (GETS) and the Wireless Priority Service (WPS) programs. Find out more about requesting GETS and WPS.
If you have trouble signing up for priority access, feel free to contact Ed Mills (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance getting connected with the correct representative.
