ERinfoPro Is FirstNet® Certified – Why That Is Crucial For First Responders
What FirstNet® certification means for first responders
First responders and public safety agencies face issues daily when trying to identify unconscious and non-communicative victims. The inability to quickly identify critically ill persons in an emergency can lead to catastrophic consequences. Finally, there is an answer that will solve this issue and help save lives.
It’s called ERinfoPro and it is the only FirstNet CertifiedTM app that allows first responders to identify non-communicative patients. We will explain how ERinfoPro works and why its FirstNet® certification is so valuable.

What Does FirstNet® Certified Mean?
FirstNet® is American’s public safety communication platform that equips first responders to save lives and protect victims across the United States. It was built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet). It contains the first-ever App Catalog designed specifically for first responders. It provides 24/7 access to voice, data, and video services in the field.
The FirstNet® Certified designation means ERinfoPro has been vetted by FirstNet® and found to be a trusted solution for public safety. It has undergone rigorous testing to satisfy all app requirements to be added to the FirstNet® App Catalog.
To qualify for this designation, an app must pass stringent tests for security, relevancy, data privacy, and availability. Every app is studied by the App Review board, which includes the FirstNet® Authority. The ERinfoPro app has met and passed these requirements. It has also met advanced requirements for mobility, scalability, and resiliency.
ERinfoPro has the additional benefit of the enhanced security measures provided by the FirstNet® network core, which is the only physically separate network core that is dedicated to public safety in this country.
