Get a network that gives you peace of mind

Every day, police answer 145,000 calls — where anything can happen. If you lose communication with your team on one of those calls, every second of silence seems like an hour. Data Priority for First Responders helps you communicate without losing a second, despite heavy network traffic that could slow or stop regular data messages. And with the UScellular network behind you, you can reach your team in the places their responses take them. So your team knows you’ve got them covered around the clock and around your town.

Connect no matter what you’re facing

Every year, you and over one million firefighters in the United States respond to the aftermath of hundreds of tornadoes, a handful of floods, and countless other emergencies. During events like these, heavy network traffic and infrastructure damage can make it harder to stay connected. With Data Priority for First Responders, your mission-critical data goes first, ahead of other network traffic. And our network can keep you connected in cases and places other carriers may not. So you and your team can weather any storm.
