Orion Labs, provider of the Orion voice-enabled platform for real-time workforce communication and collaboration, recently announced that its Orion Push to Talk iOS 5.2.8 mobile application is now FirstNet Certified and included in the App Catalog for FirstNet. First responders can use Orion’s voice communication platform with FirstNet’s priority access and preemption services, enabling teams to respond to emergencies faster and more efficiently.

FirstNet is the nationwide communications platform dedicated to America’s first responders and public safety community.

It offers technology, features and functionality designed to properly handle the rigorous, specific and niche demands of first responders.

“We’re pleased that Orion Labs’ push-to-talk application is now FirstNet Certified,” said Bob Sloan, COO, AT&T-FirstNet. “Having options is important when it comes to first responders’ communications tools.  As a FirstNet Certified™ application, public safety can be confident that Orion Labs’ push-to-talk app is a trusted solution that meets FirstNet requirements for relevancy, security, data privacy, mobility, resiliency, and scalability.”

“Orion Labs was born from our experiences in the fire and emergency medical services. We’re incredibly excited to bring Orion’s advanced communication platform to support first responders on FirstNet,” said Jesse Robbins, Founder and CEO, Orion Labs. “Orion is honored to meet the high requirements for FirstNet Certified™ apps and hopes to be one part in helping public safety teams in their mission to   save lives and better protect their communities.”
