Washington OneNet, FirstNet in Oregon, and the Idaho First Responder Net recently conducted a Tri-State Tribal Summit. The Summit was held in conjunction with the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI) Winter Conference in Lincoln City, Oregon. The Winter Conference and our summit were hosted by the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon.
Washington, Oregon, and Idaho jointly sponsored the event which consisted of vendor space, a hosted lunch for attendees, an opportunity to speak with the general assembly, and a 2-hour work session. Additionally, Washington OneNet is working on a tribal specific video. Our film crew had the opportunity to conduct onsite interviews with conference attendees for the video.
The culmination of our efforts is ATNI Resolution 15-02, supporting the development of a First Responder Network and of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho’s efforts to engage tribes in the design process for FirstNet.
