Delivering on our Commitment.

Enabling the live saving technology first responders need most with the power of 5G.  

5G will enable life saving capabilities that will empower the first responders who protect our communities. Verizon and ResponderXLabs are committed to delivering those vital capabilities as soon as possible. 5G First Responder Lab will help deliver that commitment by working alongside boots-on-the-ground to identify the most pressing needs, and the global entrepreneurial community to source the leading solutions.

In 2019, 5G First Responder Lab committed to enabling 15 emerging technologies with the power of 5G, and then delivering those solutions to public safety agencies throughout the country. No whitepapers, no hackathons. Real solutions, real deployments.
