To support the development of stakeholder coverage requirements, the WiPSB project team requested three years of CAD incident data to provide an objective justification for the needs identified. This incident data was processed to
produce a heatmap and overlayed on FirstNet’s baseline coverage objectives.
Coverage Review Meetings
The interactive Coverage Review Meetings engaged over 200 first responders from counties, cities, tribes, and State agencies to provide first-hand information about the needs
within their jurisdictions. County by county, the WiPSB project team identified “Critical Service Areas” (coverage requirements, areas of high-priority) and “Extended Service Areas” (existing coverage deficiencies)
in order to develop a statewide map for FirstNet’s consideration when developing Wisconsin’s State Plan. The interactive map can be found below. Meetings began with individual counties in August 2016 and were completed in November
2016. If you have any questions regarding your coverage review results, please feel free to contact the WiPSB project team to discuss.
