New Leader Chosen for the Public Safety Advisory Committee

By Jessica Denson

Tom Sorley has been chosen by FirstNet as the new Chair of the Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC). The committee will help FirstNet uphold its pledge to the nation’s public safety personnel and the communities they serve.

“This is one of the first efforts that I know of where cross disciplines have all been united—police, fire, public safety, the mayors, the governors, the counties. Everybody has come together and said, ‘We have to have this,’” Sorley said about FirstNet’s efforts to create a unified network. “It has the potential to revolutionize the delivery of public safety services.”

Sorley has served as a PSAC Vice Chair for four years, and is the PSAC representative from the U.S. Conference of Mayors. As the current Deputy Chief Information Officer (CIO) - Public Safety for the City of Houston Information Technology Services (HITS), he understands the needs of first responders when it comes to communications.

As part of his role in Houston, Sorley is responsible for direct oversight of radio communications and IT services for the Houston Emergency Center, the city’s combined dispatch and emergency operations center.
