Story: In our first week in Macon, we were invited to a meeting with the Fire Department. The deputy fire chief and our IT contact told us that only 3 of 19 fire stations had internet access. They also needed to borrow a firefighter's iPhone to get internet access in the field on their ToughBook laptop. Getting internet access would be a crucial step towards digitizing fire department records and communications, as well as improving access to online classes and hazardous waste / fire response resources. By the end of the month, our IT contact reported that all of the fire stations had internet access. This was possible because the ISP was already providing cable TV to all stations. Unfortunately... not all have computers.
