Who Actually Qualifies For FirstNet Service?

As posted above, who actually qualifies for FirstNet service? Certainly full-time police officers and firefighters qualify. But, what about part time and volunteers? What about dispatchers? If a firefighter gets service, can he still get a "family plan"? I assume that the rest of the family doesn't have any great access. Do members of the armed forces qualify? Do you have to be full time, active duty or do the Reserves and Guard qualify? I seem to recall reading that some private sector qualify, like EMS. Do some nurses qualify? Would they have to work at a hospital or could any nurse qualify? What about other government workers? If you are a plow truck drivers, do you qualify?

I checked both https://www.firstnet.gov/ and https://www.firstnet.com/ but I still couldn't tell!

I did find this, but it is still clear as mud for me.

A bit more information here.

With a lot of people I know on family plans, pulling one out for this may adversely affect the remainder of the family on their old plan.

Still looking for more details.

It is interesting that federal agency employees are excluded along with folks in MA. Perhaps Massachusetts is running the whole deal through the commonwealth!
