Macarthur region boosted with PSN site

The Public Safety Network (PSN) in the Macarthur Region of New South Wales has been expanded with the completion of a site at Macquarie Fields. NSW Telco Authority Managing Director Kylie De Courteney said that next to Australia’s triple zero emergency hotline, the PSN was the most critical communications network in NSW.

The PSN is a radio network used by frontline emergency services, government agencies and essential services to communicate via radio handsets and other devices during emergencies. De Courteney said the NSW Government was investing $1.4 billion to expand the PSN to better protect communities.
