SW Sydney to open public safety radio site

The Public Safety Network (PSN) in Sydney’s south west has been expanded with the completion of a new site at Roselands. The new radio site, delivered by NSW Telco Authority, is vital to ongoing community safety.

NSW Telco Authority Managing Director Kylie De Courteney said these sites provide emergency services organisations with a single, integrated network on which to communicate.

“It is technology that saves lives and, by expanding the footprint of this critical infrastructure, we are ensuring frontline responders have a more reliable network to help keep people and places safe,” De Courteney said.

“PSN sites were crucial in protecting communities and supporting the Rural Fire Service, police, fire and rescue, ambulance and the State Emergency Service during the 2019–20 Black Summer bushfires as well as flood events in 2021.

“During an emergency every second counts and the new radio site will make it easier for our local emergency services to communicate when it matters most.”

Next to Australia’s triple zero emergency hotline, the PSN is the most critical communications network in NSW.
