Public Safety Network
The Public Safety Network (PSN) delivers critical communications services for 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.
The PSN helps save lives. Next to Australia’s triple zero emergency hotline, the PSN is the most important critical communications network in NSW and one of the largest of its type in the world.
