Critical Communications Enhancement Program
The Critical Communications Enhancement Program (CCEP) is building one of the largest public safety radio networks of its kind in the world.
The NSW Government is investing $1.4 billion to expand and enhance the Public Safety Network (PSN). This Critical Communications Enhancement Program (CCEP) will:
- provide a single network for emergency services to communicate with each other
- coordinate responses to critical incidents and disasters.

A single shared network is important
Risks of extreme weather events such as bushfires and floods are increasing. Reliable and resilient critical communications are vital to protecting communities.
A single shared network will:
- increase the sharing of information during emergencies such as floods and fires
- improve service levels for customers
- improve responses to communities affected by disasters and critical incidents
- allow for connection to networks in other states
- allow for new communication technologies.
