For decades, voice communications have been considered as the ‘critical communications’ required for effective operations in Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW). With the increasing demands for data, perceptions and expectations towards critical communications are changing.

FRNSW has embarked on an extensive Connected Firefighter program of works—to uplift and enhance critical communications across the organisation to provide connectivity to firefighters on the frontline anywhere, anytime. This presentation will outline the program of works, the operational benefits, and the future landscape.
