The installation of a new radio site at Goulburn's Mount Gray has expanded the Public Safety Network.
Goulburn MP Wendy Tuckerman said the new radio site, delivered by the NSW Telco Authority, was vital to ongoing community and visitor safety at Mount Gray.
"These sites provide emergency services organisations with a single, integrated network on which to communicate," she said.
"It's technology that saves lives. By expanding the footprint of this critical infrastructure, we are ensuring that frontline responders have a more reliable network to help keep people and places safe.
"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 in NSW."
Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said the government was investing $600 million in essential infrastructure to better protect communities.
"During an emergency every second counts. The new radio site in the Goulburn area will make it easier for our local emergency services to communicate when it matters most," he said.
"The PSN's expansion represents the biggest investment in critical communications infrastructure by the NSW Government in two decades."
