UFBA Representative - Public Safety Network Working Group

Issue date:

The Membership Advisory Panel (MAP) is seeking expressions of interest from members to represent UFBA on the Fire and Emergency Public Safety Network Working Group.

The PSN is a joint programme of work between FENZ, Police, Wellington Free Ambulance, and St John to replace aging networks with modern digital capability.  In particular, the focus is on digitising our Land Mobile Radio (LMR), with our current technology in FENZ at its end of life.  There is also scope to include personal alerting and priority cellular in this work.

To effectively contribute to this working group, the ideal candidate should have a sound appreciation of FENZ operations, and some technical knowledge/project experience may be an advantage. 

Our representative will help shape how FENZ implements this technology into our trucks, stations, and COMCENs, helping inform the operational design.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out the below registration of interest form by COB Tuesday 22 November 2022 and return to MAP administrator, Jane Davie - jane@ufba.org.nz
