Wireless Priority Service System

All councils have been contacted in the last few weeks about WPSS – this is about making sure we support the best possible chance of you being able to stay in contact with the Disaster Management system during an event – especially when there is high levels of congestion on the mobile phone network.

LGAQ, LocalBuy and Telstra have extended the funding of the WPSS access until March 2016 – the only cost to councils will be for usage until the next local elections!

Additionally, this funding will be made available to purchase every council a new “ruggedised” handset – this means it will be tougher, dust-proof, water-proof and long life battery – that can be used as your 24/7 contact point.
