New £3.8bn emergency communications network 'could put lives at risk'
if it flops, report warns
Ministers are looking at a scheme to replace the current Airwave radio system
In future 999 crews will share commercial 4G network run by EE with the public
The Commons’ Public Accounts Committee expressed concern about the move
Lives will be put in jeopardy if a £3.8billion project to introduce a
new communications network for the emergency services is a flop, a
damning report warns today WED.
Ministers have embarked on a ‘high-risk’ scheme to replace the current
Airwave radio system used by fire, police and ambulance crews.
In future, 999 crews will share a super-fast commercial 4G network run
by mobile phone firm EE with the public.
But in a scathing report, the Commons’ Public Accounts Committee
expressed concern about moving on to the controversial Emergency
Services Network (ESN) because the ‘unproven technology’ risked
potentially dangerous failures.
MPs are concerned that ENS, which will be used by the 105 police, fire
and ambulance services in the UK, may not meet security needs.
The committee urged the Government to address ‘real security concerns’
about the communications network’s ability to function on the London
Underground – to avoid the risk of call blackouts.
