Department of Community Safety

qas vehicleThe Department of Community Safety (DCS) provides ambulance, fire, search & rescue, emergency management and hazardous materials services to the community of Queensland.

More than 8,300 staff and many thousands of volunteers work together to keep more than 4 million Queenslanders safe across the vast state of 1.77 million square kilometres.

DCS has three operational divisions; QLD Ambulance Service (QAS), Emergency Management Queensland (EMQ) and QLD Fire & Rescue Service (QFRS). These operational agencies provide vital services in all phases of emergency and disaster management including prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. Policy and Executive Services and Business Support Services divisions provide strategic and business support.

DCS requires radio communications to support operations in responding to a wide range of scenarios including traffic accidents, fires, major medical emergencies, chemical and oil spills, floods, cyclones, storm surges, aircraft accidents and search and rescue.

DCS has some of the largest radio communications networks in QLD. These networks have been installed to meet the ever increasing demands placed on emergency services and are configured specifically to suit operational requirements.

Emergency sign_DCSDCS currently operates six (6) separate analogue radio networks and a QLD Ambulance Service (QAS) mobile data network to support in field communication. DCS has in excess of 400 radio sites across all operational divisions.

Having provided a high level quality of audits and maintenance work for the DCS previously, AA Radio were again chosen to conduct scheduled maintenance and servicing of the DCS communications equipment to ensure the ongoing reliability of such an important system.

With the known capabilities of AA Radio, a reputation in providing excellence in service and a genuine care and sense of pride in the provision of those services, it is clear why AA Radio Services was the right choice for the Department of Community Safety radio maintenance and servicing.
