Fujitsu has won $ 60 million mobile data terminals deployment at NSW Rural Fire Service – Services

Fujitsu Australia has secured a five-year agreement with the New South Wales Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) to digitize its mission critical systems, with the aim of improving fire emergency outcomes in the state.

The $ 60 million deal involves the construction, installation and maintenance of mobile data terminals in response to the incident on about 5000 RFS vehicles. The contract is also an extension of Fujitsu’s current relationship with NSW RFS.

The terminals use both Fujitsu’s special program and AWS-hosted software from first responder tech vendor Adashi Systems, which aims to give firefighters access to mission-critical information, such as satellites and topography image and weather updates.

Fujitsu said the terminals were also advancing some of the 76 recommendations set by the NSW Bushfire independent inquiry (established in response to the 2019-20 black summer bushfires) and were part of a $ 192 million NSW government grant to improve and provide new emergency infrastructure for firefighters.

The company said it has already started developing integration systems, while the installation of terminals in RFS vehicles will begin by the end of 2022.

NSW RFS Commissioner Rob Rogers said the 2019 to 2020 bushfire season was the hardest and most devastating fire season experienced in NSW.

“Following the NSW Bushfire Inquiry, we are working with the NSW Government and our partners to advance the recommendations set out in the report and ultimately improve how we plan, prepare for and respond to bush fires,” Rogers said.

“Our partnership with Fujitsu is an example of how we have achieved this, and we believe that digitizing our operations will help us become more agile and enhance our fire-fighting capabilities.”

Fujitsu’s current relationship with NSW RFS is for the management of its Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, which it implemented in 2020. The CAD system manages the deployment and deployment of resources in emergency and non-emergency incidents. emergency.

Earlier this month, Fujitsu Australia acquired CRN Fast50 company and ServiceNow partner Enable Professional Services, expanding the integrator’s ServiceNow capabilities.

The company also announced in April the expansion of the role of ANZ CEO Graeme Beardsell to include managing the company’s broader business in the Asia-Pacific, as well as the launch of a First Nations-led skills program including the Queensland government.
