The emergency services mobile communications programme (ESMCP) will provide the next generation communication system for the 3 emergency ser-vices (police, fire and rescue, and ambulance) and other public safety users. This system will be called the emergency services network (ESN). ESN will provide the next generation integrated critical voice and broadband data ser-vices for the 3 emergency services. In addition to the 3 emergency services, over 300 other organisations, including British Transport Police, are active us-ers of the current emergency communication service. ESMCP is working with them to help manage their transition to ESN.

The costs of upgrading to the Emergency Services Network are available in the public domain at:
