In an emergency, clear lines of communication are essential. Radiocoms provides mission-critical two-way radio communications to 46 Fire and Rescue Services throughout the UK.
Motorola, Entel, Savox and Peltor are just some of the names of the manufacturers that work alongside Radiocoms to provide the highest level of professional equipment to the Emergency Services industry.
Portable, robust and extremely reliable within a specified network range, two-way radio remains a trusted communications tool for the emergency services. Even as the demands on the emergency services have changed over time, two-way radio has managed to keep pace. In an increasingly technology-based world where the sophistication of security threats is ever growing, the need for emergency services to work quickly in large teams over greater distances has increased greatly. But with the emergence of digital radio, greater output power means bigger operational ranges, and a whole range of new options to boost coverage besides; digital two-way radios can handle long-range deployments even across multiple sites.
Digital handsets come with a wide range of emergency alert and tracking features, which make them additionally useful given the demands and dangers of emergency operations. Where digital two-way radios have really become successful is in the development of different software solutions, which boost their mobility, operational range, network capacity and overall efficiency. Recently, we have begun to see examples of this type of large-scale, multisite deployment of digital two-way radio in crime prevention initiatives. Townlink schemes use the two-way radio to form networks of key stakeholders – local businesses, private security firms, police and local authority CCTV control centres – in a bid to tackle high street crime and antisocial behaviour.
Emergency services two-way radios include Analogue, Digital, Atex, Bone conductive microphones, locator services products provided to ensure the safety of the Fire personnel.
Modern digital two-way radios are also now GPS enabled as standard, so colleagues don’t just know when an alarm has been raised, they can accurately pinpoint where it has been raised from. Multisite technology and the ability to connect to other data points have also had a profound impact on the efficiency and scale of command and control for two-way radio use. City and regional-wide deployments like police forces and other emergency services can be managed from a single contact centre.
Benefits of two-way radio usage by emergency services include:
• Fast reaction at the push of a button
• Direct contact with all staff simultaneously
• Group calls
• 1 to 1 calls
• GPS tracking to locate staff
• Listen to conversations when radios not in use
• Supports text communications
• Earpieces provide silent communication if needed
• Remote power off in event of unauthorised use
• Clear voice/noise cancelling
• Reliable, ‘always on’ signal
• No reliance on mobile phone networks
