Integrated MOTOTRBO Communications System.
Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) and Radiocoms Systems Ltd, Platinum Elite Partner today announced that Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service will deploy 1,000 MOTOTRBO firefighting radios and the WAVE 5000 Mobile Communicator service. The agreement will enhance communications and the safety of fire staff both in-vehicle and on the frontline.
“The safety of our local Hampshire citizens and wellbeing of our firefighters is of paramount importance to the fire service, which is why we have chosen to upgrade our communications equipment to an advanced digital system. Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service aims to be fully digital by August 2017,” said Peter Clarke, station manager operational technologies.
“As a fire and rescue service, we cover 1,455 square miles of the country, protecting millions of Hampshire residents and visitors. We require a communication service that could provide an enhanced level of safety, clarity and functionality that is simple and intuitive to use so that our teams can concentrate on our primary objective: responding to incidents and protecting the public. We want our firefighters to have the best possible technology to feel equipped to deliver excellence in their roles,” concluded Clarke.
The result is a unified communications network that will enable Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service staff to experience a superior level of fireground communication in even the most difficult or hazardous conditions. The integrated service will see over 1,800 members of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service benefit from superior in-vehicle, in-building and frontline communications allowing the fire service to provide a superior level of support to 1.8 million Hampshire citizens.

Our experience, combined with Motorola Solutions innovative products and services, allows us to empower fire services such as Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, providing an enhanced level of service the public can rely on,” said Simon Bingham, Senior Account Manager, Radiocoms Systems Ltd.
