Basingstoke, England – Sept. 18th, 2014 – Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) today announced that Greater Manchester Fire Service (GMFRS) has selected MOTOTRBO™ radios with IMPRES™ audio quality and noise cancelling audio accessories to enhance fire-ground communications and safety for 1,200 firefighters across the North West of England.
Working with Motorola Solutions partner Radiocoms Systems Limited, GMFRS has provided fire and rescue service officers with more than 500 Motorola Solutions MOTOTRBO radios, which improve voice quality and clarity even in the noisiest of emergency situations.
The MOTOTRBO radios with IMPRES Industrial Noise Cancelling Remote Speaker Microphones and noise-cancelling earpieces help suppress ambient noise, amplify loudness and improve voice intelligibility. This ensures firefighters using breathing apparatus (BA), even when fighting fires deep inside buildings or outside operating noisy equipment – pumps, positive pressure ventilation (PPV) fans or ultra-high pressure (UHP) lances – can now clearly hear instructions.
Mark Scoales, Senior Radio/Voice Communications Analyst, GMFRS
“The MOTOTRBO radios offer improved functionality, flexibility, coverage and mission critical clear communications, decisively for BA wearers and officers operating PPV fans and UHP lances. Our firefighters’ feedback has been exceptional. They now know that their messages will be heard clearly, the first time.”
Iain Clarke, Vice President, Western Europe Government Sales, Motorola Solutions
“Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service’s move to MOTOTRBO has improved firefighting capabilities and efficiencies, as well as public and operational safety. MOTOTRBO provides robust, cost effective, future-proof and efficient communications which co-operate with neighbouring fire services in the North West of England.”
