UK Fire & Rescue Service rolls out MOTOTRBO Radios.
Radiocoms has been providing hire, sales, maintenance and managed services for voice and data communication systems and solutions across a multitude of industries worldwide for over 47 years; Radiocoms is on the Fire & Rescue Service’s procurement framework and has worked with Services throughout the UK since 2004.
This Fire & Rescue Service was previously using an analogue radio system. It wanted to upgrade to a digital system, to ensure crystal-clear incident ground communications, better radio battery life, ease of management, and to be in line with other Fire and Rescue Services nationally. The Service once again turned to long-term Motorola Solutions Platinum Elite partner, Radiocoms Systems Ltd
Radiocoms is supporting a gradual digital roll-out of 1,000 units across the entire area covered by this Fire Service; digital radios have already been deployed to all appliances (mobile fire units, fire engines and fire trucks) and the roll-out is now continuing with fire officer radios (in small vehicles, attending major incidents to manage situations) and at fixed locations. The flexibility of the MOTOTRBO handsets allows them to be used in analogue mode, until the whole system is ready for digital switchover.
“The total package Radiocoms and Motorola Solutions provide – from ease of programming, updating and management via Radio Management, to the next-day radio replacement with Motorola Solutions’ service – ensures this Fire & Rescue Service can rely on their mission-critical incident ground radio communications.”
