A recent article on FireRescue1 discussed the advancements in fireground communications systems and the ability of these systems to improve the safety and effectiveness of fire responses. In those mission critical moments, it is essential to have the right equipment and technology in place to ensure the safety of firefighters.
Motorola Solutions provides several options to help maintain firefighter safety and help incident commanders better track personnel.
- APX Personnel Accountability– In an emergency situation, firefighters face many potential life-threatening situations such as trauma or overexertion. Personnel Accountability systems are one of the most important safety measures for an incident commander (IC) to ensure the safety of first responders. Using our APX P25 radios, Personnel Accountability provides a streamlined GUI that can identify who has responded to the incident, conduct roll-calls and even issue an evacuation notification from the convenience of one user-friendly screen.
- APX P25 compliant radios – All APX radios from Motorola Solutions are certified to APCO Project 25 (P25) digital two-way radio standards. They offer guaranteed interoperability with other agencies and organizations using P25. Specifically for firefighter use, our APX 8000HXE, 6000XE and 8000XE radios are designed for the most extreme conditions.
- Two-tone voice pagers – The Motorola MINITOR VI™ Two-Tone Voice Pager features an improved receiver design and up to 16 minutes of voice recording. This is a rugged and reliable solution for fire departments to reach quickly in emergency situations.
