Improving emergency responses with digital radio technology
It’s difficult to imagine any nation displaying more stoic resilience in the face of intimidation than the British, as recent terrorist attacks in London and Manchester have shown. Our thoughts are with all those affected, the more so given our proximity to Manchester Arena, where one of these atrocities took place in May.
While we all share the same dogged determination to carry on with our lives, undaunted and unyielding against those who would have us be fearful, it’s natural that people will be mindful of their security and safety as we go forward.
At public events and venues up and down the country, museums, shopping centres and tourist attractions, crowds can now expect to undergo more rigorous security checks. In true British spirit, no doubt the delays this will cause will be endured in cheerful camaraderie.
Security organisers in many of these settings will also be drawing up strategies to improve their systems. Fast and efficient communication will be a vital tool. If they aren’t already using two way radios, their thoughts may now be turning in this direction for the first time and, indeed, we are experiencing an increased number of enquiries for radio systems in a security environment.
Recent advances in digital two way radio technology include versatile features which wouldn’t have been thought possible a few years ago. GPS location, texting, emergency buttons, Man Down and Lone Worker settings are just a few examples of functionality that can improve not only response during an emergency but the productivity of the security staff using them.
If you need expert advice to help you get the most out of the advances in digital radio technology, DCS 2 Way Radio has many years’ experience. We can work with you to improve emergency responses and communication in your organisation.
