Two-Way Radio Applications in Action

Two-Way Radio Applications in Action

Let’s take a look at how workers equipped with digital two-way radio applications can better respond to incidents in emergency situations.

Emergency situations & incidents can be broken down into 5 simple steps: the incident, the notification to emergency teams, the response/ action that need to be taken, resolution & finally an evaluation.

1. INCIDENT

A fire breaks out on the production floor of a large manufacturing facility. 400 employees are currently in the building and potentially at risk. The smoke detectors are triggered and the fire alarm is activated.

2. AUTOMATIC NOTIFICATION

[row][span2]ACS

[/span2][span5]The on-site Fire Marshal automatically receives notification of the fire alarm and its location on their MOTOTRBO™ radio. They accept the alarm and begin the evacuation process. Meanwhile, the off-site Warehouse Manager receives notification of the fire alarm on their cell phone via email.[/span5][/row]

3. RESPONSE

[row][span2]MOTOTRBO-RBX+Plus-Two-Way-Radio-Telephony[/span2][span5]Using their MOTOTRBO radio, the Fire Marshal calls 9-1-1 to report the fire. To keep the security guards informed, the Fire Marshal dials extension #142 and delegates tasks to the entire group.[/span5][/row]

 

[row][span2]GIPS[/span2][span5]The Response Team quickly finds a missing employees’ location using IPS & GIPS.[/span5][/row]

 

[row][span2]MOTOTRBO-CLW-Lone-Worker-Monitoring[/span2][span5]Remotely activate CLW to monitor the safety of the Response Team operating in the emergency zone.[/span5][/row]

 

4. RESOLUTION

→ All employees are evacuated to safety
→ Authorities arrive promptly and contain the fire
→ The fire alarm is resolved and the Fire Marshal closes the alarm

5. EVALUATION

[row][span2]R2R[/span2][span5] The following day, administrators playback the calls between the Fire Marshal and 9-1-1 Operator. Their actions are reviewed and sent to the insurance company to limit liability.[/span5][/row]

Two-way Radio Applications Result in a connected safe & well-informed workplace.
