Do you know what it’s like to work on a rescue team? Why would a traditional radio suit their needs better than a high-tech cell phone? Why does the RT80 stand out among hundreds of Retevis radios as the best radio for rescue and firefighting? You will find the answer to ‘how to unleash the maximum power of the RT80 in rescue and firefighting.’
Question 1: What is a rescue team and what is their work?
Not everyone has the ability to save themselves and survive in danger and disaster. We often rely on those who have the ability and courage to bring help and hope. That’s what rescue teams are for. They often work in search and rescue operations in dangerous mountains, rivers, or areas. In addition, patrol, safety inspection, safety work training, and so on are their daily work.
The danger is everywhere, and fortunately, they are always there.
Question 2: Why is the RT80 the best choice for rescue teams?
RT80 is a UHF or VHF DMR radio, but the UHF is more suitable for rescue members because most radios are working in the UHF band, such as FRS radios, GMRS radios, and most licensed radios. So, UHF RT80 is more helpful for rescue members.
And the digital and analog modes can build the connection to more users.
And it is also an IP67 waterproof and dustproof radio. Disasters are always accompanied by bad weather. So, the waterproof and dustproof radio can work in rainy, snowy, or sand weather as normal.
Remote stun and kill functions are important for the rescue team. In the process of rescue, items are often lost. In order to ensure the privacy and safety of information, remote stunning and remote death functions can reduce the loss to the greatest extent.
The lone worker function is super for patroling. The function can be set up on the software, and users can decide the response time. During the patrol, you need to report to the receiver within the specified time. If there is no response after that time, an alarm will be triggered.
And other functions are also helpful for secure members, like private call, group call, and all call functions, emergency alarm function, FM radios function, etc. The programming guide is there. If you have some new needs on rescue radios, please leave them in the comment section.
Question 3: To compare with the smartphone, why do we have to use two-way radios?
You may be concerned, all the functions can be realized on the cell phone, why not use a cell phone in rescue working?
In sparsely populated areas, there are few telecom base stations and cellphone reception is poor, so a lack of cellphone service during a rescue would cause additional losses. The radio transmits data through electromagnetic waves, and electromagnetic waves are everywhere, so in sparsely populated areas electromagnetic waves can be an important carrier of information.
Otherwise, cell phones are more likely to distract rescue workers. If in the working, the calls will distract the members, which may lead to bad results.
Plus, mobile phones are expensive and fragile, while radios are drop-tested and will be more durable.
On the whole, if you work on the rescue or adventure, a functional two-way radio is necessary. To nip it in the bud, two-way radio is always in the gear of Preppers/Survivalists. So, if you need to recommend or discount, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help you.
