Reliable Two-Way Emergency Radio Communication Enhancement

During an emergency, reliable communication is critical. Staying informed with clear radio transmissions between first responders inside a building and emergency personnel outside the building can help prevent further injuries and save more lives. Emergency Responders lose communications when in-building radio signals are weakened by structures such as concrete, windows and metal. To solve these communication challenges, look no further than Notifier and it’s distributor Koetter Fire Protection.

Designed and customized to meet all public safety frequency band ranges, it is intended to provide reliable two-way radio and FirstNet signal coverage inside building, tunnels and other structures. The band selective design delivers reliable performance in even the most challenging RF environments. When combined with Notifier’s fire system, Notifier provides the reliability and quality expected from a life safety solution.
