Two Way Radio and The Battle Against The Storms

By: Mark Burdett

Imagine the scene, you go to bed on a seemingly normal March evening having just heard on the news that storms are forecast close to where you live and where you work. During the night you can hear the wind howling outside your window and car alarms going off in the distance. You somehow manage to fall asleep again only to hear the familiar sound of your alarm clock waking you for another day.

Now picture this scenario when you go downstairs to make you morning cup of tea or coffee only to be faced with your ground floor flooded, no power to your home and may of your prized possessions floating around your living room.

For literally thousands of people this nightmare has become reality in recent years and for those people knowing that help is now at hand to help tackle the aftermath of such a tragedy is perhaps a little late. However, for home and business owners in general, modern 2 ways radio is now being used to make sure such events are handled in the very best way possible. And whilst they will not be able to help repair the loss adverse weather and flooding can cause, two way radios are being used by emergency services, business owners and home owners to make sure the devastation caused by flooding and hurricanes is dealt with quickly and effectively.

In many cases where flooding and storms hit, power lines are cut including telephone lines so communication is often extremely difficult. This can hinder the speed and effectiveness of the rescue and repair process and therefore more suffering is suffered. The emergency services realise this and therefore many take advantage of modern two way radio which allows them to communicate over a wide area without having to rely on external sources of power which many other forms of communication tool suffer from.

Two Way Radio whilst not a new way for businesses to communicate does give them an ideal solution to keeping in touch, for a relatively low cost, even in the most adverse weather conditions.

The effectiveness of communication in times of hardship and tragedy can often make the difference in saving time, saving money and even in saving lives.

If you want to make sure your business or indeed your home has a fail safe method of communication that can be relied upon in even the worst of conditions, 2 way radios could be just what you need.

Make sure you, your family, your staff and your property is safe at all times and use two way radio to make sure it happens.
