Two-Way Radios Used for School Earthquake Drills

Last month, schools all around California participated in the annual “Shake Out” earthquake drills. Every year schools in California practice their emergency readiness in case of a surprising earthquake. Two-Way Radios are used for communication during these emergency drills.

During emergencies and disasters, cell phone towers are jammed and unreliable. The best way for a school to communicate during an emergency is with a two-way radio.

Discount Two-Way Radio Can Help You Narrowband

The FCC is serious about the 2013 FCC narrowband mandate. In an article by Urgent Communications, the deputy chief of the FCC’s public safety and homeland security bureau says, “Let me reiterate what the commission has said all along: We are not moving the narrowbanding deadline. It is, and will be, Jan. 1, 2013.” Once January rolls around the FCC plans to aggressively enforce the narrowband mandate.

Most likely, your current radios are completely compliant with the narrowband requirements and replacing them with new radios will not be necessary. They just need to be re-programmed.
