The holiday season is the time for skiers and snowboarders to hit the slopes. Although shredding the slopes can be fun for adrenaline junkies, winter sports have the potential to be very dangerous and sometimes serious injuries can occur. When this happens, snow patrols and emergency responders need reliable two-way communication to save lives and deal with hazardous conditions on the mountain.
Your snow patrols and emergency responders must use two-way radios to effectively communicate any issues they find on the slopes. The PRODIGI™ RDR3600 digital two-way radio is RCA’s durable, waterproof radio with a full keypad and display. It has emergency alarm features that snow patrollers can activate to immediately alert other team members that assistance is needed. This ensures a quick response which helps the injured get transportation to the bottom of the hill for emergency medical services.
Emergency responders and search and rescue teams can better coordinate their search efforts by using the RDR3600’s SelecTalk™ feature. This allows for private communication channels between specific users or groups without broadcasting over the entire system. The RDR3600 digital radio also has a wide coverage range that keeps your transmissions clear in rough, mountainous terrain. RCA digital radios even use 40% less power than normal analog radios. Your radio will last even longer during your search and rescue efforts without having to stop to charge your battery.
Two-way radios help your snow patrollers stay informed about changing conditions on the slopes. Any large obstructions such as fallen trees, broken equipment, and avalanche debris can be reported immediately, and the RDR3600 has an extra loud speaker so all of your team members can hear it. Plus the RCA digital radios can be equipped with chest packs and speaker mics to make it easier to use while wearing ski gear. You’ll never have to pull the radio off your belt to transmit and you won’t have to fumble around trying to press the PTT button with gloves on.
Your snow patrol and emergency response teams should be using reliable digital two-way radios to do their jobs quickly and efficiently. So give Discount Two-Way Radio a call now at 800-895-5122 and we’ll get your team the tools they need to keep your slopes and skiers safe this season.
