|Setcom's paper is entitled 'Key Considerations for Purchasing Fire Apparatus Communications Equipment'
Setcom Corporation™, a leading manufacturer of intercom systems and headsets for fire apparatus, just released a white paper - Key Considerations for Purchasing Fire Apparatus Communications Equipment - which addresses the major concerns faced by fire departments considering the purchase of communications equipment and illustrates the ways in which intercom systems provide solutions to issues public safety professionals face on a daily basis in their demanding work environment.
Purchasing considerations outlined in the white paper include application/usage, system configuration, desired features, installation, comfort, durability and support offered by the manufacturer. Setcom’s white paper also assists users in determining whether a wireless or wired system is appropriate, pointing out the benefits of wireless systems that are often overlooked, for instance, reduced time and cost of installation.
"A quality intercom system is crucial to the safety and performance of fire personnel,” said James Roberts, President of Setcom. "We wanted to publish a white paper to educate those in this industry on the importance of using intercom systems and headsets to protect their hearing, enhance communication, avoid potential department issues and boost efficiency during emergency vehicle operations.”
Setcom offers a wide range of wired and wireless intercom systems and headsets for high, medium and low-noise environments that can be configured for nearly every type of emergency vehicle. The Liberator™ Wireless headset, the most functional and durable wireless headset available, gets up to 500 feet of range, up to 14 hours of continuous talk time and is backward compatible with existing Setcom intercom systems and systems from other major vendors.
