London Fire Brigade, one of the largest firefighting and rescue organizations in the world, has selected Tait to supply its firefighters with new fireground radio equipment. Learn more about how this upgrade will keep the London Fire Brigade safe and connected.
Tait Communications and partner Radiocoms Systems Limited are proud to be selected by London Fire Brigade (LFB) to supply its firefighters with new fireground radio equipment. LFB needed improved range, clarity, safety and long term support with their comms network upgrade. Tait will provide radios, audio accessories and breathing apparatus integration to meet the specific needs of LFB firefighters.
London Fire Brigade is among the world’s largest fire and rescue services. It operates from more than 100 fire stations across the capital city’s 617 square miles (1600 square kilometers) and employs more than 5000 staff. The Bridgade’s programme to upgrade fireground communications is among changes it committed to following investigations into the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017.
The Tait Communications solution selected by London Fire Brigade equips firefighters with a powerful digital portable radio and a rugged speaker microphone. The equipment is intrinsically safe – meaning it is engineered and built to exceed safety standards for electrical equipment used in the kinds of potentially explosive atmospheres faced by firefighters.
Tait staff will be demonstrating the specialist fire ground solution at BAPCO 2023.
