FIRE & RESCUE

Next Generation Communication for Firefighters & Incident Management

When Fire Rescue teams need to communicate critical information to individuals or groups in harm’s way, LRAD systems broadcast real-time messages with exceptional vocal clarity from close range out to 2,000 meters.

Unlike conventional loudspeakers, bullhorns and outdoor P.A. systems that disperse sound in all directions and have limited loudness and poor vocal quality, LRAD’s proprietary driver and waveguide technology focuses sound in a 30° beam while substantially reducing sound levels behind the long-range communication systems and in surrounding areas.

■ LRAD Systems go Anywhere Communication is Needed

LRAD systems are safe, rugged, portable, easy to operate. Every LRAD system comes with an all-weather microphone for live broadcasts and a hardened MP3 player to record and playback messages.

Fully functional in austere environments, LRAD’s wide area broadcasts free firefighters and emergency responders to attend to other critical duties.

From hand portable devices to larger systems that mount temporarily or permanently on vehicles, vessels, trailers or helicopters, LRAD systems go anywhere communication is needed.

LRAD’s highly intelligible, multilingual voice messages and attention-commanding alert tones are clearly heard and understood over wind, engine, rotor wash and background noise in any type of terrain and environment.

■ LRAD Fire Rescue Communication Applications

FIRST RESPONDERS / INCIDENT MANAGEMENT
LRAD systems provide highly effective communication to improve safety, security and operational effectiveness during fire incidents, by:

  • Establishing safety zones and enforcing fire perimeters
  • Broadcasting notifications to bystanders and neighborhoods
  • Communicating instructions to trapped or confined individuals
  • Issuing evacuation, shelter-in-place and safe-to-return notifications from a single location
  • Communicating to firefighters when radios aren’t working

DISASTERS 
During wildfires, flooding, HAZMAT incidents,, train derailments, major road accidents and other crisis situations, a few individuals or several thousand people may be affected. LRAD systems are highly effective in communicating warnings, instructions and notifications locally and over wide areas during life threating events.


WARN & NOTIFY

  • Notify everyone in affected areas simultaneously
  • Quickly establish restricted areas
  • Warn of blocked evacuation routes

INSTRUCT & DIRECT

  • Provide stay / evacuate / safe exit routes
  • Quickly clear Hot Zones
  • Communicate concise and unambiguous messages to assist with DECON procedures
  • Create isolation and quarantine areas and provide information, instructions and reassurance to survivors.

From hand portable devices to larger systems that mount temporarily or permanently on vehicles, vessels, trailers or helicopters, LRAD systems go anywhere communication is needed.

LRAD’s highly intelligible, multilingual voice messages and attention-commanding alert tones are clearly heard and understood over wind, engine, rotor wash and background noise in any type of terrain and environment.

SEARCH & RESCUE / TECHNICAL RESCUES / MARINE RESCUES

LRAD systems provide fire rescue personnel a multifaceted communications capability deployable on the ground, in the water and from the air to quickly cover large areas and accelerate finding and rescuing conscious victims. LRAD’s highly intelligible, multilingual voice messages and alert tones are clearly heard and understood over wind, engine, rotor wash and background noise in any type of terrain and environment.

LRAD systems enable search and rescue teams to communicate to stranded or hidden victims by making them aware of rescue operations and providing assurance, encouragement and instructions on how they can help rescue teams find them.

For technical rescues of individuals attempting suicide, or persons stranded in high rise buildings, on bridges, causeways or other hard-to-access locations, LRAD provides a communication lifeline that facilitates successful rescues.

When people are trapped in cars or on rooftops by flooding or rapidly rising water, boat mounted LRAD system broadcasts help alleviate panic and provide assurance of how and when they will be rescued.

Public Safety agencies in more than 450 U.S. cities and counties rely on Genasys’ LRAD systems for critical communications and to save lives.
