Emergency Services Radios: Waterproof Options from Motorola

It goes without saying that emergencies are unpredictable and can occur at any time or place, regardless of weather and surroundings. Whether it’s firefighters, police or paramedics (or in some cases, all three) responding to an emergency situation, these professionals rely on emergency services radios to communicate – and their radios must be rugged enough to withstand everything from heavy rain to being dropped in water.

As such, waterproof radios are especially popular with emergency services professionals. In particular, these two emergency services radios from the Motorola MotoTRBO family offer exceptional waterproof choices that remain reliable under the most demanding conditions:
