Fire Department Radios: Motorola MotoTRBO’s Noise Cancelling Benefits

For fire department radios, reliability during a range of demanding situations is critical. With endless variables at play at the scene of an emergency, a firefighter’s two way radio must function optimally under a wide range of conditions in order to improve response times, enhance safety for responders and enable seamless communication when the stakes are high.

One variable that can hinder communication for firefighters responding to an emergency is noise – after all, they must be able to clearly send and receive audio messages even in the presence of blaring sirens or from inside a burning building. Motorola MotoTRBO radios were built with the needs of firefighters in mind, equipped with powerful audio and noise cancelling features in addition to features that support durability and ruggedness. Below we’ve identified the top three picks for fire department radios from the Motorola MotoTRBO family:
