Recreation and Events – How Two Way Radios Help
The spring to autumn months in Canada are the busiest months across the country for events and recreation. Tourism numbers soar, recreational activities become busier, and festivals and events go into full swing.
In all of these situations, staff members are able to run a more effective day-to-day operation with proper communication. In the majority of these situations, teams have found the best communication to be with two way radios – and for many reasons.
Let’s take a look at how:
Golf Courses – Whether it’s a city or country course, team members span a wide area, but need to be in touch with managers throughout the facility. Golfers pay good money for great experiences on your course, and two way radios have not only been proven to allow quick answers to questions or concerns, but have also kept staff members looking professional as they make their way around your course. The biggest pay off with two way radios on golf courses is simple – you can get more golfers through your course by marshalling them and keeping pace. Did you know the difference between a 4.5 hour round and a six hour round is up to 48 golfers? That extra income alone would pay for your investment in two way radios in just one day. And, whether it’s the sixth hole or the 18th, logistics are better executed when teams are in touch.
Sporting Events – These events are loud and often have staff members, volunteers and facilitators working at all corners of the event. Ensuring that the event runs seamlessly begins with keeping those team members in touch. Two way radios can work throughout these facilities with no issue and, on top of that, are not impacted by the noise levels of a screaming fan or whistle blowing. With excellent range and automatic background noise reduction possibilities, two way radios are a clear answer.
Outdoor Leisure – From organized events to personal use, two way radios have enabled a number of people to keep safe in the wilderness in various forms – from camping, hunting to hiking. We’ve seen the value in this with both companies that put on these excursions, to people who want to keep in touch with their family and friends they’re spending time with in the backcountry. With the right two way radio, remote areas are less of a concern, as coverage allows participants to keep in touch with each other.
Festivals – It takes a number of different teams to run a flawless event and two way radios are perfect for keeping individual teams in contact, and connecting them all when necessary and logistics are of utmost importance. Security members are able to monitor situations in a professional manner, while the other teams can keep in touch, and ensure details are in order.
A number of people don’t see the value in a two way radio until they need it. Whether it’s a medical call or security problem, to something that requires a number of team members to be in touch quickly, two way radios answer that need and more.
Activities in Canada, however, don’t end with the good weather. Canadians excel in winter sports and activities as well – from ski hill to hockey rink. Two way radios have been an easy solution for team members working throughout those facilities as well, working in all corners of the workplace to ensure employees stay in touch.
