Ask most firefighters and fire officers to name one piece of equipment that they have a love/hate relationship with, and you can bet that most are going to say, “the @$&!ing portable radio!”
They love it when it does its job and they don’t have to think about it. And they hate it when it doesn’t – those times that cause a firefighter or fire officer to curse “this worthless brick!”
Some of the most common complaints would likely be:
L3Harris Technologies, a leading manufacturer of portable radios, has expanded its family of XL Project 25 (P25) handheld radios by introducing its new XL Extreme 400P, designed to comply with the latest fire standards on two-way, portable voice communications devices for use by emergency services personnel in the hazard zone.
Communications technology has advanced significantly in the past decade. Let’s talk a bit about some of the features you should expect in new fire radios:
The above features show that the radio and remote speaker microphone can continue to operate when exposed to harsh environments. You also need a radio that can support firefighter safety in a hazard zone with features that include, but are not limited to:
L3Harris Technologies has engineered the new XL Extreme 400P to deliver these features and more. For starters, the XL Extreme 400P is constructed using heat-resistant thermal materials and a reinforced seal design that can withstand the rigors of the environment firefighters encounter during interior structural firefighting operations. That construction enables the XL Extreme 400 to meet the operational requirements of the latest fire standards for handheld radio usage in harsh environments.
The XL Extreme 400’s unique Visual Zone Detection Indication feature provides you with quick visual confirmation that all users are on the same radio group or channel. (This addresses firefighter complaint No. 2 above). It also delivers loud clear audio with noise cancellation for added clarity.
The XL Extreme 400 has LTE operations capability, giving you the ability to transmit and receive voice or data over FirstNet, AT&T or Verizon networks It also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS capabilities built right in, and the dual SIM design allows multiple carries on the same device.
Interoperability is another critical feature, and the XL Extreme 400P has it. During multi-agency responses, this multi-band portable radio provides superior interoperability and secure voice and data transmission. You can be assured that your communications are safe and secure because the XL Extreme 400 uses the latest generation of end-to-end voice and data encryption.
In the extreme conditions, firefighters need a radio that can take the heat. With the XL Extreme 400P, L3Harris now offers a solution as tough as you are. Designed by firefighters for firefighters, the XL Extreme 400P is a P25-compliant radio that can withstand extreme heat and keep you connected so your crew can operate more safely, effectively and efficiently on any emergency scene, under any conditions.
So, what portable radio do you want to carry?
