Cabinet Systems for Fire and Rescue
Cabinet systems that are specific to fire and rescue operations have the typical radio and communication panels, but may very well have command boards and spots for air tanks and fire extinguishers. These are command cabinets with storage. Many fire and rescue command cabinets come standard with a command board and storage compartments for an oxygen tank or fire extinguishers. Many also have a recessed radio mounting face plate, and an open storage area for the installation of SCBA brackets.
Command Cabinet Radio Systems
Many command cabinet systems come with radio communication and computer docking capabilities. These are very important in command and control situations and can be all the difference when response times matter most. Kenwood radios offer trunking and conventional technology featuring 6.25 kHz digital narrow band operation. The Kenwood NEXEDGE ™ was designed to provide advanced communication solutions to satisfy the needs of private enterprise and public safety professionals. These radios includes features such as FM Analog @ 25 and 12.5 kHz channels, NXDN ™ digital @ 12.5 and 6.25 kHz channels, compliance with current frequency assignments, and NEXEDGE ™ will easily convert to very narrow bandwidths in the future.
Resources for all Emergency/Disaster Response volunteers
Anybody who expects to serve as a first responding volunteer in an unexpected emergency or catastrophe in the United States should acquire at the very least some training that covers the Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS), of which the ICS is a vital attribute. Most of the federal government and various other public agencies and volunteer organizations are active in calamities (VOADs) under whose supervision a volunteer could call for either serve evidence of such training or will certainly quickly require it.
