As towns expand, fire stations may struggle to alert crew in outlying areas due to geographic obstacles or weakened signal. Multitone can boost alerter range to ensure good coverage throughout the extended fire station catchment area through a combination of low power POCSAG radio repeaters, linking nearby fire station transmitters for call repeats, and the use of highly sensitive alerters.
With a solution tailored for your fire station, we can ensure your entire catchment area can receive alerter shouts, improving response rates and helping with crew recruitment and retention.
Boosting alerter range: the equipment
Multitone Low Power Repeater
The Multitone Low Power Repeater extends the range of your alerter network and helps improve reception in areas of poor coverage. Useful in urban and outlying rural areas, the repeater can ensure coverage inside buildings, improve overall reception and boost the network over or around geographic obstacles. It can be mounted in church towers, houses, on top of office blocks and so on.
PicoPOC Low Power POCSAG Repeater
The PicoPOC Low Power POCSAG Repeater is a small, wall-mountable unit for ensuring indoor coverage continuity for your alerter network. It is ideal for when a crew member encounters difficulty receiving alerts in their own home.
