There’s no time like the present!
And when it comes to Emergency Preparedness, you can never start planning too soon. Luckily, a solid plan doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. See our post Emergency Preparedness and Two Way Radios
When it comes to emergency planning in a business environment, it is important to understand that the two-way radio system is the heart of a building’s communications system. In most commercial buildings, management, engineering, and security staff all communicate with each other on hand-held radios operating on a radio infrastructure within the building. Most radio systems consist of a distributed antenna system connected to a radio repeater that operates off of the building’s electrical power.
In an emergency situation, it is very important that the radio system stays up and running even when the building power shuts off. This is why every building (even those with E-Power systems) should have an independent dedicated battery back-up system in place to be fully-prepared for a power outage.
Battery Back-Up Systems (BBS) come in different configurations. Each BBS is designed to meet the specifications of the radio system it will support.
A Standard BBS consists of several components:
- 100 amp hour AGM Batteries
- Battery Enclosure
- 3- Stage Battery Charger
- Harness (Cabling & Connectors)
