Fairgrounds are lively, often packed, places when they’re in use. Whether it’s a fall festival, a concert, a Christmas market, or other large event, successful management and operation of a fairground requires good and reliable communication first and foremost.
Planners and managers for events on fairgrounds typically look to two-way radios for their events due to their reliability, durability, battery power, and seamless communication, whether on the fairground itself or event parking area.
Below, we go over some of the best benefits of push-to-talk two-way radios for fairgrounds.
While you may think that cell phones would work fine at your fairground, cell phones don’t stand up to two-way radios for a variety of reasons, most importantly though, because cell phones aren’t reliable.
Unlike cell phones, two-way radios don’t depend on good reception to transmit and receive messages. This means that you can always rely on a good two-way radio to serve it’s main function and keep people connected, regardless of the place or distance.
Depending on the weather and climate, your fairground may seem extreme humidity, snow, rain, or dust. Even if you do have your events on the best days, there is always the chance that people can drop devices, get them wet, or get them dirty. Two-way radios are IP rated for durability and water resistancy, so if you require them, you can get one that can withstand shortfalls, water, and dirt.
Fast and easy communication
Another benefit of two-way radios is that they provide instant communication at the push of a button. This means that any staff working at the fairground can get in touch with other staff immediately, without needing to dial a number or worry if the receiver will pick up the call. Instead, the message is broadcasted to every staff member that needs to hear the message.
Plus, there is even the option for multiple channels if you have a large staff and want to keep certain channels uncrowded with unnecessary chatter.
In this day and age, everyone needs to take extra safety precautions, especially when it comes to events with larges groups of people concentrated in one place. Using two-way radios at fairgrounds allows essential information regarding the safety and security of guests to be immediately disseminated so the proper protocols can be taken and the authorities can be called.
