Lifeguards play an essential role in ensuring the safety of individuals at the beach, swimming pool, and lakes. During the summer, these places are a haven for people who want to escape the summer heat and relax by the water and all of them rely on lifeguards to ensure their safety in case anything goes wrong.
With the increasing demand for efficient communication among lifeguards, push-to-talk two-way radios have become the go-to communication tool. Below we’ll discuss some of the benefits of using push-to-talk two-way radios for lifeguards.
1) Instant Communication
Push-to-talk two-way radios are designed for quick and efficient communication. With just a push of a button, lifeguards can communicate with their team members instantly. This means that in case of an emergency, lifeguards can immediately contact their colleagues for assistance. It also allows them to communicate effectively when coordinating activities or handling a situation that requires multiple lifeguards’ attention.
2) Better Alternative Than Cellphones
Cell phones are not an ideal option for lifeguards. First of all, if lifeguards are using their phones to communicate with others, patrons of the pool or beach might think that they’re not paying attention and taking personal calls. Secondly, lifeguards are oftentimes younger people who will be more tempted to use their cellphones to scroll social media or talk with their friends while they’re on their shift.
Radios on the other hand will prevent lifeguards from viewing distractions on their phones and make it clear to customers that they’re working while using the radio.
Lifeguards work in a harsh environment, and their communication tools need to withstand these conditions. Two-way radios are designed to be rugged and durable, able to withstand exposure to water, sand, and extreme temperatures. This makes them an ideal choice for lifeguards who need a reliable communication tool.
For a rugged radio that is perfect for lifeguards, check out the PTT-584G which has an IP rating of 67.
4) Extended Battery Life
Two-way radios have an extended battery life, which means they can last for a full day of use. This is important for lifeguards who spend long hours on the job and need to have reliable communication throughout their shifts.
To make charging easier and to better organize lifeguards’ radios, you should invest in a multi-charger like the PTT 394 multi-charger. This makes keeping track of radios much simpler and will reduce the chances of misplacing a radio or forgetting to charge it at the end of a shift. Plus, it allows you to charge 8 batteries at once, ensuring that they’re always fully charged.
5) Noise Cancellation
Push-to-talk two-way radios come equipped with noise cancellation features that filter out background noise. This ensures that the communication between lifeguards is clear and easy to understand, even in noisy environments.
