Did you know…that there are 10,336 state parks across 50 U.S. States? Those state parks account for nearly 250,000 campsites and almost 10,000 cabins where families can get away from technology and enjoy a little peaceful communion with Mother Nature. It’s a lot of ground to cover for the men and women tasked with keeping the people, plants, and animals that inhabit these state parks safe and protected.
What are State Parks?
State parks are public lands that are protected for natural beauty, historical significance, recreational potential, and countless other reasons. They are staffed by crews of dedicated professionals who have a lot of ground to cover in their appointed rounds. Among these professionals are the following:
- Park rangers
- Maintenance staff and employees
- Park supervisors and managers
- Park superintendents
- Concessions and retail store staff
- Assistant park superintendents
These people work in wide-open spaces, across miles and miles of sparsely inhabited real estate, and often alone. This means the ability to communicate emergencies, problems, and other information quickly to others is critical for their safety, the safety of park guests, and the safety of the plant and wildlife that call these parks home.
Benefits of Push-to-Talk Two Way Radios for State Parks
Push-to-talk two-way radios make this essential communication possible. Here’s how it can help you improve communication and safety for your state park crew. When you work with Peak PTT for your push-to-talk two-way radios, you will find the benefits of a nationwide 4G network to be as appealing as the ability to communicate with everyone on your team at once – no matter where they are in your park.
Another huge benefit of rugged push-to-talk two-way radios for state parks is the GPS location features of these radios. This means when rangers call for the aid of fallen hikers, rock climbers, or stranded boaters, rescue teams know precisely where to go.
Beyond that, these two-way radios have a few modern conveniences in the form of apps and features, like “lone worker”, “man down”, and panic button features that promote safety.
