UHF handheld firefighter radio package

Discover our spectacular offer and choose for our McMurdo UHF handheld firefighter radio package. The complete UHF hardware package to comply with the latest regulations for fire fighting operations. The offer is only available via Alphatron Marine Netherlands.

November 2012, the IMO’s (International Maritime Organization’s) Maritime Safety Committee set out a number of measures designed to improve fire safety at sea, including the mandatory provision of specific types of handheld two-way radios for firefighting operations. This mandate means ships must carry firefighting radios that are explosion-proof or intrinsically safe.

Vessels constructed on or after 1 July 2014 must already carry these radios, but for ships constructed before 2014, compliance becomes mandatory on 1 July 2018.

The reliable rugged McMurdo SmartFind R8F UHF firefighter radio, made specifically for firefighting communications, is an intrinsically safe two-way radio that meets the new regulations.

Make sure you are ready and profit now from our package deal!
