Today, the Emergency buttons on the fire radios went live. The buttons have been a disabled feature on the radios since they were delivered a few years ago. A group of firefighters trained with the emergency button last year and found that it would be effective for the fire departments to use in a MAYDAY situation. EMS, Police and Fire Police have had these turned on when we received the radios.
To any Company 28 firefighter that didn’t receive training on the use of the emergency button or has questions, please contact a Fire Officer to go over the Radio Procedures with the Emergency Button Activation.
