The event attracts people from all over the borough who come to enjoy the fairground rides, food and drink stalls, entertainment, and of course the fireworks. All money raised is given to local charities, who also play a part in organising the event. To date, Chelmsford Fireworks has managed to raise approximately half a million pounds which has all been invested back into good causes in the local community.
Brentwood Communications was delighted to provide radio communications equipment for an event that offers so much enjoyment for the local community, and also supports excellent causes.
To provide easy and secure communication between staff on the big day, as well as during setup and takedown, we recommended Motorola DP3600 digital radios. These devices are perfect for outdoor use thanks to their rugged design, which is water resistant and also sealed against dust and wind. The DP3600 provides clear and reliable voice communications, which was especially essential for those workers preparing the explosives featured in the main event of the night. This model also supports quick text messaging as an extra communication option.
The LED display along with its large and easy-to-use buttons makes navigating menus and scanning easy. A large, textured push-to-talk button and powerful front speaker makes voice communication just as simple. The battery can easily go eight hours or more on a single charge, ensuring there would be no loss of power during the event. The 1000 channel capacity ensured there was plenty of frequencies available for all different teams to coordinate individually during the event.
The Motorola DP3600 now has a newer model available – the Motorola DP4800e, but Brentwood are still happy to keep in their hire fleet due to its reliability and rich features. The newer Motorola DP4800 includes many of the same great features, such as display and full keypad as well as improvements to unit weight, frequency range, and other areas.
To accompany the Motorola DP3600 digital radios, we also provided heavy-duty headsets. These over-the-ear accessories allow for convenient communication when staff need their hands free to complete other tasks. The closed-back design of the headset provides some noise cancellation, making it easier to hear incoming messages even when you have fireworks exploding in the background!
In addition to regular heavy-duty headsets, we also provided single-sided headsets. These allow for clear communications and noise cancellation in one ear, while leaving the other ear open for talking with other workers in the immediate area. These headphones are padded and cushioned for maximum comfort, while still featuring a heavy duty build to maximise durability. They also work with multiple different press-to-talk switch designs and can be configured for left or right-handed use.
