Based at the Leahurst Campus on the Wirral, this specialist veterinary team provides equine care round-the-clock, including 24-hour emergency cover. The staff who work in this high-tech, fast-paced environment are dealing with critical and often life threatening situations. Robust and reliable communications between team members are a necessity. We are delighted that this worthy service has now put its trust in Brentwood Communications for the supply of vital two way radio equipment.
The Equine Hospital will be using Motorola DP4801 digital radios combined with a Motorola DR3000 repeater programmed with a Capacity Plus System. This technology allows staff to have instant and multiple conversations without having to wait for a free channel; which is an essential timesaver in their mission-critical work.
The Motorola DP4801 radio, a state-of-the-art model, can adjust the radio volume to counteract any background noise automatically, giving users exceptional audio clarity and reducing the risk of missed communications. This is crucial in the veterinary scenario where missed messages could potentially put and animal’s life at risk.
Injury and sickness can make horses unpredictable. These radios can be programmed with several safety features, like the Panic Button and Lone Worker, making them an invaluable additional benefit for ensuring the security of the staff who work alongside these animals. The Panic Button feature allows users to call for help at the push of a button and the Lone Worker feature can help track the safety of staff members working alone.
Providing timely help for equine casualties relies on the hospital management and admin teams knowing where their medical staff are at all times. The TRBOnet Plus, a remarkable piece of software, enables them to transform their desktop PCs into dispatcher systems. This works together with the GPS installed on the radios to enable location tracking of their mobile work groups. This is vital when deciding which member of staff is best to respond to a critical situation. With a simple glance at the dispatcher system they can tell which vet is closest to the animal in need, and can quickly dispatch a transmission with the relevant information.
The TRBOnet system also uses Job Ticketing, which allows management to send these time-critical jobs and tasks to medical staff via the radios’ text messaging feature, which is ideal when verbal communications aren’t appropriate, and allows them the track their progress on screen. The system can also record all individual, private and group calls, for future reference.
This feature-rich package also has other options that can be added in the future including Telephone, Fire Alarm and Building Management System (BMS) Interfaces.
