As Spring 2015 arrives, BearCom, America's only nationwide dealer and integrator of wireless communications equipment, today outlined how summer camps – including day camps – can use two-way radios to boost safety and improve service this year.

According to the American Camp Association, each year more than 11 million children and adults head off to summer camps. With that many people in the great outdoors, investing in flexible communications equipment can deliver significant benefits to camp staff to improve camper safety and streamline day-to-day operations.

“Using two-way radios makes perfect sense in camps when counselors and other staff need to stay in touch. The instant push-to-talk functionality enables one-to-one and one-to-many communications to help ensure that camp experiences are fun and memorable” said Hugh Johnston, Purchasing Manager for BearCom.

As the leading two-way radio dealer and integrator in the U.S., BearCom highlights three common ways that camp staff can use two-way radios:

  • Emergency Response: Staff can use two-way radios to respond quickly and save precious seconds when an incident requires additional help or support.
  • Operations: Two-way radios can help manage logistics related to typical camp functions, including: housing, food services, supplies, activities, and more.
  • Team Collaboration: Camp staff can use two-way radios to stay engaged and check in periodically.

Johnston indicated that the Motorola Solutions RMM2050 MURS two-way radio is well-suited use in medium-sized camps. “The RMM2050 is a 2-watt VHF radio that’s license free and perfect for outdoor use where natural obstructions might hinder performance. It’s rugged, lightweight and easy to use, so there’s little staff training needed.”

Johnston also noted that the RMM2050 is ideal for camp properties. “With a streamlined design and clear, crisp audio, the RMM2050 radio can help manage operations and coordinate activities instantly.”

The Motorola RMM2050 radio features a channel announcement with voice alias, audible call tones, channel scan, hands-free VOX mode (with optional accessories), voice scrambling and more.
