Situated in the centre of Newcastle, City Church is a large building consisting of a 500 capacity hall and 5 floors of conference and meeting rooms. On Sundays the building is used for children’s work on most floors with the main hall full of people. The building is also utilised during the week with 3 external charity tenants and various classes and evening groups.
Being a hive of activity it is paramount to have a good communication system in place and for this City Church turned to SFL who after listening to their requirements recommended Motorola DP1400 radios. When asked about the main requirements for the radios Facilities Manager Sally Hill commented:
‘The main requirement is for Sunday morning and large events, to have communication between the stewards in the main hall and each team leader on the other side of the building for safety and security, especially during a fire alarm. The church staff also use them during the week for lone working on certain floors or the cleaners who go around the building alone’
The new system is living up to their expectations with Sally further commenting:
‘We love the radios. They are great with the charging station as they all have a place so don’t go missing. They look and sound professional and it gives the stewards extra confidence in their evacuation procedure.’
Sally also praised the buying experience from SFL Mobile Radio detailing:
‘Neil was great and put up with a lot of questions and stalling from my side. He was always quick to reply when I had an answer and didn’t chase me too much when I didn’t give him answers straight away, which was much appreciated when I have so many companies getting in contact. He was able to explain which radio was best and why, and give comprehensive quotes for the radios I was interested in, as well as help us get a trial with the ones we wanted’
SFL Mobile Radio were delighted to supply radios to such a thriving venue. If you have any requirements for radios or would like to discuss how improving your communications can benefit your business call us on 0151 334 9160.
