The Requirement for Two Way Radios
After recently winning the Queens Award for Voluntary Service, who better than NEO to bring the community together to celebrate The Queens Platinum Jubilee.
Like most of the country, NEO closed off the road for a street party to celebrate the occasion. Meaning the whole local community could get involved.
With the scale of the event and safety measures that came with it, there were many potential risks that needed to be considered. To ensure the event ran smoothly and safely, NEO required two way radio support.
In order to help with the essential communication; Lewis, the Youth and Marketing Officer at NEO, approached SFL Mobile Radio. SFL were happy to provide the support for NEO. By supplying the hire of Motorola DP4400e Digital Radios and earpieces free of charge.
The two way radios ensured the staff at NEO could maintain contact throughout the duration of the event. Making sure everything ran easily and safely. The event included a street barbecue, food stalls, stage with a DJ and bands, and children’s entertainment throughout the day.
The Hire Experience from SFL
When speaking with Lewis after the event about how the radios were for the team, he explained:
“The hire experience was simply amazing, being able to have access to the radios across our team enabled such clear and consistent communication between us all. No matter where we were around the community centre!”
Further detailing how the overall experience with SFL was, Lewis stated:
“The support and engagement from SFL given to us means a lot to our team. As with many other charitable organisations we try and make things happen for the community on shoestring budgets and with limited resource. Having the support from SFL with the radio hire ensured that we were able to divert funds within the organisation. To ensure we could have the best Jubilee Celebrations possible.”
SFL Mobile Radio are proud to have donated the radios in order to assist a dedicated team in bringing our local community together. With our hire contracts starting from 1 day, SFL can provide communication support for any scale event, short or long term.
