Quick Guide MINITOR VI Pagers for Fire Departments

RCS knows volunteer firefighters need to be alerted when an emergency call is received, but they don’t always have access to cell phone networks -especially in rural areas. When lives are on the line, there is no room for error. Fire service pagers are still the most popular choice for alerting responders of emergencies. They are convenient because they can send messages to multiple people at once; they run on high-capacity batteries, for a longer life span; and they’re durable in harsh environments. 

Motorola MINITOR VI pagers deliver reliable alerts for emergency situations and can help your organization keep people safe. RCS’s Motorola MINITOR VI two-tone voice pager from RCS Communications offers the best solution for your volunteer fire department’s need to respond quickly and effectively during an emergency situation.
