In order to improve efficiency and accelerate decision making, you need devices that work together seamlessly and share information effortlessly. That’s why Motorola is building future-ready devices with innovative capabilities such as fast proximity pairing using mission-critical Bluetooth™ technology and applications that streamline information between all users and their various devices.


Meeting Increasing Firefighter Demands
From command to the front line, your firefighters put their lives on the line every single day. Yet, they are under constant stress and pressure from a lack of critical personnel, resources and funding to be their best.

Smart Solutions That Improve Safety And Response
Motorola fireground technologies are purpose-built to deliver intelligent, reliable communications with clear voice and real-time data to help your firefighters respond and prepare for the unexpected.

Meanwhile, location tracking, equipment telemetry sensors and live streaming video cameras in the incident area, keep your firefighters safe by enabling monitoring of air tank levels and fire conditions from incident command. Designed with user experience in mind, Motorola technologies are non-intrusive and intuitive to operate, offering a seamless flow of critical intelligence across users and devices.

Giving Incident Command The Information They Need
In addition to monitoring each firefighter’s location, and equipment statuses, incident command can also perform robust accountability functions to aid in personnel monitoring. Motorola’s APX Personnel Accountability Application roll call function operates via a PTT button press acknowledgment rather than a verbal check-in – and can immediately trigger an alarm if a firefighter does not respond. This eliminates the need for manual reporting and drastically reduces PAR cycle time.

Emergency Medical Services Communications Solutions

Maximize The Golden Hour: Saving Seconds Means Saving Lives
The “Golden Hour” typically refers to the time frame identified by medical and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals as the crucial period in which beginning-of treatment for heart attack and stroke victims should occur for greatest chance of survival. EMS professionals recognize that no matter what the emergency – whether heart attack or stroke or injuries due to accident, fire, street violence and more – every second is invaluable. The ability to arrive on scene quickly and immediately establish a bidirectional exchange of information between the incident scene, doctors and the hospital emergency department is critical in saving lives.

Safer, More Effective Response Saves Lives
Motorola supports EMS with powerful solutions that provide the entire emergency medical team with real-time, actionable intelligence. Their innovative, highly reliable networks and devices are purpose-built to deliver EMS-centric solutions, empowering emergency medical teams to save lives under the most difficult, pressure ridden, life-and-death situations.
