New Tait radios for St John Youth

One of New Zealand’s key youth organizations, St John Youth, was presented with its very own set of Tait portable radios during an official handover event held at the St John Christchurch headquarters this week.

Six Tait TP8100 radios were donated to the program, which offers more than 7,000 six- to 18-year-olds throughout New Zealand leadership opportunities through discovery, adventure and learning.

Christine Prince, Customers and Services Manager, St John, says: “This is the first time we’ve had our own dedicated radios for the Youth program, which is very exciting.

“They’ll mean a big boost in efficiency when it comes to organizing competitions, camps and activities, which often require a huge logistical effort. We’ll be able to use the radios in a range of different ways, and members can get hands-on radio experience as part of their learning.”

Ian McKee, General Manager, Tait Communications, comments: “We’re delighted to donate these radios to St John Youth. The program offers young people the chance to develop first aid, health care, leadership and life skills, and Tait is proud to support this.

“The entire St John organization plays a vital and significant part in our community—and the lives of many people. We’re very pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with its members.”
