Communications Solutions for Fire and Emergency Response

Fire and emergency response personnel need to have the confidence that their communications system will work when they are responding to an event. Critical communications systems must deliver uninterrupted coverage and clarity anywhere—high noise environments, dense urban areas, within buildings or remote and rural areas.

Tait has four decades of experience in designing and delivering critical communications solutions to meet the challenging needs that emergency response organizations and workers face.

Future-proof investment

Tait P25 solutions are a future-proof investment because of the network's digital backbone and compliance with the FCC's 12.5 kHz narrow banding requirements. Our P25 solutions can be migrated from analog to digital when budget and needs permit, and then on to future advancements of the technology for the best spectral efficiency.

Safer workers

Tait Communications is known for producing radios that are tough, easy-to-use and deliver excellent audio quality and performance. Even in the loudest environments Tait P25 radios transmit crystal-clear audio by minimizing background noises. Our radios are also designed with MDC1200 capability, industry alarm features and IS options for user safety.

Exceptional usability

From an intentionally firm volume control to prevent accidental bumps and knocks, to dual-shot molding for durability, Tait portable radios are skilfully designed for the challenging environments of emergency responders. The range of different options—custom head colors, dual-heads, hand-held control head and remote installation options—enable users to design the best setup for their needs.

Interoperable and compliant

We ensure that our products meet regulatory compliance standards and interoperability tests, enabling you to upgrade and expand your fleet when you have funds available.

The Department of Homeland Security recommends that agencies - especially those receiving federal grants for interoperable communications - purchase equipment that has passed P25 CAP testing. Our P25 base stations, portables and mobiles have been tested in the P25 compliance assessment program with other leading manufacturers. This also means that a Tait solution will work seamlessly with a state-wide network and other P25 compliant products and networks.

Complete solutions

We take the time to understand your challenges in order to deliver the best solution for your needs. Tait engineers design, deploy and support our communications solutions, and we work with the best technology partners to provide third-party applications that work seamlessly with Tait solutions.

White Paper

Under the Hood: Coverage theory for Public Safety networks - a System Engineer's view

This white paper provides network operators some insight into how a System Engineer can design for network coverage that meets specific requirements. It addresses three basic techniques, which, used individually or in combination, can overcome geographical or urbanization influences, to increase coverage reliability. While this paper is especially relevant for the critical coverage requirements of Public Safety operators, the principles described are equally applicable for other sectors.
