In This Issue

Dear FireRescue1 Member,

Despite advancing technology, fire department communication can resemble a "Flintstones" cartoon. You remember, they'd talk to a bird and open its cage for it to fly to the recipient and repeat the message. And if you are relying on something slightly more modern than a parrot, who can blame you? Your department may fall in a rural area. Or, it may fall in an area bereft with financial woes.

Either way, modern communication can seem light years away. In this edition of our eSupplement series, we show that it is closer than you may think. We offer two articles on how to dramatically boost communication capabilities for both rural and budget-conscious fire departments. We also look at the role 4G is playing in fire communication.
