Florida manufacturing firm RELM Wireless Corp. recently obtained a large-scale, $1.1 million equipment order to supply firefighters in California with communications gear, including KNG-series portable radios, the company announced from its headquarters in West Melbourne.
"We have long supported the mission of firefighters in California and nationwide, and are pleased to be the radio of choice for this requirement,” David Storey, RELM’s president and CEO, said. “For over two decades we have forged a reputation in the firefighting community of reliability and customer service with a bedrock philosophy of listening to and meeting customers' requirements, which we believe favorably differentiates us from our competitors."
Project 25 (P25 or APCO-25) is a standard suite of digital radio communications used by federal, state/province and local public safety organizations in North America to facilitate communication with other agencies and mutual aid response teams during emergencies.
RELM, which has produced two-way radio equipment for nearly 70 years, distributes digital radios in compliance with APCO Project 25 needs. The company markets its products under BK Radio and RELM brand labels.
P25, approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, relies on interoperability among equipment users regardless of multiple manufacturers.
The order is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2016.
