Hytera, Voceon Donate 50 Radios to Houston Area Search Team
Tuesday, September 26, 2017 | Comments

Hytera America and Voceon Digital Radio Communications provided 50 donated digital radios and eight six-bank chargers to the Willow Meadows Search Team to help aid the search-and-rescue operations in the Houston area.

“CERT Willow Meadows was so grateful to Hytera America and Voceon Digital Radio Communications for their generous donation of 50 digital radios to assist us in the Harvey flood relief effort in southwest Houston,” said Willow Meadows Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Founder Holly Davies.“ Their thoughtfulness allowed us to communicate with those to facilitate cleanup and recovery for impacted families throughout the area at a time when cellular and landline operations were overwhelmed or not functional. We are so glad to know that in the event of further emergencies, we will already be ready and ahead of the game on the communications front.”

The companies have donated about $17,000 worth of equipment to local search-and-rescue operations since Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area. Hytera and Voceon are also working together to identify other rescue groups in need of reliable digital radio communications during the recovery efforts.

The companies are also offering a 40 percent discount off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price as a trade-in credit for any organization that purchases new two-way digital radios, including those groups whose two-way radio equipment was water damaged because of the overwhelming flooding that hit the Houston area after Hurricane Harvey. Special financing is also available to all companies and organizations. Rental radios will be available at no charge for groups opting to use until their new Hytera radios are in.
