The Kilgore College Fire Academy is pleased to announce that Dailey-Wells has donated $19,539 worth of communications equipment to the program.
New equipment donated to the KCFA will provide enough radios for each student and instructor to have his/her own radio for training purposes.
“This will allow everyone participating in scenarios to have the ability to communicate with the incident commander in the event of an emergency situation and meet the NFPA requirement to provide for a safer fire training ground,” said Mike Simmons, director of the KCFA. “This will also make our live fire training safer and much more realistic.”
The KCFA has also purchased four P-25 compliant radios that will allow students and instructors to communicate directly with fire departments for training.
Dailey-Wells is a leading supplier of communication systems and equipment for public safety, federal, utility, commercial and transportation markets.
