Not-for-profit group Surf Life Saving Tasmania is the state’s major water safety and surf rescue service provider. It performs the critical role of emergency rescue services to the Tasmanian coastline, comprising of 24 volunteer surf lifesaving clubs and over 2200 active surf lifesavers and lifeguards.
Surf Life Saving Tasmania relies on an ICOM digital radio network to coordinate operations and keep their team informed of critical activity. Whilst clear and efficient voice communications between dispatchers and users is important, so is the ability to instantly see where any resource or patrol is at any time. For these reasons, RediTALK-Flex, Omnitronics’ radio agnostic feature rich dispatch solution, was chosen to enhance the existing ICOM system and help provide better response times and ultimately improve the safety of the public.
