Utilities such as electricity, water and sewage are all necessary public services. Workers in these industries must strive to prevent issues and respond quickly to outages.
A key part of this is coordinating your response between different employees, locations and vehicles. Across the utilities field, two-way radios are used to communicate during repairs, increase daily productivity and ensure worker safety.
GCS provides digital two-way radio systems designed to solve unique problems and help keep private and public utilities operational.
Power and gas outages, water line breaks, sewage backups and trash delays can make people’s lives harder and cost utilities companies money. Effective communication can help keep issues to a minimum and allow you to focus on providing much needed services.
Digital two-way radios are the ideal communication tools for companies with multiple locations, frequent travel, long hours, numerous workers, tough working conditions and loud work environments.
GCS has two-way radio options with long-lasting batteries, helpful accessories, extended range and multiple channels to help make tasks easy and emergencies manageable.

The key to increasing response time to these issues is knowing when severe weather is headed for your area.
GCS can help you increase safety and efficiency with NOAA Weather Radio SAME weather alerts on your portable two-way radios. The average tornado warning only comes 15 minutes in advance, meaning that your staff needs to get alerts as quickly as possible whether they’re on a job site or at a facility.
Weather events aren’t the only time you’ll need to alert employees quickly. Sometimes you need a way to quickly get a message to an entire facility – this is where wireless mass notification systems come in.
