Firecom Introduces Slotted-Dome Wireless Headset for Improved Situational Awareness Product Image

Firecom, the leading supplier of communication equipment for the fire and rescue industry, today introduced its slotted-dome headset, available as an option on both its wired and wireless headset communication systems.

Standard Firecom headsets provide 24 decibels of noise reduction for both ears, and have built-in speakers in both domes, making them ideal for communicating in noisy and extreme environments.

In Firecom’s slotted- dome design, one dome is outfitted with full noise reduction and communication capabilities. The second dome has no speaker, and slots cut into the dome allow first responders to hear everything happening around them.

For some members of a fire crew, situational awareness is even more important than hearing protection. Research has shown that poor situational awareness is a major factor in accidents caused by human error.

“Emergency communication equipment must meet three conflicting requirements,” said Tim O’Brien, director of sales for Firecom. "Equipment must provide a clear signal, hearing protection, and — in many cases — situational awareness as well. We believe the slotted-dome headset offers a balanced solution to all of these requirements. This design is particularly well-suited to the needs of apparatus drivers and incident commanders.”

The slotted-dome design is the latest in a series of options developed for Firecom’s 50-Series headsets, all of which offer hands-free, full-duplex communication for crews of up to 40 members.

Full-duplex capability is especially important in the fire environment because it allows crew members to speak to and hear each other simultaneously, much like a telephone call.

All Firecom headsets feature comfortable ComLeather ear seals and are covered by a two-year limited warranty, expandable up to five years with the company’s optional ComCare™ service program.

About Firecom Firecom is the leading supplier of headset systems for fire and rescue crews around the world. The company’s intercoms and wired or wireless headsets provide vital hearing protection and clear communication that ensure all crew members can hear and be heard under the most challenging circumstances.

Firecom is a division of Sonetics Corporation, which helps more than half a million customers in 90 countries solve their toughest communication problems.
