Don Griffis looks at the features of L3Harris Corporation's new XL Extreme firefighter radio, including improved heat and water exposure ratings, larger buttons and knobs, and smart technology.

Firehouse’s Peter Matthews talks with Don Griffis, L3Harris Corporation's principal product manager about the latest on NFPA 1802 and the new L3Harris XL Extreme portable radio.

NFPA 1802, the standard on firefighter radios, was updated this year based on recommendations from firefighter injury and LODD reports for radio and speaker microphones.

Griffis, with the new XL Extreme radio in-hand, reviews the new features of the high-tech radio, buttons and knobs that are easier for firefighters to use with gloved hands, larger and color-coded displays, and improved safety for high heat, water and drop scenarios.
