Lifeguard - the advanced man-down feature

Lifeguard might save your life

How would you get help if something knocked you down when working alone? Who would call help for you? Who would know that you just faced a 'man down' situation?

Your radio can know.

Lifeguard is the advanced man-down feature in TETRA radios from Airbus.

Lifeguard monitors your radio. Lifeguard will notice

  • if your radio stops moving, or
  • if your radio stays horizontal too long.

When it notices this, you will first get a “local alert”. The radio starts to vibrate and make a sound. The display starts blinking too, so you will not miss this alert. If you are fine, you just ok the alert.

If you don’t respond, the radio will automatically make an emergency call so you will get help. Your GPS coordinates are included so you can be located faster.

Thanks to Lifeguard, your radio will also make an alerting sound regularly. The sound can guide the rescue team towards you.

Where are you?

Knowing where your fellow officers are can be vital. They could be quite near, but if you are in a forest or city, they might as well be invisible. In some situation, getting this information quickly can be a matter of life or death. Right on your radio's display.

Night Vision

Use your Airbus TETRA radio in the dark with Night Vision feature. 

Night Vision has a safety aspect – someone looking at a bright screen will take time to adapt their eyes when they look up. In that time, they could be put in danger or fail to notice some criminal activity.
