What search & rescue Professionals Are Saying

The LiberatorMAX is the perfect communication system for search & rescue teams

Setcom’s wireless full-duplex headsets are ideal for clear, constant on-scene communications. With the help of Setcom, communication will no longer be an obstacle when delivering real-time, life-dependent messages between SAR team members.
Ground Search and Rescue Crew
One of the most crucial applications for improved verbal interaction on a SAR scene is communications between the officer in charge of leading the team in front and the firefighter who is close behind searching for the missing person. Officers must have a clear understanding of the search area to ensure that they are relaying critical messages and keeping their crew safe and alert for those in need of help. Often times fire crews will employ rope systems to bring someone up to safety, and, in this situation, Setcom’s full-duplex, hands-free communications system is extremely beneficial to be able to wirelessly communicate clearly while also not having to worry about pressing a push-to-talk button to communicate.
Trench Search and Rescue Crew
Trench rescue operations are one of the most intricate and hazardous SAR operations to carry out. Clear communications are an important part of the response procedure. Rescuers must be able to assess and translate how the soil has impacted the victim trapped at the trench site to other members of the team. It’s even more critical for the rescuer in the trench with the victim to effectively communicate with other rescuers tasked with monitoring the soil piles, placing ground pads near the trench edges, and positioning the ladder to get everyone out safely. Setcom’s systems go beyond the scope of typical wireless headsets. Our wireless, hands-free, full duplex headsets allow your team to safely work and effectively communicate with all SAR personnel increasing the potential for success.
