“When a firefighter has a critically urgent message to give, there is often extremely loud background noise. The many possible sources include an interior fire alarm, a gas powered forcible entry saw, a vehicle siren or a PASS Alarm. The ODG ‘Clear Mission’ speaker microphone suppresses noise so successfully you can be heard in the loudest environments. Now, your Mayday will be heard and the message will be understood. This new firefighting tool will save a life!” Robert Keys, FDNY Battalion Commander (retired)
