Now there is a single low cost alternative! It's called a Vehicle Command System or just VCS for short. A VCS system connects directly to your vehicle radio to provide extended communications of up to 1100 feet from the vehicle WITH NO PORTABLE RADIO REQUIRED! A single NFPA and OSHA compliant headset provides direct wireless digital communications through your existing mobile radio to provide personal communications with the power of a mobile! No FCC licensing is required and the VCS is affordable!
If you already have a Firecom vehicle intercom system, you can add the VCS for just $795. You can do the installation yourself with no technician required! If you don't have a vehicle intercom system, you can get a vehicle interface, headset, and controller for just $1,095 complete! Additional information is available at www.info4u.us/VCS.pdf.
If you are still working on your 2010 AFG application, you may want to include the VHS as an accessory to your mobiles. It is classed as a communications device, and it definitely is safety related! By the way, if you would like budgetary pricing for other available products qualifying for AFG funding, please see www.info4u.us/afg2010gp.pdf. You'll be glad you did!
