The current analogue radios at RSPCA West Hatch had been in operation for over ten years. Whilst they had served the client well, they were subject to interference and poor audio. After extensive testing, Wirefr3 proposed Motorola Solutions SL1600 Mototrbo digital two-way radios. With over fifty handsets being delivered, we also programmed a tailored emergency and lone worker profile providing excellent health and safety benefits for the team. Like many charities, the RSPCA have seen donations drop during the COVID-19 crisis. We provided a long term rental scheme which included all maintenance and battery replacements for the contract duration.
Formed in London in 1824 under the original guise of SPCA – Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Royal patronage followed and in 1837 Queen Victoria gave permission to add the royal in R. The RSPCA have been saving and caring for animals for over two hundred years. Today there are over twenty dedicated animal welfare centres across the United Kingdom. Last year they investigated over 130,000 complaints about animals suffering. Wirefr3 are proud to have been working with the RSPCA for over ten years.
RSPCA – West Hatch
RSPCA West hatch has been serving the South West since 1963 and has over fifty staff members and volunteers. The centre is split into two sections, Animal & Wildlife Centres. Despite the restrictions, in 2020 they rehomed sixty-three dogs, one hundred and fifty one cats and over thirty farm animals.
Split across the two centres, the Mototrbo digital two-way radios play a vital role in day-to-day operations and are a vital tool across the fifty-acre site.
