Visitor attractions take many forms, whether the rarefied environment of historic places of worship, natural wonders, destinations or galleries and museums. But what they all share is a duty of care to staff and visitors alike and of course the protection and preservation of the attraction.
The requirement to provide a safe and secure environment free from the threat of anti-social behaviour, petty crime, personal assault and the ability to respond quickly and efficiently to incidents or accidents is of course paramount.
Reducing these risks while managing the efficient flow of visitors, staff and supplies on site poses huge logistical challenges. Essential to the management of risk, response to incidents, implementation of emergency plans and providing a welcoming atmosphere is the ability to report threats, situations and status quickly and efficiently , most especially in the event of a major incident where coordination of emergency services and the safe and fast evacuation of large numbers of people through multiple access points needs to be managed.
Two-way radio provides the most effective means to communicate between cross functional teams reliably and instantly anywhere on site, which is why Kenwood two-way radios and systems feature so prominently at many visitor attractions around the world including CN Tower, Canada, Kunst Historisches, Vienna, Austria, Cango Caves, South Africa, Parc National du Mercantour, France, La Sagrada Familia and Guell Park, Barcelona, Spain, William Wordsworth’s home, Dove Cottage and Liverpool Cathedral, UK.
Typical uses of two-way radio communications in and around visitor attractions include:
- Security of staff and visitors
- Protection of site
