7 fully integrated PodRunner® Command-RunnersⓇ custom built for Cooper University Hospital’s Southern Regional MCC to operate as independent communications hubs for emergency response.

When Hurricane Sandy blew through New Jersey in October of 2012, it’s destructive winds and floods knocked out both power and communication systems. A significant number of cell and radio towers were either damaged or without transmission power leaving emergency responders without the ability to communicate with dispatch, hospitals, and outside assisting agencies. As a result, HAM radios with volunteer operators have been integrated into the emergency management plan.

These PodRunner® Command-RunnersⓇ are designed to custom specifications with the ability to operate independently of the power grid allowing HAM radio operators to strategically communicate between each other, the hospitals and external agencies.

The PodRunner® Command-RunnerⓇ alleviated the need for expensive/bulky communications trailers which would have difficulty navigating debris covered or flooded roads and allows operators to set up communications indoors away from the elements.
