“In the Community”

As part of Fonterra’s manufacturing sites to support their local communities through a wide variety of social initiatives.

Aftrer a powerpoint presentation on Northland Search and Rescue, the Northland Fonterra management team decided to support Northland Search and Rescue group in the form of SIX new Icom F50v VHF waterproof portable radios complete with waterproof speaker microphones.

These radios have already proven themselves in the short time with deployment on two operations in extreme conditions.

The first was providing safety and an emergency response if required in very wet & cold conditions for the cape Brett challenge.
More recently, the radios were deployed on a SAR callout for a missing pig hunter in the Karatu area in the Bay of Islands. During both of these operations, the radios proved themselves in constant rain and wind.

These radios have exceeded all expectations with to date being deployed on two SAR operations, one safety emergency responce & several training events.
