Clear communications and situational awareness are vital to firefighters’ effectiveness and safety. And a reliable, fully functional intercom system goes a long way in helping you accomplish these goals; an advanced intercom headset system is a necessity on any emergency fire apparatus.
Metro Mobile Communications is a factory direct representative of the David Clark Company, the industry leader in intercom headset systems.
For over 50 years David Clark has manufactured rugged, serviceable, versatile, and cost-effective products – their headsets are proven and ubiquitous throughout the industry.
Each crew members’ headset is connected to a voice-activated intercom system which provides convenient “hands free” communication. This set-up enhances safety by allowing the vehicle operator to communicate while remaining focused on surrounding traffic, and enables the crew to discuss matters in route.
Many agencies purchase fully outfitted fire apparatuses. But fire engine manufacturers’ expertise is not in public safety radio or intercom systems, and they typically subcontract the installation of these systems to a local provider. More often than not, a new fire apparatus will be delivered with a misconfigured intercom system and an underperforming two-way radio. This results in additional costs, frustrations, and significant delay in deploying the new vehicle. Metro Mobile Communications has salvaged many a new rig’s radio intercom system, and put into service a properly functioning system.
Metro Mobile Communications announces a new expanded installation bay! In early 2016 we will be moving to our new facility in Belmont which will accommodate full size fire apparatuses. Contract with us to supply and install your public safety two-way radios, messaging system, and intercom system.

The Series 3800 and 9900 systems can be installed on Fire Apparatus, Ambulances, Rescue Boats, Utility, and Construction vehicles of all types.

Call Metro Mobile today to discuss the best system configuration – wired or wireless – for your particular application.
The David Clark Series 3800 Vehicle Intercom System is an extremely versatile "workhorse," able to accommodate most vehicle and system design requirements. This intercom system has the capability to connect to one or more mobile radios, allowing all personnel to listen to the radio, as well as the ability for selected stations to transmit over the radio. The Series 3800 System is currently in use by more than 900 fire and rescue agencies in the U.S.
David Clark’s new Series 9900 Wireless Intercom System allows fire personnel to move about freely and easily without being tethered to a headset station. This means up to 300 feet of unfettered range, a significant improvement over a 10-15 ft. wired system. So a fireman with a bird’s eye view atop the ladder can easily relay information about the fire to the battalion chief on the ground for a more effective response. And when the firetruck is backing up, another set of eyes behind the truck can give the “OK” when the coast is clear, improving safety. And personnel on a rescue boat can communicate from anywhere on the vessel, improving coordination of rescue efforts. Many existing David Clark systems, including the Series 3800, can be upgraded to the 9900 system. Call Metro Mobile Communications today to find out how you can improve safety by going wireless.
