Sepura has delivered 50 handheld radios and ancillary equipment to the British International Search and Rescue Team in support of the coordination of search and rescue activities in Japan, following the earthquake and tsunami. The radios will be used in direct mode without TETRA infrastructure and do not require any special training to become operational.

The British team has taken 8 tonnes of specialist rescue equipment with it, including heavy-lifting and cutting equipment to rescue people who are trapped in the debris. Its specialist search and rescue dog team will join the efforts to detect the scent of live casualties trapped under rubble.
