On our Facebook page we started a good discussion on where you carry your portable radio.
The question was “where do you carry your portable radio”?
Do you carry it in the radio pocket or do you use a case and strap?
If you use a case and strap do you put it under your jacket or leave it on the outside?
We are following up on that discussion with a study conducted on this very topic by the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department. This is an eye-opening study so please take the time to read it and make your comments here. For those who carry the portable in their radio pocket or on the outside of their jacket with a case and strap we hope that after you read this you change you current practices.
