IEC Telecom Europe is an avid supporter of ADRASEC 08 (Departmental Association of Amateurs Radio in the Service of Civil Security), a non-profit organisation in France, that conducts relief operations, mobilises field workers in disaster-affected areas, and mentors volunteers to help police authorities and public services. IEC Telecom Europe is looking forward to working with the ADRASEC 08 community to ensure reliable connectivity and smooth communications management of rescue and other critical civil safety missions.
Essential connectivity empowers field staff to quickly co-ordinate their first response to disaster and emergency situations even in the most remote areas. This is crucial for the success of missions, ensuring reliable communications even where terrestrial lines are damaged or do not exist. As a member of the UN Global Compact since 2012, one of IEC Telecom’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all wherever they’re located. IEC Telecom is a trusted partner for leading rescue agencies and is committed to providing missions such as those conducted by ADRASEC 08 with enhanced mobility and efficient communication channels.
ADRASEC 08 members use their radio communication skills and experience to assist with the national agenda of the FNRASEC, the Ministry of the Interior, and the Directorate General for Civil Aviation in France. Members, including public service employees, come from the fields of civil safety, radio communications, and aeronautics. IEC Telecom Europe supports ADRASEC 08 in their noble cause and has donated SIM cards from the key satcom operators such as Thuraya, Iridium, and Inmarsat for use in their missions.
IEC Telecom Europe will continue to offer technical expertise in wireless and satcom communications to support ADRASEC 08 missions in seven defense zones as well as those in liaison with the National Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Center.
