SHENZHEN, China--1 Aug--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

A hydroelectric power station dam under construction in southeastern Laos collapsed on the evening of July 23rd. The collapse resulted in hundreds of people missing, about 6,600 people homeless, and nearly 3,000 people still "waiting for rescue". The current bad weather and continuously heavy rains have destroyed most of road traffic facilities. However, the rescuers are still trying their best in extremely difficult conditions.

After the accident, several civilian volunteering organizations planning to go to Laos for humanitarian mission contacted Hytera, asking for PMR communications support. Hytera responded immediately and developed an emergency communication plan in short time. As of 24:00 Beijing time on July 26th, Hytera Laos branch and local distributors had well prepared necessary communication equipment. The local technical engineers from the overseas customer service department were in 24-hour standby in order to provide the first-minute support once needed.

At 19:00 Beijing time on July 27th, Hytera received the message from the Blue Sky Rescue ("BSR"), a China based non-governmental humanitarian organization, that its command center could not reach rescuers in time because of weak communication signal. Considering the complex environment, the command center worried about the rescuers' safety. The command center hoped Hytera could solve the communication problem as fast as possible.

After communicating BSR's needs in detail, Hytera technical team customized an emergency communication solution and transported the equipment to the destination in the shortest possible time.

Hytera, a leading global provider of innovative Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) communications solutions, knows the importance and the irreplaceable role of PMR communication in an emergency rescue. In the past years, Hytera has supported BSR in several rescues, such as the Nepal earthquake, the Myanmar flood, and the Guangming landslide. Hytera will continue to pay attention to the disaster in Laos and provide supports in the first moment.
