Our installation of over two dozen two-way radios now allow the medical clinics to discuss health issues between each other, and to the main hospital and Doctor John. The ambulance now may be dispatched from any location on the Island, saving HOURS of response time in an emergency.

Two-way long range radios now link all three Islands together, so medical matters may be discussed, and patient care given “wireless” to the attending nurses and Doctor.

Two-way radios now allow the Police officials to call the hospital in an emergency, and to allow the Police headquarters talk to the one police car on the Island.

Hand held radios keep the doctor and nurses always in touch, even if out in the field on a call.

The radio system also allows contact to longer range radiotelephone networks, too. No telephone lines and static to worry about! Most of the radio systems are on battery supply and solar panels, in case of no power or, if power, regular power outages.

It has been my honor to set up these radio systems, purchased by Pacific Islands Medical Aid, Inc., and to volunteer my time to oversee this radio project for the residents and medical staff at these remote Islands in the Pacific.
