67% of Nevada, or 48 million acres, are public lands. With extensive public involvement, BLM Nevada applies the highest quality information and cutting-edge technology and techniques to protect, use, restore and enhance public lands for current and future generations in support of the state’s multiple-use and sustained yield mandate. BLM Nevada is a longstanding customer of BK Technologies, using its portable communications technology as it implements its Resource Management plans, which are a blueprint for keeping public landscapes safe, healthy, and productive.

Tim Vitou, President of BK Technologies commented, “We’re pleased to continue our work with our longstanding partner, BLM Nevada, as they upgrade their portable communications technology to our BKR 5000. Given the enormous amount of territory BLM Nevada is responsible for maintaining and protecting, it is critical that the agency employs the highest level of dependable communications technology, as provided by our BKR 5000. BLM Nevada has always recognized the importance of utilizing leading edge technology to support its field operations and personnel and we believe their selection of the BKR 5000, as they update their portable communications equipment, speaks to the high quality and reliability of our radios.”

The BKR 5000 comes in three tiers allowing maximum flexibility and customization for the user’s mission-critical needs and has been designed to meet the requirements of today’s tough Public Safety communications environment.
