BK Technologies Receives $1.1 Million Order From National Interagency Fire Center

WEST MELBOURNE, FL, August 18, 2020 – BK Technologies Corporation (NYSE American: BKTI) today announced that its operating subsidiary received an order totaling approximately $1.1 million dollars from the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). The order is for BK’s KNG2-Series Digital P-25 portable radios with related accessories. This order is anticipated to be fulfilled during the third quarter of 2020.

BK President Tim Vitou commented, “As we have for so many years, BK is proud to support NIFC and the professional wildland firefighting community. They have relied upon our products in wildland fire suppression efforts for over two decades; first deploying our E-Series and G-Series analog radios, then our P-25 D-Series radios, and more recently migrating to our KNG2 P-25 digital radios. BK’s extended track record of dependability in harsh and life-threatening conditions has clearly earned the NIFC’s confidence as demonstrated by this recent order.”

BK’s KNG2-Series P25 public safety grade radios have been a cornerstone for tactical communications in the wildland firefighting community for over 10 years. The proven design has been enhanced with the features and functionality needed by firefighters for command and control operations. Ease of use, long battery life, loud clear audio and features such as radio-to-radio in- the-field programming, also known as cloning, makes the KNG2-Series the industry leader in the wildland fire suppression vertical market.
