To help improve collaboration efficiency in the search, rescue and evacuation, Hytera donated communications equipment in the first minute to Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI), the Indonesian Red Cross, following a magnitude 7.4 earthquake and a tsunami rocked Central Sulawesi in Indonesia on September 28, 2018, the company said.
