Cat phones have been perfectly designed to withstand the demands of Firefighters’ challenging line of work. All our phones are tested to—and surpass—extreme rugged standards to achieve their IP68/9 and MIL SPECH ratings, including repeated drop testing onto every side and corner from 6ft, rigorous dust and waterproof testing and are even washable with soaps and disinfectants.

Why Cat phones:

  • Pocket-sized helping Firefighters find new ways to improve efficiency
  • Class-leading rugged protection, making Cat phones ideal in the field
  • Waterproof for the wet conditions of the job
  • Touchscreen works with gloves and wet fingers
  • Android 11 to support latest security patches
  • In rare breakage events, have confidence in our comprehensive warranty
  • All-day battery life for long shifts

A Cat phone is so much more than just a smartphone. In addition to being shock-, water- and dust-proof, reducing the likelihood of it sustaining damage and with it the costs and inconvenience associated with repair or replacement.

"A regular phone that you might see on the market today is not going to last in the harsh environment that I work in. The Cat phone is waterproof, shockproof, drop-proof."

Barry Brown, Career & Volunteer firefighter
