Why Emergency Radio Communication Enhancement Systems (ERCES)?

In an emergency, we depend on First Responders to mitigate the problem and help survivors. Buildings can weaken the radio signals that First Responders rely on to orchestrate emergency responses, evacuations, and other life-saving protocols.

Codes require an approved level of radio coverage in a building, which can be achieved by enhancing the in-building public radio frequency signal coverage with an ERCES, which comprises a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) / signal booster and distributed antenna system (DAS). But not all key stakeholders know about the code requirements, and those who don’t are putting first responders at risk when buildings are not outfitted with proper radio frequency signal coverage.

The safety of our first responders and building inhabitants is of the utmost importance. Codes are in place requiring an approved level of radio coverage in a building, which can be achieved by enhancing the in-building public radio frequency signal coverage with an ERCES comprising a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) / signal booster and distributed antenna system (DAS). Unfortunately, not all key stakeholders know about the code requirements and those who don’t are putting first responders at risk when buildings are not outfitted with proper radio frequency signal coverage.

In this whitepaper, you will learn:

  • Drivers of poor in-building radio-frequency coverage
  • The codes and standards requiring an approved level of radio coverage in buildings
  • The impact this issue has on building owners, AHJs, Architects, Engineers and Contractors
