An emergency responder radio communications system (ERRCS), also known as a public safety or first responder DAS (Distributed Antenna System), has become a mandate in-building requirement for many municipalities around the country. This network essentially re-transmits fire or police radio frequencies from outside a building, where the signal is presumably stronger, into the building, where it usually is weaker or non-existent.
Guidepost Solutions designs code compliant ERRCSs, understanding the necessity of life safety communications for building occupants and first responders during emergency events. We promote early design of ERRCS systems to ensure that the cost of the associated protected cabling infrastructure is included in the initial scope of work budget. This early design helps to provide the project with a realistic projection of systems cost without the expense of adding this system after construction commences.
Guidepost Solutions has the tools, code understanding, and technology background to provide a code compliant system allowing first responder communication systems to work effectively when needed and keep building occupants safe.
