Do you understand your Emergency Responder Radio Coverage requirements & needs?

Since 9/11, regulations requiring Emergency Responder Radio Coverage (ERRC) for building occupancy have become enforceable standards in fire codes. Driven at national, state, and local levels, these requirements are primarily derived from the International Fire Code (IFC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

A recent adoption of the First Net network is helping with national standardization, and is therefore providing Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) with a standard approach to enhancing the ERRC network and implementing IFC 510, NFP 72, and NFP 1221. Adherence to these codes is essential in gaining and maintaining building occupancy in both higher ed and K-12 institutions. A series of steps and possible implementations are needed to meet these AHJ requirements, to hit the minimal standard, and therefore be considered operational for first responders.

Learn how to ensure your institution has adequate signal strength to protect first responders, staff, and students across campus.
