DISTRIBUTED ANTENNA SYSTEM (DAS) FOR EMERGENCY RESPONDER RADIO COVERAGE
EMERGENCY RESPONDER RADIO COVERAGE SYSTEM (ERRCS)
The importance of Emergency Responder Radio Coverage was magnified on September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Center was attacked by terrorists. First responders did not have sufficient and reliable communication within the buildings due to the way buildings are constructed (steel, reinforced concrete, low-E glass, etc.).
The National Fire Protection Association passed an ordinance in 2007 mandating that all buildings are required to provide radio coverage for first responders. The current code can be found in Section 510 of the California Fire Code, and NFPA 1221. The code is meant for new buildings, as well as existing buildings, but may be determined by your local Authority Having Jurisdiction.
As required by code, RedRock has a team of FCC licensed radio testers, design engineers, and integrators focused on Emergency Responder Radio Coverage Systems (ERRCS).
Cellular Enhancement is another form of DAS. This is a luxury or an amenity, and is not code required. If you think your building may need enhancement of Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, or T-Mobile coverage, please contact us for more information.
