Challenge: First Responders Need to Be Able to Maintain Constant Communication Throughout a Building in an Emergency Situation

First responders, such as firemen and police officers are who we rely on to help us in an emergency situation. And they rely on their gear, such as their communications devices to keep them safe and to come to our aid as quickly as possible.

In an emergency situation, it is essential that their communication devices continue to transmit in hard-to-reach areas, such as stairwells, elevators, basements, and thick-walled or shielded areas. This almost always requires installing NFP or IFC-compliant public safety and emergency responder radio coverage (ERRC). And many jurisdictions now require it as a prerequisite for getting an occupancy permit.
