DAS For Public Safety
Reliable wireless connectivity is mandatory for public safety. In the case of an emergency, it is crucial that all buildings support wireless communication for first responders, such as the police and the fire department. National and international fire codes now mandate that all new and existing buildings have full wireless coverage indoors. Additionally, each municipality also requires a unique configuration for public safety radio.
Innovative Public Safety System goes beyond the code to eliminate the near-far effect and provide the world’s most reliable communication system. Providing seamless communication imperative to the safety of first responders and venue occupants. Proper end-to-end solutions are compliant with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Fire Code (IFC), yet can be customized easily to meet the various requirements of different jurisdictions.
HALO has extensive experience working with venues and municipalities empowering mission-critical communication requirements.
The Public Safety DAS Solution
In an emergency situation maintaining communication throughout a property is critical for first responders. When responding to a fire, medical emergency or domestic threat, first responders must have functioning radios. Communication devices must be able to transmit in hard-to-reach areas including basements, elevators, stairwells or shielded area. Newly-built LEED-certified buildings with low-E glass often have signal coverage due to signal attenuation caused by low-E glass.
In-building coverage for first responders is a requirement, not an amenity. Majority of cities and countries across the US have added local ordinances and codes making in-building coverage for first responders required. The regulations state that every building must meet a minimum level of first responder communication reliability as a condition for occupancy. Building owners or operators must test their buildings and, if needed, install a system to ensure it is up to code.
