Do You Need Signal Boosters? Casselberry ERRCS Testing Can Tell You

Safety in your building, like the break room vending machine, is not optional. Find out if you have an adequate communication system set up by having our Casselberry ERRCS testing team take a look.

Your building’s Emergency Responder Radio Communication System, or ERRCS, is a vital part of your Fire & Life Safety plan. In the case of an emergency, first responders need to be able to communicate with each other to effectively vacate the building and extinguish any fires. How can you be sure your system is set up and working properly? Simple. Have our Casselberry ERRCS testing team evaluate your system. 

While you’re waiting for your consultation appointment with our DynaFire technicians, you can read on to learn more about what an ERRCS is and why we are the most qualified team to handle yours.

Do All Buildings Need An ERRCS?

Generally, the larger the building, the more likely it is that it will need a professionally-installed ERRCS. If your building is three or more stories tall with an area of 50,000 square feet or more, you generally need to have a robust communication system for emergency purposes. 

Other buildings that need ERRCS are those with underground parking or low-emissivity (low-E) glass. Low-E glass, although great for sustainability, can negatively impact cell signal strength. 

Is A BDA The Same As An ERRCS?

Great question. A BDA or Bi-Directional Amplifier is an important component of an ERRCS. At DynaFire, our FCC GROL-certified team can evaluate your ERRCS system and if needed, install a BDA to help facilitate emergency response communications. 

If you have a BDA in your building, our Casselberry ERRCS testing team can evaluate it to determine if it has an adequate number of signal boosters.

What Are Signal Boosters?

Think of signal boosters like extenders for your Wi-Fi router. Your modem may live in your living room but to get a strong signal in your home office, you may need to boost the signal with a Wi-Fi extender. This signal booster grabs the Wi-Fi signal from your modem and bounces it to your office so that it can be picked up by your computer or cell phone. 

Similarly, BDA signal boosters are a series of amplifiers strategically placed throughout your building that help the two-way radio signals get to one another through thick concrete, elevator shafts, and glass.

Who Can Do ERRCS Testing?

Emergency communications is a federally regulated area, so to comply with regulations, your technician must hold an FCC General Radiotelephone Operator License or GROL. All of our BDA specialists at DynaFire are GROL-licensed so they can install, adjust, and repair your ERRCS.

How Often Should ERRCS Be Tested?

Once your system has been installed and tested (by our qualified Casselberry ERRCS testing technicians, of course), you must have it tested every year. This ensures that in case of an emergency, everything is working properly and your employees are the safest they can be.
