California ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

California ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by, an ERRC System Specialist. Many California jurisdictions now require NFP or IFC-compliant public safety radio coverage as a prerequisite for getting an occupancy permit. However, Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) or public safety signal booster and distributed antenna system (DAS) requirements vary from region to region nationwide across United States.

California is known for having some of the more stringent rules and regulations. This is also true for Emergency Responder Radio Coverage. The rules and the regulations can change from county to county or even from city to city within California. However, some of the regulations do have a bit of a standard. It is encouraged that each radio user contacts their local branch to find the specific rules and regulations pertaining to ERRC.

Radio and Antennas must be in accordance with CFC 907.2.12.2. Additionally, coverage should adhere to NFPA 72 Chapter 24.5.1. Please note that buildings which have radios and communications which do not require boosters to the signal are exempt from certain rules and regulations. Again, check with your local branch for clarification.

Generally, all communications must:

  • Have a bidirectional amplifier (BDA).
  • Have multiple radiating antenna cables (leaky coaxial cables).
  • Provide all documented installation permits upon request.
  • Must be installed by a C-10 or C-7 California Electrically licensed contractor.
  • The system can have a maximum output as in compliance with FCC regulations.
  • Function on a VHF Hi-band (136-178 MHz).

California ERRC does not allow for system to combine the functionality of the system with cellular telephone signal enhancements, Wi-fi systems, pager systems, or medical telemetry systems. All systems must have a secondary power source.

California has requirements for existing buildings to upgrade by adding a public safety DAS or signal booster system if public safety radio signals coverage does not meet required density. Please note that in-building California public safety radio coverage requirements can vary greatly based on Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Local AHJ regulations are based on ordinances from several organizations including National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), International Building Code (IBC), International Fire Code (IFC) and International Code Council (ICC). Please contact us for exact requirements based on research within your California state's county and city rules and regulations. We can provide the building owner a grid test and design. We can also review the current ERRC system if already installed, and make adjustments if needed. If necessary, we can install a new ERRC system to meet currently required criterias and achieve building certificate of occupancy approval and issuance.
