Colorado ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
Colorado ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Colorado 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.
Colorado specifies that schools which wish to have funding from the SAFER program adhere to SB18-158. This details the equipment, technology, as well as the testing of systems required for school ERRC. Regarding the state’s ERRC procedures, most of the rules and regulations for emergency response fall within these standards.
Coverage is to fall within the scope of Fire Code 2012ED, NFPA 72, and covered systems are to provide documentation of IFC compliance. Ensuring that systems are up to code, inspectors use FCC 47 CFR Part 90.219. New buildings all must have emergency radio response systems. The only exceptions are those buildings which were part of the ERRC before such regulations and rules were put into place.

Colorado 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 Colorado 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 Colorado 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.
We perform site survey, and ensure public safety bands coverage by doing cellular and public safety grid test. Then, if ERRC grid test shows less coverage than the required threshold, we can install ERRCS (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System) such as passive or active DAS (Distributed Antenna System) in following Counties of Colorado.
