Idaho ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
Idaho ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Idaho 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.
Idaho works with a Project 25 Phase 1 system type known as Idaho Cooperative Agencies Wireless Interoperable Network or ICAWIN. Counties are segregated into individual regional talkgroups. Talkgroups are allocated into districts from 1 to 7 including, Panhandle, North Central, Southwest, Central, South Central, Southeastern, and Eastern Idaho. Each district maintains their own frequency, so always check with local institutions to ensure your system is allocated to the correct frequency.
In accordance with FCC regulations, Idaho new construction buildings are not required to have DAS emergency system if the building falls below 50,000 square feet or does not reach three stories tall. Idaho is currently in transition to the ICAWIN 700 MHz system and agencies are allowed to resort to other UHF or VHF signals during this transition period. Additional requirements for the state of Idaho include, but are not limited to:
- Promote Rural Communication Statewide via Trunked Systems.
- No Equipment Operated within 100 km of Canada and United States Borders.
- File for a Waiver in Extreme or Unusual Circumstances.
- Maintain Trunked Systems that Promote Effective Interoperable Communication.
- Systems May Also Require Battery Backup Where Applicable.
Idaho 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 Idaho 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 Idaho 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 Idaho.
