Illinois ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

Illinois ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Illinois 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.

Illinois state regulations include area wide communications across all agencies utilizing the Phase 25 Phase II. UHF portables are still utilized in some areas and many FCC licenses have been canceled for districts utilizing SC21 systems for everyday communications. Illinois' previous system was a 453 MHz but is in the process of converting to Starcom21 with talkgroups ranging from frequencies 1400 to 33800.

Regulations regarding radio communications in the state of Illinois can be found in the state police radio act, 20 ILCS 2615. However, general statewide regulations include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital Voice and Data Transmissions are Prohibited on National and State Levels on Frequencies Apart from 700 MHz Approved Channels.

Illinois 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 Illinois 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 Illinois 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 Illinois.
