Iowa ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Iowa 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.
Iowa utilizes the Project 25 Phase II system for emergency response radio signal systems. The state maintains an 800 MHz format, but also manages VHF and UHF systems statewide. Iowa houses Inoperable Communications System Board ISBICS within their system for use with EMS, Fire, and Law Enforcement on their shared communication trunked system and works to maintain all FCC rules and regulations regarding nationwide ERRC rules.
In accordance with FCC rules and regulations for ERRC in Iowa, the state maintains strict regulations regarding building size and the need for emergency response systems. Any building three stories or taller or buildings one or two stories with a size of 50,000 square feet or more must house its own ERRC system for safety and security for all within. Other requirements include, but are not limited to:

Iowa 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 Iowa 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 Iowa 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 Iowa.
