Kentucky ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
Kentucky ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Kentucky 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.
Kentucky’s ERRC falls into the SERC (State Emergency Response Commission). In the state, it is known as the Kentucky Emergency Response Commission or KERC. Under Kentucky code 39A.050 section 2, it specifically addresses the need to "develop, administer, and maintain statewide comprehensive management program for the Commonwealth". As such, emergency buildings and those buildings which fall within the FCC regulations concerning signal transmissions and radio frequencies should take note of the requirements for towers, boosters, antennas, and radio systems.

Public safety DAS or signal booster installation in Kentucky available, if required.
Per Kentucky code, the emergency radio response must be maintained 24 hours a day with communication relays to the public. Cellular towers and antennas, according to statue 100.986 and other similar statues, must:
- Adhere to the regulations of the FCC.
- Cannot interfere with the environment with the frequencies.
- Have a placement plan given to the planning commission.
- Transmit on a common frequency to allow for inter communication between cellular devices.
As much of Kentucky has rural areas, some locations will require the use of signal enhancement devices. These devices must be installed by a licensed professional and such device must meet the FCC regulations pertaining to commercial grade cellular boosters. Buildings with over 50,000 square feet are required by the FCC to have operational towers for ERRC with an effectiveness percentage of roughly 85-90%.
Kentucky 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 Kentucky 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 Kentucky 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 Kentucky.
