Maine ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
Maine ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Maine 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.
Due to the extreme north location of Maine, proper communication is paramount as extreme weather conditions such as snow can interfere with certain types of communication devices. Maine runs with the Project 25 Phase 1 format for Emergency Radio Signals within a statewide 25 trunked system. All stations are programed in a mobile, portable radio, or control station while repeater and base stations are required to be programed with Rx and Tx Reversed.
Maine follows all FCC regulations regarding Emergency Response Radio Signal and Maine ERRC rules maintain that all buildings over 2 stories tall or that have over 50,000 square feet of interior space have a designated ERRC system. Individual regulations may vary according to region or county of the state, but the FCC rules and regulations for Maine are set as the standard.
Maine's location often contributes to the need for stronger signals and in some of the more remote locations of the state, higher densification may be required in addition to other requirements as follows:
- Narrowband Signal Configurations.
- Minimum 800 MHz System.
- VHF Calling for Shared Networks.
- CONOPS Plan in place.
Maine 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 Maine 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 Maine 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 Maine.
