Maryland ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

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

Maryland operates their emergency radio response communications under the MIEMSS. This branch is responsible for all communications between emergency responders, including EMS, helicopters, hospitals, and law enforcement. ERRC for Maryland dictates that all responder helicopters and aircraft use the SYSCOM system. As a result, there are several towers throughout the state which cater specifically to communications between ground and air. Operation frequency for these towers is 44.74 MHz.

Communication regulations divides the state into 5 regions. Region 1 includes Allegany and Garrett counties, Region 2 is the central region of the state (including Baltimore city), region 3 and 5 are generally considered the EMC channels as they cover most of Baltimore and surrounding areas as well as some of the Washington D.C hospitals and Fredric County. Region 4 is the lower shore. Frequencies for all regions is 800MHz.

Public safety DAS or signal booster installation in Maryland available, if required.

ERRC requirements for Maryland state:

  • Coverage for Emergency channels must operate at 95% of the time.
  • That public safety frequency run at 700MHz. This is different from the Emergency 800MHz required.
  • That systems comply with all FCC and FAA regulations.
  • That systems are compatible with the MIEMSS narrowband conversion which took place in 2014 statewide.

Maryland 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 Maryland 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 Maryland 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 Maryland.
