Massachusetts ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
Massachusetts ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Massachusetts 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.
The Massachusetts ERRC regulation was introduced in 2009 as part of the building code requirements for the state. Communication focuses on the state building code 780 CMR 915.0. Revisions have been made to the code on a consistent basis, so radio and buildings with antennas and emergency radio response systems are encouraged to check for the latest revision prior to any installation. While the code does address all new buildings, not all new buildings require ERRC, but only those which are vital to maintaining radio communications and those buildings which would otherwise cause a disruption to the radio frequencies of ERRC.

Public safety DAS or signal booster installation in Massachusetts available, if required.
In order to comply with Massachusetts ERRC rules and regulations, it is recommended that buildings with such systems:
- Use a bi-directional amplifier (BDA).
- Measure the inbound and outbound signal strength.
- Operate on a 800MHz band.
A VHF band may be required depending upon where the building is located. However, more often the frequency requires either a 700MHz (narrowband/ broadband) or the 800MHz band. Prior to installation, ensure that your radio system complies with FCC regulations.
Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts.
