Pennsylvania ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
Pennsylvania ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Pennsylvania 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.
According to Pennsylvania building codes, all new buildings which are less than 75 feet above, or less than 20 feet below the lowest fire department vehicle access are not required to have ERRC testing. However, any building which more than 75 ft. is above, or 20 ft. below ground level must be equipped with an ERRC system. Existing buildings undergoing any alteration must comply with F-510.3 code (or applicable/similar code depending on region).

ERRC systems must align with NFPA 72 standards, meaning that all systems:
- System must be compatible with VHF handheld communication devices.
- Frequencies should meet 700MHz and 800MHz public safety channels.
- Antennas should be bi-directional.
- No frequencies for cell phones should interfere with common system usage.
- Backup power is required for the system.
- All systems must meet FCC requirements.
ERRC systems for Pennsylvania must have the application, installation, location, inspection, testing, and maintenance performed by a licensed professional. Please note that although the primary focus of the ERRC in Pennsylvania is for the NFPA, the system must also comply with the ERS for the state as well as other local governing codes and regulations.
Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania.
