Rhode Island ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

Rhode Island ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island ERRC codes and regulations include the Providence plantations and is part of the conjunction for Interoperable communications. The emergency management agency (RIEMA) has specified that the ICC will help in the planning and integration of ERCC codes within Rhode Island.

FCC protocol must be adhered to, for all ERRC systems. Additionally, Rhode Island ERCCs must follow the guidance of OEC and SAFECOM departments. ERCC systems communicate with 11 different sites on 10 channels. This is a 800MHz network, primarily. However, ERRC systems are required to have the capability for 700Mhz frequencies as well which include FirstNet.

ERRC systems for Rhode Island should include:

  • Compatibility to RISCON systems and guidelines.
  • Two-way radio communications.
  • VHF radio frequencies, specifically 155.340 and 155.280 MHz for medical and hospital operations.
  • Duplex satellite/ antenna capabilities.

ERRC systems cannot interfere with the current wireless data networks of Rhode Island. The systems must also take into account the TX and RX frequencies to allow for interoperability between various EMS channels.

Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island.
