South Dakota ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

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

South Dakota ERRC is under the authority of SDCL Chapters 1-13 of the BIT (Bureau of Information & Technology). The SDCL is responsible for the protocols of all ERRC systems within the state. Due to the rural nature of most of the state, in addition to FCC codes and SDCL guidelines, it is strongly recommended that signal amplifiers (if not mandated) be used in order to retain functionality with the VHF-Highband and UHF frequencies.

ERRC systems must allow for communication with 90% of the state. Roaming is allowed between sites and networks. Backup systems are mandated (per a 2006 ruling) and should be planned and appropriate documentation submitted prior to installation of the ERRC system.

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

ERRCs for South Dakota should:

  • Use a Duplex (repeated channel) and transmit at least 30 miles.
  • Consist of a local repeater or amplification.
  • Have a low speed data system for mobile subsystems with a 9600bps.

Systems should also have compatibility with the statewide emergency trucking system. This system runs on a Motorola Type II Smartzone type with a APCO-25 Common Air Interface.

South Dakota 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 South Dakota 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 South Dakota 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 South Dakota.
