Virginia ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

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

Central Virginia, as of 2017, has updated their entire radio system for first responders and other emergency agencies. The old system did not give enough coverage. Those who have older systems may need to update the amplifiers and/or the frequency channels of their system in order to maximize performance. For most, the ERRC systems of Virginia will not be affected as (A) System maintenance would have made such changes and (B) The VHF channels may not have changed for your sector.

ERRCs for the remainder of Virginia must adhere to the FCC regulations, meaning that all new construction which could interfere with public safety communications must have an ERRC system in place. That system should have a bi-directional amplifier/ repeater or an active DAS (Distributed Antenna System) in place.

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

ERRC systems in Virginia should include foll. conditions:

  • Have a 800MHz Communication System.
  • Broadcast to EMS on a frequency of 155.175 Mhz (EMS command may be on another frequency).
  • ERRC systems must avoid use of 10-signals for EMS communication.
  • Data Terminals must be inspected on a regular basis for any ERRC system.
  • ERRC repeaters/ amplifiers must not interfere with the frequency of other ERS frequencies.

Depending upon the county (primarily those areas close to the shore as opposed to those inland), additional regulations may apply. Please contact us for any questions concerning your ERRC system prior to install.

Virginia 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 Virginia 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 Virginia 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 Virginia.
