West Virginia ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer
West Virginia ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by SignalBooster.com, an ERRC System Specialist. Many West 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.
West Virginia's ERRC laws are under the (WV Code 15-5A-8). The West Virginia State Emergency Response Commission (WVSERC) and Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) office is primarily responsible for the guidelines, rules, and regulations for ERRC systems in West Virginia. FCC rules and regulations must still be adhered to.
EMS and other response units will have UHF as well as VHF frequencies. ERRC systems must allow for communications on these channels. Primarily, the user frequency is 145.730 MHz. Some counties may require compliance with the Virginia Digital Emergency Network (VDEN). All ERRCs must allow for high band and low-speed connections.

West 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 West 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 West 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 West Virginia.
