Public Safety

RSS has exceptional expertise in the design, implementation, and commissioning of Public Safety Systems. There are two common terms for these systems. 1. Emergency Responder Radio Communication Systems (ERRCS), and 2. Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement System (ERCES). An ERRCS emphasizes the system’s role in facilitating radio communication for emergency responders. It is sometimes preferred in jurisdictions or documents that want to stress the importance of radio communication in emergencies. An ERCES highlights the system’s role in enhancing the general communication capabilities for emergency responders, encompassing more than just radio signals. It’s a slightly broader term. In public safety and communications, many acronyms and phrases can be identical or overlapping, therefore always be clear, especially when discussing technical specifications or regulatory compliance.

With an in-depth understanding of the crucial role these systems play in emergency communications, we specialize in providing dependable and robust communication solutions. RSS has a comprehensive understanding of the intricate web of Federal, State, City, and County fire and life safety regulations. It is second nature for us to navigate these complex regulatory frameworks, ensuring that our Public Safety deployments adhere to all pertinent codes and standards, thereby facilitating seamless communication in critical emergency situations.

In the interest of providing some context, a Public Safety System is a wireless communications deployment that is used by first responders and emergency services personnel, such as police, fire, emergency medical, homeland security, and disaster response agencies (Federal, State, Local, and so on), to enable responder communications in response to incidents or situations that put people or property in danger. These agencies include police, fire, emergency medical, and homeland security.

These types of solutions must satisfy the criteria for emergency responder radio coverage established by the State Fire Code. Every Public Safety Solution must also meet the requirements of the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), any city and/or county requirements for Public Safety Radio Systems (which must be confirmed and updated throughout the duration of the project), and the Federal Standards outlined by the IFC (International Fire Code) and NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). In a given jurisdiction, the AHJ is the regulating body or regulatory organization responsible for enforcing fire and life safety codes and standards.

The requirements, procedures, and involvement of the AHJ can vary by state and municipality. RSS works closely and diligently with the local AHJ throughout the entire process (including compliance assessment, documentation preparation, permit application submission, review and approval process, site inspection, and permit issuance) to ensure compliance with local regulations and to address any questions or concerns that may arise. By adhering to the AHJ’s approval and permit requirements, the Public Safety System can be implemented in accordance with the applicable fire and life safety codes, thereby improving the communication capabilities of emergency responders.
