Keeping people safe is a top priority for first responders, whether they’re arriving at a public or a private business. No matter what type of property you manage, you should be prepared for an emergency of any kind. One way is by installing a public safety distributed antenna system (DAS) throughout your building. It is important to understand how public safety DAS systems work and what is required to keep them operating.
The main difference between a public safety DAS and a cellular DAS is that a public safety DAS boosts radio signals while a cellular DAS boosts cell signals. When you install a cellular DAS in your building, you should include an emergency responder radio coverage system (ERRCS). First responders typically use two-way radios to keep in contact, and you can improve their communications—and the safety of the people inside your building—by installing a public safety DAS.
To have public safety DAS installed in your building, a team of professionals will survey your property and design a system that will provide your building or property with optimum coverage. As with passive DAS designs, professionals install a series of signal repeaters for public safety DAS.
Emergencies happen when you least expect them. Managing a property is a large responsibility, but you can sleep soundly knowing that you’ve invested in the right insurances and assurances. An EERCS is one of those assurances.
