The modern Fire Alarm system plays an extremely critical role in the survivability of your facility and your occupants. Originally designed as just a means of notification for the local Fire Brigade, it has grown to become a highly advanced digital system that interacts with a vast majority of the other systems and features within your building. As we strive to make buildings smarter and safer, the fire alarm system and its role, has had to continually evolve to meet those needs.

When first responders are dispatched to an emergency, a critical need is the ability to communicate.
A survey done in 2017 shows that 98.5 percent of first responders reported dead spots in buildings, and over half of the first responders surveyed experienced in-building communications failure in emergencies. BDA/DAS systems can eliminate that failure and ensure communications remain functional during emergencies.
Florida Fire Code for Public Safety Two-Way Radios
NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, 2013 Edition requires that for buildings with zero to poor public safety radio signals have a radio enhancement (BDA-DAS) system installed to boost signals to ensure emergency radio communications. This system should ensure coverage for both Fire and Police personnel.
If you own or manage a high-rise building in Florida, you should be familiar with Florida Statute 633.202.
Existing high-rise buildings are required to have completed a radio signal strength survey.
Existing high-rise buildings have until January 1, 2022, to improve the signal levels to meet AHJ requirements.
Apartment buildings are not required to comply until January 1, 2025, but they are required to apply for the appropriate permit by December 31, 2022.
The coverage requirements include:
99% coverage in critical areas (emergency command centers, fire pump rooms, exit stairs & passageways, elevator lobbies, standpipe cabinets, and valve locations); and 90% coverage in general building areas.
If you need a survey or possibly a required system, we would be happy to discuss with you and lay out a plan of action.
