Thursday February 7, 2019 - 1:00 PM EST - Overview of In-Building Emergency Responder radio Communication Systems: Systems basics, model code requirements and product certification

This presentation will provide an overview of the technologies available to provide enhanced in-building emergency personnel communications that are now required by model building and fire codes. This will include an overview of model IFC and NFPA 1 Fire Code design, installation, testing and performance requirements for these systems. The attendees will also receive an overview on the new UL 2524 Standard that is now available and will be a requirement in the 2021 model codes to certify the operational performance and overall reliability of the various types of equipment installed in the built environment to meet the model fire code requirements. In addition, the presentation will provide details on the transition of UL Listings to the new UL 2524 and how to search on-line to find UL Listings for products meeting the new standard.

Thursday March 21, 2019 - 1:00 PM EST – Understanding the History, Technology, and Enforcement of In-Building Emergency Responder Radio Enhancement Systems

Presented by: Rodger Reiswig, Alan Perdue, & Lynn Nielson Moderated by: Richard Roberts 

With threats to public safety amplified by recent events, the imporatnce of staying focused on moving the needle forward instituting in-building communication platforms cannot be overstated. 

Over the last decade, many U.S. fire jurisdictions have adopted standards for in-building public-safety radio-enhancement systems. These standards are designed to ensure adequate indoor radio coverage for firefighters and other public-safety first responders during emergency response. As locally generated standards arose, jurisdictions gradually abandoned the traditional firefighter building telephone system. 

As with any public safety movement involving multiple stakeholders with different concerns and priorities, advocating for a technologically sound, well regulated, affordable, interoperable and widespread system of wireless, in-building communication systems is very complicated to say the least. New codes regarding the future in-building wireless communications for public safety are constantly being introduced, debated, and modified.
