Changes to building codes mean safer work environment for first responders
The importance of reliable communications will become even more imperative as public-safety personnel use data communications to perform their jobs. Imagine being able to see — in real time — a floor-by-floor map of the building where an emergency has occurred, or watch surveillance video when an alarm has been set off. These data communications will give responders more information about emergency situations, enabling the most efficient response. Updates to existing building codes require that first responders be able to communicate via voice inside a building during a crisis. Often, this means installing a Distributed Antenna Solution (DAS) to achieve that in-building coverage. To read more about how national building codes are helping public safety personnel, click here.
