Newbridge Wireless LLC specializes in maintaining the reliability of emergency communication systems with public safety DAS (distributed antenna systems), ensuring that first responders’ radio system’s coverage within buildings is up to code for new and existing structures.
Maintain Coverage for
First Responders' Radio Systems
An emergency DAS is both imperative and now a requirement from The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Fire Code (IFC). Let Newbridge Wireless LLC asses your public safety radio needs and develop solutions to improve systems today.
The Importance of
Public Safety DAS
Imagine you are a building owner and an emergency crisis situation breaks out such as a devastating fire. You have to call 911 and rely on the brave emergency responders to hopefully save your tenets lives, as well as your building. Once the firefighters are inside the building, they rely on their radio systems to communicate with one another in the building, as well as other first responders outside the building. In an emergency situation clear and effective communication is key. They are working against the clock and must work together to save both the potentially trapped victims along with the building by putting the fire out, and hopefully escaping unscathed themselves.
How Newbridge Wireless
Improves Emergency Communication
But what if their communication breaks down? They are deep inside the burning building and they don’t get radio coverage. What if there is an injury and the first responders need back up – but their radios are ineffective to contact anyone for help? Someone will have to leave to go find help, wasting crucial time to be able to get out of the building safely. When communication breaks down lives are lost, and mistakes are made. How do we prevent this situation from happening? The installation of an emergency communication system. A public safety DAS can boost first responders radio system’s signals and enable them to maintain communication in the crisis situation. Our radio communication solutions allow the first responders to effectively do their job with a much more efficient response and with much higher rates of success.

When Do You Need A
Public Safety DAS?
There are a variety of emergency situations that can occur that would need first responder response with high performing radio coverage in a buildings. Crisis situations include but are not limited to fires, medical emergencies, security threats, or natural disasters. These are all crucial potential life or death situations where it’s imperative you supply first responders with as much help as you can provide for them to be able to succeed.
New building construction in particular can make for poor signals in first responders radio systems, not allowing them to reliably communicate with other emergency personnel inside or outside of the building. Areas such as elevators, garages, basements, and stairwells have even higher possibilities of being vulnerable spots, and detrimental in providing a strong signal strength. A Public Safety DAS can absolutely make all the difference in these life-threatening scenarios and enable a positive outcome. There are a variety of ways to go about the installation of a distributed antenna system for your building, and deciding when the right time to implement. Effectively you can plan the installation in tandem with the building design and construction to ensure the proper coverage. But during and post building construction are also possible times to instal, because you have a different understanding of the needed coverage or where radio coverage signals could be weaker. Regardless, Newbridge Wireless LLC is an industry leader in emergency communication systems and specializes in all the necessary steps for effective signal testing followed by proper install and maintenance of the public safety DAS. When it comes to maintaining first responder radio communication systems, Newbridge Wireless is here to help.
The tragic event of 9/11 unfortunately showed us what can happen when emergency responder’s in-building radio system coverage is not sufficient, proving unsuccessful communication in a dire situation. The heroic firefighters were trapped in the towers without any way to communicate with their team members their locations or that they needed help. Since that tragic event Public Safety DAS requirements and regulations have been adopted on the local, state and national level to ensure that first responder radio coverage, including law enforcement, fire, EMS and government employees – have dependable radio coverage in the event of an emergency.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Fire Code (IFC) have new mandates requiring 700MHz and 800MHz radio coverage for modes of emergency communication in all buildings. The level of in-building coverage for first responders isn’t a convince anymore it is a requirement. Local jurisdictions have varied requirements for coverage, but Newbridge Wireless provides a full range of services to ensure our customers are compliant with jurisdictional Public Safety Radio codes and ordinances. We specialize in NFPA and IFC compliant solutions.
