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 tenants’ 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.
Public safety DAS radio communication systems are imperative to the safety of your building and first responders. For public safety DAS services you can rely on, look to ATG. Contact our technology team online today or call us at 301-330-6260.

Understanding Industry Compliance Standards
Our team has years of experience helping facility managers navigate the complexities of bringing distributed antenna systems up to industry regulation to ensure compliance.
There are many reasons why it is crucial to make sure that the DAS you deploy for your public safety bands is industry-compliant. For starters, you must regard the safety of inhabitants as a top priority. Secondly, a failure to comply with industry regulations may result in costly fines or exposure to litigation, and it could even shut down your operations.
However, compliance standards are set at a local jurisdictional level. As such, you will need to consult with your ATG representative to find out more about your specific requirements.
NFPA 72 vs. IFC
The most common standards adopted by local authorities today are NFPA 72 and IFC. While there are granular differences, both sets of guidelines follow a similar set of standards:
- NFPA requires 99% coverage in areas listed as being of “vital importance”
- Must be housed in NEMA-4 compliant enclosures
- Minimum signal strength of -95 dB
- 24 hours’ worth of battery backup for DAS equipment
- Antenna isolation 15 dB higher than the gain of the amplifier
- Two-hour fire rating for connecting cables
