NEW buildings in Florida have been subject to ERCES requirements in the Florida Fire Prevention Code for some time.

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

All existing & newly constructed high-rise buildings are required to have a Radio Frequency Signal Strength Survey completed by December 31, 2019. “IF” required BDA installation by January 1, 2022. Apartments and Condo’s must have installation of BDA “IF” required by 2025.

All buildings with insufficient in-building radio frequency coverage in critical areas of the building must install a ERCES/BDA before JANUARY 1ST 2022. This provides only a short window to install the ERCES/BDA—including retrofitting into existing buildings—into every building with poor in-building radio coverage. All newly installed BDA systems require licensed certified company (CSS) to annually test the system for proper operation per NFPA 72: 9.22.1 (verify code!)
