RF Connect brings a unique industry perspective and expertise to the SBC that will enhance our shared mission of providing in-building public safety wireless communications when they are needed most.

RF Connect, a national leader of enterprise wireless solutions, today announced that it has become a member of the Safer Buildings Coalition, an independent, non-profit organization focused on ensuring public safety.

The Safer Buildings Coalition leads in proposing ordinances to support in-building communication capabilities for public safety first responders and the people they serve and protect. It works with stakeholders to propose changes to model fire codes produced by the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) related to public safety communication within buildings. It also drafts model ordinances that may be used by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) to improve in-building communications.

With more than five million commercial building in the United States, First Responders need to be able to communicate with each other from outside and inside buildings as well as with remote command centers during emergency situations.

"We are glad to have RF Connect on board as a member of the Safer Buildings Coalition,” said Executive Director of the Safer Buildings Coalition Chief Alan Perdue (Ret.). “RF Connect brings a unique industry perspective and expertise to the SBC that will enhance our shared mission of providing in-building public safety wireless communications when they are needed most.”

“The mission of the Safer Buildings Coalition to mandate appropriate communication technology to ensure the effectiveness of first responders is a laudable effort and one we support,” stated RF Connect President Leonard A. Kruszewski. “The safety of the public should never be compromised when technology solutions are available to help mitigate the negative consequences of natural and man-made disasters.”
