Safety First: Public Safety Signal Boosters Save Lives

Public Safety Band signal boosters, like the Guardian3 QR, bring crucial two-way radio communications inside buildings to insure first responders have connectivity wherever they go.

For many Americans, the events of 9/11 still elicit strong emotions, but for many young people it’s simply a moment in our country’s recent history.  FirstNet was birthed from the 9/11 tragedy, yet many do not know what it is.

In short, FirstNet is an independent authority within the U.S. Department of Commerce whose mission is to develop, build and operate the nationwide, broadband network that equips first responders to save lives and protect U.S. communities. The organization’s goal is to insure first responders (police, firefighters and EMS) have connectivity wherever they go.  This, of course, is a multi-billion dollar project needing support from local governments and municipalities to adopt the network and infrastructure.  They plan to build towers throughout the nation to support both better coverage and more capacity.  One of my brothers is a police officer, so having a network that can guarantee he can get the backup he needs is an issue that hits close to home.

With the position I have here at SureCall, I understand how radio frequencies work, but I also understand the challenge those frequencies have getting INSIDE buildings.  If you are having a hard time making a call, I guarantee first responders are having a hard time connecting to the outside tower as well.  In fact, in many places throughout the country if a building is larger than 10,000 sq ft it must have 95% of that space accessible to a public safety signal.

SureCall has been painstakingly developing a system that accommodates the vast differences in frequencies used and the large number of existing building codes, while still being affordable and reliable.

We proudly introduce the Guardian3 QR Public Safety Signal Booster. This booster allows the available network provided by FirstNet to be used inside buildings, where first responders need it most.  This is a tremendous step toward insuring that first responders, like my brother, have the support they need from a reliable source whenever they take a step toward danger.
