Public Safety

Pando Telecom provides code-compliant Public Safety DAS.

During 9/11, firefighters and police officers couldn’t communicate properly inside the World Trade Center.

This event triggered changes to the International Fire Code (IFC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes, significantly improving communications for first responders, ensuring their radios work wherever they go.

We can guide you through this process by evaluating your building and upgrading your system to meet mandatory regulations.

But hardware is only one aspect. Delivering compliant emergency connectivity also requires intimate understanding of strict EMT, fire and building codes from the planning stage and throughout implementation, annual inspection and post-incident restoration.

That's why Pando Telecom partners with state safety officials and the Safer Buildings Coalition to integrate the specific technical provisions, performance metrics and failover measures called for in NFPA, IFC and NEC standards across all jurisdictions.

We ensure that your Public Safety DAS or Emergency Responder Radio Communication System (ERRCS) meets the safety standards. We also hold advanced public safety communications credentials.

The result- your in-building radio network not only fosters fast, clear voice communications for responders where they need it most, but meets the most stringent public safety statutory demands.

Pando’s philosophy of “know thy AHJ” reinforces the idea that knowing the code is not enough; relationships need to be established at the AHJ level.
