In fire incident investigation reports, communication problems are often cited as a contributing factor in first responder line of duty death and injury. Emergency first responders use portable radios, known as land mobile radios or LMRs, as a critical communication tool to help ensure effective fireground command and control, to establish personnel accountability and to improve firefighter safety when operating within buildings during a fire or other emergency.
Emergency responder communication enhancement systems (ERCES) in accordance with UL 2524 certification help ensure the safety, reliability, performance and operation of ERCES as required by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1221 and the adopted fire code.
