Since 2014, the FDNY ARCS Program was implemented to meet the New York City Building Code. The City of New York made it a requirement that all new constructed high-rise buildings taller than 75 feet, must install and maintain ARCS.
During emergencies, communication amongst firefighters can make the difference between life and death.
The optimal choice for communication between firefighters during emergencies is ‘radio to radio communication’ as opposed to using an outside repeater which has numerous limitations.
The ‘radio to radio communication system’ may be the ideal solution in smaller buildings. However, in newer, high-rise buildings constructed of steel and glass, the radio signals get severely compromised leaving firefighters with poor coverage for their communications.
In an effort to combat this challenge, the National Fire Code now requires that any building that exceeds 75 feet in height must have an in building Distributed Antenna System.
The system required by the FDNY and other municipalities is known as the ARCS which stands for Auxiliary Radio Communications System.
