BDA Solutions For
Chapter 11.10 of the Florida Fire Protection Code is now being enforced by your local AHJ (fire department). This code calls for BDA systems (ERRCS) to be installed in buildings with insufficient public safety radio coverage. Stellar Communications offers BDA coverage enhancement solutions for residential buildings, meeting all unique jurisdictional, state, and federal code compliance requirements.
As a property manager, I was tasked with finding proposals to perform the BDA RSSI test for one of my buildings. I received a few including one from our regular fire system service provider. While managers have a general knowledge of systems, we are not specialists in all areas of fire, life, and safety operations. I was fortunate enough to meet, through referral to Stellar, Robert Harrison, he shared his extensive knowledge on this process. He responded quickly and just as efficiently, provided a code-compliant quote to carry out the 20x20 RSSI grid test at our property and offered to arrange the DAQ test when this test was completed. Stellar Communications likely saved the property thousands of dollars in equipment they proved we did not need. Stellar Communications communicated with the local fire department and government representatives, on our behalf, to be sure we were recorded as being in compliance with the required codes. All of this was proposed, completed, and reported within 2 weeks of our first contact. AMAZING! I would highly recommend them.
