In emergency situations, the safety of building occupants and first responders often depends on the reliable availability of firefighter, EMS and police two-way radio communications. However, the same modern building materials that result in high energy efficiency impede the ubiquitous outdoor wireless signals from entering the building.

ADT Commercial provides complete in‑building Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement Systems (ERCES, previously referred to as ERRCS) for emergency responder radio coverage to support public safety-first responders. Our professional team holds FCC General Radiotelephone Operator Licenses (GROL) and includes licensed journeyman electricians, project managers, pre-construction, in-house designers and drafters, and installation personnel.

Our tenured team of professionals will work closely with you to identify the scope of the project and help meet your ERCES needs for new construction and retrofits.
