Emergency Communications Planning

Workplace emergency preparedness is no longer an option for businesses and institutions. Mitigating disruptions through an effective communications system plan are not only cost effective, but required by law in many instances. Even routine maintenance can disrupt communications. Emergency communications technology may be essential in these situations.

Since 9/11, companies and institutions have been implementing more stringent safety policies to ensure in-building wireless coverage is available all the time for essential communications in case of an emergency. Even more so, Homeland Security initiatives have highlight the issue of ensuring in-building wireless coverage among first responders. The ability for first responders to communicate wirelessly indoors can impact a life and death situation when performing duties in the public safety realm.

Nobody expects it, but emergencies and disasters can strike at anytime, anywhere. RFC provides consulting and solutions to assist institutions and businesses implementing Emergency Action Plans and achieving compliance for regulations such as OSHA, The California Education Code and The California Government Code.
