Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System for New Amazon Distribution Center in Georgia

VeriDAS Installs IFC 510 Fire Code Compliant Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) in Georgia for New 2.6 MSF Amazon Distribution Center

The new 2.6 million square foot Amazon distribution center in Newnan, Georgia (outside Atlanta) required an IFC 510/ Georgia fire code compliant Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) - also called a Public Safety Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). VeriDAS Technologies was selected to design, install and certify the code-required in-building BDA signal enhancement system to extend, amplify and optimize the Coweta County, Georgia public safety radio system frequencies inside the new expansive industrial facility.

PROJECT

RF (radio frequency) signal coverage testing showed the newly constructed Amazon distribution center in Newnan, Georgia in Coweta County (outside Atlanta) needed an Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) installed to allow first responders’ radios to operate inside the expansive 2.6 million square foot facility. VeriDAS Technologies worked closely with the AHJ/ Fire Marshal and public safety radio system administrator to design a signal amplification solution that would meet Georgia Fire Code requirements, the General Contractor’s construction timeline and Amazon’s grand opening deadline. Thanks to impressive coordination and support from the City of Newnan and Coweta County, VeriDAS was able to quickly design, install, certify and secure AHJ approval on the IFC 510 compliant ERRCS. The new distribution center was able to complete construction and begin operations without delay.

SCOPE

The new 2.6 million square foot Amazon distribution center in Newnan, Georgia (outside Atlanta) required an Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) in order to comply with Georgia state fire code / IFC 510. VeriDAS was selected for the project that included:
