First Responder Communications Seminar

  • Integrated Building Systems 950 Michigan Avenue Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

Did you know it's your responsibility to make sure emergency responder radios work in your building? You're at risk of not getting a certificate of occupancy for a new or newly remodeled facility if it doesn't pass the radio-frequency test required by state and local codes.

In this educational seminar*, IBS President Chip Chapman and Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief David Ringley will review the national, state, and local requirements for public safety in-building communications, including design, equipment, budgeting, and testing.


  • All building owners, especially of high rises, hospitals, senior living facilities, performance halls, schools, factories, and warehouses
  • Architects
  • General contractors
  • Property managers


  • Code requirements from the National Fire Protection Association, International Fire Code, and Ohio Fire Code for in-building communications.
  • Specifications for public-safety systems, including cabling, radio frequency, antennas, power, and pathways.
  • New enforcement guidelines from the City of Columbus for new construction, renovation projects, and high-rise or high-hazard facilities.
