About the Safer Buildings Coalition

Safer Buildings Coalition Logo

Safer Buildings', primary mission is to ensure that First Responders (Fire, Law Enforcement and EMS) can use state-of-the-art voice and data communications to communicate with one another inside buildings as well as to and from their Command Centers outside buildings during an event. Safer Buildings also advocates for the public's cellular service inside buildings to function at levels necessary for location accuracy and clear communication.

We are working with stakeholders to propose changes to public policies and technical standards, and for model fire codes produced by the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), related to Public Safety communication within buildings.

We create and teach wireless communication technology courses and provide an online repository of public safety wireless information, and encourage collaboration among our Members on the goal of improving in-building communication for Public Safety.

We provide a forum for engagement and interaction among the key stakeholders in ensuring the protection of life and property within buildings. This includes first responders, fire and building code officials, government agencies, commercial real estate professionals, and the wireless industry.
