A BDA system is essentially a way to increase safety for first responders when in your building by boosting the communication signals on the local Emergency Responder Radio System (ERRS.) Learn more here.
As of 2020, 47 state regulations require that all new buildings have proper communication streams for first responders within a building- this requires a UL certificate.
There is also a grandfather clause that allows existing buildings some time to make the investment in a BDA system, though this is based on a state by state basis.
If you are unsure as to whether your existing building has proper connectivity for first responders, Technology Install Partners can come to your building and do a test throughout the facility.
