What is PSERN?

The Public Safety Radio Enhancement Network (PSERN) is a statewide radio network developed to improve emergency response capabilities across Washington State. PSERN enhances communication, coordination, and collaboration between public safety answering points (PSAPs) and first responders while providing higher security and reliability levels.

Businesses are transitioning to PSERN for several reasons.

The network offers:

By migrating to the PSERN DAS, businesses can ensure reliable and secure communication even during emergencies.

DAS Transition Requirements 

To ensure the Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) Transition in King County meets public safety and radio frequency regulations, the PSERN Project is working closely with local authorities. These systems must adhere to the following:

Public Safety/Fire Code Requirements

Public safety and fire code requirements to transition to PSERN DAS must be met for a successful migration.

Authority

The Fire Marshals in King County, represented by the King County Fire Chiefs Association, are responsible for enforcing the fire code for DAS and have sent an official notice to all DAS properties on record announcing the transition to PSERN and necessary actions for compliance.

DAS Fire Code

Providing in-building DAS emergency radio coverage is required by the Washington Fire Code, with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1221 as the reference standard and local amendments, adopted statewide per RCW 19.27.031 and WAC 51-54A-003.

Broadcast Radio System Fire Code

The Washington Fire Code (Section 510.6.2) requires that DAS Property Owners comply with any modifications to their broadcast radio system, which must be PSERN-compliant.

Enforcement

To ensure a smooth transition to PSERN, Fire Marshals in King County have adopted Technical Criteria for the system and revamped their annual certification of occupancy by incorporating confidence testing.

Radio Frequency/FCC Requirements

We are familiar with the FCC requirements for transitioning to PSERN DAS and will work closely with your staff to ensure all necessary regulations are met.

Authority

Licensees have the right to authorize non-licensees, such as properties with DAS systems, and permission to rebroadcast an emergency radio system.

Use of Signal Booster Requirement

Non-licensees seeking to operate signal boosters must obtain the consent of the frequencies' licensees and maintain it in a recordable format, as per 47 Code of Federal Regulations § 90.219.b.1.i.

Enforcement

DAS properties must sign a new Rebroadcast Agreement with PSERN, with the consent to connect to the new PSERN System, which the PSERN Project in the Emergency Radio Communications Division of King County IT will facilitate.

Meet Public Safety and Radio Frequency Regulations for Your Organization

At Linkwave, we provide the support and expertise to help you successfully transition to PSERN. Our team will help you meet all fire codes and radio frequencies.

DAS Migration Process Overview

To ensure a smooth transition, we provide a comprehensive migration process. This includes:

Ensuring the Reactivation of Public Safety DAS and Confirming Non-Interference with PSERN

Properties that require a Public Safety Emergency Radio Network (PSERN) will need to seek the services of a DAS vendor for tasks such as:

Recommissioning DAS for PSERN

Enhancing or exchanging DAS hardware and reconfiguring the software settings to achieve optimal performance.

Validating Non-Interference with PSERN

After the recommissioning process is completed, it's essential to have a DAS vendor carry out Uplink Validation to ensure that your public safety DAS doesn't interfere with PSERN.

Coverage Compliance Documentation

After confirming the public safety DAS is PSERN compatible, all parties involved will sign a Rebroadcast Agreement and submit it to the Fire Marshal with any other necessary technical reports. This ensures optimal radio coverage compliance on your property.

PSERN Project Coordination with DAS Vendors and Fire Marshals

The PSERN Project is collaborating with DAS vendors and Fire Marshals throughout the entire migration process, including:

Informing Properties of Assigned Dates

Fire Marshals will supply the PSERN Project with a ranking of property levels to ensure that properties are informed of their designated migration dates.

Informing Fire Marshals of Property Impairment

The Fire Marshals will be informed of the migration process to inform first responders of alternative measures during emergencies with disabled DAS.

Scheduling Recommission Testing and Validation

To guarantee that the PSERN Project's radio system will not be disrupted, DAS vendors must coordinate when they conduct recommissioning testing and validation with the PSERN Project.

What Action Should I Take to Ensure a Successful PSERN DAS Migration?

To ensure a successful PSERN DAS migration, you should follow a comprehensive and well-planned approach. This includes:

You should also work closely with professional DAS vendors to help ensure your systems meet all regulations and requirements. Proper planning, preparation, and communication are critical factors in ensuring a successful PSERN DAS migration for businesses.

At Linkwave, you can rely on our PSERN migration assistance to help you meet public safety and radio frequency regulations. We will ensure that your transition from your current system to the PSERN system goes smoothly and successfully.
