FDNY ARC System Testing

An ARC System provides a dedicated communication medium for the First Responders while responding to the emergency in that particular building. The First Responders, including the FDNY, NYPD, EMTs, FBI, CIA, Port Authority PD, and the Federal Secret Service are able to communicate via a frequency spectrum that is exclusive to their equipment.

Regular, monthly testing of an ARC System ensures that the communication systems work exactly as they are designed. Hopefully you would never need to use these systems in a true emergency, however, it is very important to maintain their integrity and fulfill the FDNY testing requirements in order to avoid any violations.

FDNY ARCS In-Building Radio System Testing Regulations

A successful FDNY radio system test ensures adequate signal strength in all areas of the building that might be accessed by First Responders . Upon completion of the installation and commissioning of an ARCS, the Fire Department of New York requires routing inspections and testing to ensure the systems’ integrity.

This testing requires a licensed company and certified individual to oversee the process. This professional must hold a Certificate of Fitness issued by the Fire Department of New York. This person oversees the testing process and holds the prerequisite skills pertaining to New York City’s Fire Code, Building Code and the standards that are applicable to each ARCS test.

What To Expect During ARCS Testing

Property managers at high-rise buildings often have daily testing measures in place. For instance, security personnel might need to make a test call on the radio at the start of each shift or in the morning to ensure the system is up and running. However, when it comes to fulfilling the expectations of the FDNY, licensed contractors are required to maintain specific certifications.

This certification ensures property managers and building owners that the firm conducting these tests follows the same standards used by the Fire Department of New York. While performing these tests, we will identify any issues with the ARCS equipment and assist in-house personnel rectify any problems they may have been experiencing.

    Question About ARC System Repairs
    How do I know if my ARC system needs to be replaced?

    Sometimes the radio equipment might be past the point of repair and show significant signs of damage. This might make purchasing a new radio more economical and in these instances, we ensure the following:

    • We show you exactly what is wrong.
    • We identify the parts that need to be removed.
    • You receive an estimate for the repair.

    With this information on hand, you are then in a much better position to determine if you want to continue with the repairs or order new equipment. Depending on overall costs, we would advise you with our honest opinion to fit your specific budget and needs.

    Are ARCS repairs complex?

    Resolving the issue may be as simple as a building fire radio repair. Allstate Sprinkler will first begin by inspecting the radio to determine it’s functionality. This provides us with the information we need to troubleshoot and diagnose the problem. Thereafter we can prescribe the right solution and most cost effective method to resolve the issues.
