Cell Phone Signal Boosters for First Responders


Signal Boosters for First Responders

First responders need reliable cellular communications inside their base station and vehicles. Solid Signal provides signal booster solutions for emergency personnel.

First aid responders answer emergency situations that happen in seconds. To respond as quickly as possible, emergency personnel need a dependable communications infrastructure. Sadly, equipment purchased even a few years ago could become obsolete very soon.  (The FCC is opening up new frequencies for cellular data, which means that older boosters aren’t made to provide this coverage.)  Fortunately, Solid Signal has the solution. Actually, we have many solutions for the variety of installation requirements encountered in community first responder installations.  Our experts will match you with the best signal booster system for your base station and/or emergency vehicles.


What is a Signal Booster?

In this age of text and voice, signal boosters are just as important as cell phones and towers. Also known as cellular signal boosters or cell boosters, these units amplify weak voice and data signals. The device rebroadcasts this enhanced signal to a base station, office, or emergency vehicle. This makes for faster, more reliable voice and data signal. Cell phone amplifiers are compatible with most cell phone service providers. These devices work on any phone that use 2G, 3G, and 4G signals.

There are many different types of signal boosters for community first responders.

Here are some of the most common uses of cell boosters:

  1.  Boosting cellular signal inside a base station or office.
  2. Improving text and voice data inside an emergency vehicle.


Why First Responders Need Cell Boosters

Lives depend upon your ability to receive and transmit text and voice data. Unfortunately, many first responders face challenges with their communications infrastructures. The FCC keeps changing the way the radio spectrum is allocated. This limits the amount of frequencies used for first aid responder broadcasting. Relying upon this broadcast spectrum could lead to spotty and/or inconsistent service. When lives are at stake, this will not do.

As a first responder, your communications technology must be the best. It has to be reliable in all weather conditions. These units also must stay connected throughout your coverage area.  How can your organization have complete confidence in your communications equipment? Adding cell boosters to your base station and emergency vehicles gives you peace of mind. These devices improve the speed and strength of the voice and data signals you send and receive.  

  1. Base Stations: Do your headquarters or office suffer from weak signal strength? If so, the reason could be the building material and layout. These factors can weaken, disrupt, and even block radio waves. As a result, you typically get missed or dropped calls and data. This puts the people you’re trying to help in grave danger! A signal booster amplifies each frequency band to its maximum potential. This creates effective, two-way communication with dependable signal.
  2.  Emergency Vehicles: Most if not all communication of your communications in the field is to and from these vehicles. On any day, you encounter valleys, buildings, and other obstacles that hinder communication. We can match you with an in-vehicle cell booster and antenna combo.  This improves voice and data to and from your cruisers, ambulances, and other first responder vehicles. 


Signal Boosters for First Responders

When it comes to cell boosters, first responders have three choices. You can get signal boosters for your base stations, emergency vehicles, or both. For either of these applications, first responders want bi-directional signal boosters. In some cases, these devices amplify the incoming and outgoing cellular portions of the public safety 700 and 800 bands. If you’re a police department, fire station or EMS/ambulance driver, your organization probably uses these bands.

  • Signal Boosters for Police Vehicles: Police work is important and time-sensitive, especially during emergencies. Not being able to call for backup, or communicate critical details, can mean the difference between saving a life and losing one. Don’t rely on one form of communication when lives are at stake. A signal booster for police vehicles provides crucial security and reliability.
  • Cell Boosters for Fire Safety Vehicles: When it comes to a firefighter’s duties, communication is key. Firefighters must maintain contact with the radio personnel back at the base. They also need to reach utilities personnel to shut off gas and electricity at large fires. There’s too much at stake to not have reliable communications equipment. This is why we say a cell booster is one of the most important firefighting tools.
  • Cell Phone Amplifiers for EMS/Ambulance Vehicles: Paramedics need to know where the emergency is and who needs assistance. They also have to radio ahead to let hospital staff know that the ambulance is on its way. All this requires a reliable communications infrastructure that includes a cell phone amplifier. Having this equipment lets one EMTs drive while the other tends to the patient.
