Full Description

Help protect public welfare with reliable emergency services communications using NFPA 1221.

Prompt and effective emergency response -- by the fire service, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and other entities -- depends on reliable emergency services communications. NFPA 1221, Standard for the Installation, Maintenance, and Use of Emergency Services Communications Systems covers all aspects of service delivery, from receiving calls to dispatching emergency units to the correct location in the appropriate time period. It provides procedural and physical criteria for the installation, performance, operation, and maintenance of public emergency services communications systems and facilities.

Changes reflect the needs and concerns in the field today.

In response to a tentative interim amendment (TIA) issued for the 2016 edition, new requirements regarding two-way radio communications enhancement systems eliminate the need for pathway survivability for antenna cables. New coverage addresses data security for communication systems to give communities added support in a critical area. Other changes include:
  • A global revision to change "alarm" to "event" to recognize the many ways calls for service are processed by emergency communications centers
  • Updated definitions based on current terminology
  • Updated extracts drawn from the latest codes and standards
  • New call processing time benchmarks based on recent evaluations
Help protect the public by keeping your emergency communications systems up to code.

Fire and law enforcement departments, emergency communications centers, and local and state jurisdictions all need the 2019 edition of NFPA 1221 to facilitate reliable and survivable emergency services communications systems. (Softbound, 72 pp., 2019)
