It's vital that emergency communications work the first time, every time. Maximize system integrity and performance with the 2013 NFPA 1221.

Reliable emergency communications are an integral part of effective emergency responsiveness by the fire service, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and other responders. With continually changing technology affecting both service delivery and the safety of emergency response personnel, working with the most up-to-date edition of NFPA 1221 is a must. This important Standard provides procedural and physical criteria for the installation, performance, operation, and maintenance of public emergency service communications systems and facilities.

Key changes in the 2013 NFPA 1221: Standard for the Installation, Maintenance, and Use of Emergency Service Communications Systems include:

  • New section 1.4.2 -- Retroactivity. In those cases where it is determined that the existing situation involves a distinct hazard to life or property, the authority having jurisdiction shall be permitted to require retroactive application of any provisions of this document.
  • Revisions to alarm processing times in Section 7.4.2 and 7.4.2.2. The percentage of emergency alarm processing completed within 60 seconds will go from 90% to 80%. Six categories of calls that require additional time to process were also added.
  • Major re-write on Chapters 4: Communications Center, including provisions concerning the development of a Tactical Interoperable Communications Plan (TICP) and Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP)
  • Chapter 6: Emergency Response Facilities now states that fire protection shall be provided as required by NFPA 5000®: Building Construction and Safety Code® or the locally adopted fire code, whichever is more restrictive.

Don't compromise protection of the public or responders. Put the field's best emergency communications requirements to work for you.

Fire and law enforcement departments; emergency communication centers; and local and state jurisdictions all need the 2013 NFPA 1221 to facilitate reliable emergency communications. (Softbound, 57 pp., 2013)
