We understand that compliance with PSERN is an un-funded mandate.  Building owners may be looking to take the cheapest path to compliance as possible.  But beware, not all DAS integrators are created equal. Hiring a vendor with qualified and experienced DAS technicians, engineers, and experience in the local area will lead to less issues with your transition to PSERN.  Refer to this DAS Vendor Checklist produced by PSERN to see if your integrator is qualified.

The following are suggested criteria for a property to consider when selecting a DAS vendor to service a public safety DAS:

  • Valid Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued general radio operator’s license (GROL) held by vendor
  • Certification of training by manufacturer of DAS equipment installed in the building
  • Other DAS training from trade organizations or other DAS equipment manufacturers
  • Records of performance describing execution of DAS installation, scheduling milestones, and quoted pricing
  • Records of experience with similar buildings and scopes of work, especially servicing and recertifying DAS
  • Customer references- consider similar size of building, type of building, geographic location.
  • Demonstrated understanding of local interpretation of relevant fire code
  • WA licensed professional engineer on staff
