What is an ARC System (ARCS)?
An Auxiliary Radio Communication System (ARCS) is an installed distributed antenna system enabling a firefighter to communicate from any location inside a building that is within the transmission range of an antenna. ARC Systems use two-way radio technology to enhance transmitted signals to create certified coverage throughout buildings where municipal jurisdictions require the system.
Why do I need an FDNY ARCS?
The FDNY ARCS program was implemented to meet the 2014 New York City Building Code, ensuring that the FDNY can use two-way radio communications to coordinate an emergency response. TowerIQ's Tactical Series is universally adaptable to fit any ARC or BDA system and meets national requirements for municipal jurisdictions.

The Tactical Series Universal Dedicated Radio Monitor is installed at the Fire Command Center as the building’s Dedicated Radio Console (DRC). A DRC is configured to meet FDNY requirements, including the simultaneous control of voice communications on two, two-way radio channels.Tactical Series Products
