Mission

From our inception before the FCC in February 2012, the Safer Buildings Coalition has been at the forefront advancing the idea that wireless technology makes people inside large buildings safer.

When the public can use their mobile phones to call for help, be notified when there is an emergency, and know that emergency personnel can communicate inside the building where the emergency is taking place, we will have fulfilled our mission.

The Safer Buildings Coalition is an independent, non-profit organization focused on advancing policies, ideas and technologies that ensure comprehensive in-building communications capabilities for Public Safety and the people they serve.

The Safer Buildings Coalition leads in:

Fire Code Development: We work with our members and key stakeholders to propose and advocate for changes to model fire codes and standards produced by the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) related to in-building Public Safety communications.

Thought Leadership, Education, Advocacy: In-Building Wireless Connectivity is key to public safety. We help stakeholders stay at the forefront of in-building Cellular and Public Safety wireless communication innovations and opportunities.

Fostering a Community of Practice: In-Building Public Safety Industry The Safer Buildings Coalition fosters constructive collaboration among wireless industry stakeholders such as Commercial Real Estate and End Users, Manufacturers, Distributors, Integrators, Engineering and Design, Wireless Carriers, Third-Party Operators, and others to further the mission of making buildings safer for First Responders and the public they serve.
