Understanding Emergency Responder Radio Coverage Systems (1 LU/HSW)
An Emergency Responder Radio Coverage (ERRC) System, also known as a Public Safety or First Responder DAS (Distributed Antenna System), has become a mandated in-building requirement for many municipalities around the country. This network essentially re-transmits Fire or Police radio frequencies from outside a building, where the signal is presumably stronger, into the building, where it usually is weaker or non-existent. Upon completion of this course, you will have gained additional understanding of ERRC with an emphasis on what to consider as it related to code and the City of San Antonio. This webinar will focus on what this system is, what buildings qualify for this system, how to determine if a system is needed based on facility coverage testing and finally what is involved with the deployment of an ERRC system. Learning Objectives: What is ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) City of San Antonio Code and How it Impacts Us Coverage Testing (Site Survey) Design, Install and Maintenance of ERRC System Based on Survey Results and Code At the end of the 60 minute webinar, there will be an open-forum question and answer session.

Fiberglass Window Installation Systems for Commercial Buildings (1 LU/HSW)
Selecting a window system for use in new or renovated commercial and institutional buildings has typically centered on aluminum, steel, aluminum-clad wood, or vinyl windows. In the last fifteen years, however, another choice has gained popularity for a lot of good reasons. Sustainable fiberglass window systems are being specified and installed more and more in retail facilities, offices, schools, colleges, condominiums, apartments and many other buildings. They are well suited for a variety of different design applications whether horizontal, vertical, or punched window looks are sought. Their installation methods are numerous and suited to a variety of building construction types for both new and existing construction.

Modern Materials for Traditional Neighborhoods (1 LU/HSW)
The session involves a brief discussion of the basic how-and-why of traditional neighborhoods, including iconic platting elements like small front yards and public spaces, and the design of individual units with an eye on the block-face to achieve harmonious streetscapes. This program will touch on various elements of sustainability, Green, OSHA requirements, fire safety, wind load, and other general code matters associated with vinyl siding and trim.
