SBC Releases Best Practice: Understanding ERCES Backbone, Distribution, and Pathway Survivability

Excerpt from the industry-leading book Complete ERCES Handbook, with bonus content

White Paper

Posted on December 20, 2023

At the Safer Buildings Coalition, we are very often asked questions about ERCES technology, code interpretation, best practices, and every manner of topic you might imagine might come up in discussion on this admittedly complex, and at times confusing, subject.

To help jurisdictions and industry vendors engage in a good dialogue about the correct way to interpret the codes and standards pertaining to ERCES Backbone, Distribution, and Pathway Survivability, we have decided to share a detailed excerpt from our industry-leading reference: Complete ERCES Handbook, along with some useful bonus content. We hope you find it useful in arriving at the best decisions about pathway survivability for the ERCES projects in which you engage.

From the Chief’s Corner: Our Christmas Gift for You!…

SBC Releases Best Practice: Understanding ERCES Backbone, Distribution, and Pathway Survivability

Chief Alan Perdue

By Chief Alan Perdue (ret.), SBC Executive Director

Posted on December 18, 2023

As I was reflecting on this year’s numerous SBC activities, I thought about requirements for backbone, distribution, and pathway survivability. We field more questions about this topic than anything else, which lead me to think about the phrase “The Gift That Keeps on Giving.” And I believe that we, at the Coalition, have put together just that. From all of us to all of you.

So, who better to ask than our very own SBC Board of Directors -- all of whom are seasoned, thoughtful industry leaders who are up close and personal with the latest and most important developments in technology, codes & standards, enforcement and workforce development — every day?
