Safety Challenge

In today’s technological world, no device is more highly valued to the average consumer than the cellphone. The number of wireless devices has increased to over 400,000,000 in the United States alone. To support these devices, the number of municipal and commercial antenna systems has exploded to 600,000 and is expected to continue to grow exponentially.

A number of municipal and commercial antenna systems

Previously, individual commercial wireless transmitting antennas had been solely located on remote towers behind locked gates to keep the public safe. Today, however, municipal and commercial antenna systems are routinely co-located on structures in densely populated areas and often disguised for aesthetic reasons.
