      Record keeping

    Correct Answer
    B. Service agreements
    Explanation
    A remote station system is a system that allows for remote monitoring and control of various equipment or processes. It typically includes features such as record keeping, dispatching the appropriate authorities, and being acceptable to the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction). However, service agreements are not a requirement for a remote station system as they are not directly related to its functioning or operation. Service agreements are typically contracts between a service provider and a customer for the provision of specific services, which may or may not be necessary for the remote station system to function effectively.

Having multiple operators also allows for better coordination and collaboration in handling different situations. This requirement helps to ensure the safety and security of the subscribers and the proper functioning of the central station.
