Disabled refuge communication systems

Current building regulations state that all new non-domestic buildings greater than a single storey provide ‘refuge’ areas so that people who are unable to use fire escapes can call for assistance and wait until help arrives. Effective two-way communication in these areas is essential, firstly to assist rescue services in determining where assistance is required and secondly to reassure stranded people that help is coming.

BS5839-9:2003 states: "An EVC (emergency voice communication) or Disabled Refuge System allows firefighters and others to communicate with one another during emergency situations. The system also allows communication with disabled persons. It is a "system that allows voice communication in either direction between a central control point and a number of other points throughout a building or building complex, particularly under the direction of management of firefighters"
