Disabled Refuge & EVCS

‘Emergency Voice Communication System’ is the generic technical term to cover ‘Fire Fighting Telephone Systems’ and ‘Disable Refuge Communication Systems. We identify safe areas within a building or existing staircase where mobility impaired occupants can be placed while the main building occupancy is evacuated, allowing building management and emergency services to safely assist these people from the building.

We install EVCS (Emergency Voice Communication System) a fixed, monitored and maintained, bidirectional, full duplex voice communication system to assist the orderly evacuation of disabled or mobility impaired people and help firefighters communicate during emergencies.

‘Refuge’ areas are relatively safe places where people who cannot easily use fire escapes and evacuation lifts may call for assistance and wait until help arrives. Simple, effective two-way communication (Refuge system) in these areas is essential; firstly, to assist rescue teams in determining where assistance is required and secondly to reassure people help is on the way.
