Emergency Voice Communication Systems protect life by transmitting emergency situations and communicating information necessary to facilitate a response to the emergency. Thesesystems can be stand alone systems or be part of a building's fire alarm system. The proper design of an Emergency Voice Communication System involves a thorough study of the risks associated with the facility and the types of signals to be delivered—audible, visual, textural or through some other means. The design should involve coordinated meetings with all stakeholders in the project including the various owner representatives, members of the authority having jurisdiction, insurance representatives and any other interested parties.The Emergency Voice Communication System provisions in the national fire codes are relatively new and present significant changes to previous fire code descriptions. Antal & Associates has experience with the design of Emergency Voice Communication Systems in campus, high rise and industrial facilities and we look forward to helping you with your project.
