ADA Area of Refuge and Rescue Assistance System
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires multi-story buildings, such as hospitals and office buildings, to provide an Area of Refuge or Area of Rescue Assistance on each floor. This provides a place for patients, residents, visitors, and others who are disabled or have difficulty moving around to wait and call for help in an emergency, such as a fire. Rescue personnel can also evacuate the building more efficiently since many of the people on each floor will be gathered in one place.
With the 4800 Area of Rescue Assistance System, patients and residents of hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior living centers, office buildings, and other multi-story structures can feel safer in an emergency, knowing help is on the way.
Area of Refuge with 2-Way Phone Communication
The 4800 area of refuge phone system allows residents and staff to communicate not only with another staff member at the main control station but also with emergency services. With this emergency intercom system, those waiting for rescue assistance can speak directly with 911, describe their situation, and receive instructions.
Emergency Call System for Hospitals, Nursing Homes, and Office Buildings
The 4800 Digital Emergency Communication System is designed to provide fully supervised, two-way voice communication, between each area of refuge call station and the Main Control Panel. Optionally, up to (4) Remote Control Panels can also be installed throughout the building to allow alternate locations to respond to a call for assistance. An internal modem, operating at the Main Control Panel and connected to an Analog “POTS” dedicated telephone line, provides an automated-timed dial-out capability to a monitoring location.
The 4800 Digital Emergency Communication System supervises all the Call Stations, Area of Rescue Control Panels and Expansion Switches on a continuous basis to identify line faults and defective equipment. Activated Call Station locations and fault information will be alerted and displayed at the 40 character LCD four line display at each Control Panel location. Each 4800V call station is equipped with an auxiliary set of momentary form “C” contacts that can be used to activate external devices, such as a camera, strobe, or tone device.
Area of Refuge and Rescue Assistance Signs
Clear area of rescue assistance signage is necessary to ensure patients, residents, visitors, and staff are able to easily find the safe place in an emergency. Cornell offers directional area of rescue signs with arrows, lighted signs with battery backup, and photoluminescent signs.
