4200 Analog Emergency Communication System for Area of Rescue
ADA Area of Rescue Assistance Call Systems for Emergency Communication in Hospitals and Other Medical Facilities
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires an Area of Refuge system in all newly constructed multi-story commercial and public buildings. The system must provide a means to request evacuation assistance in emergencies. The ADA requirements also apply to existing multi-story facilities after significant renovations. Areas of rescue generally include stairwells though exact requirements may vary depending on local construction regulations, any sprinkler system in place, and the type of building.
Cornell’s Area of Refuge and Area of Rescue Assistance systems allow you to meet all the necessary ADA requirements for the safety of patients, residents and staff. Our 4200 Analog Emergency Communication System call stations allow patients to call for help and receive instructions in an emergency situation.
Dependable, Easy-to-Operate Rescue Assistance Communication
How It Works: The control station operator of the 4200 Series, on receiving a call station signal, activates a zone switch that illuminates both a flashing red LED and a green “voice” LED. By depressing and releasing the “talk” button, voice communication is established for as long as required. Upon completion, the appropriate zone button is depressed again; however, the flashing red light continues. If more than one zone is signaling, the control station accepts the calls in the same manner.Dependable, Easy-to-Operate Rescue Assistance Communication
When the emergency is resolved, the control station operator pushes a reset switch to restore the entire system to stand-by status. In the event of a wiring fault, each annunciator zone is equipped with a yellow LED that will illuminate and an alarm will sound identifying the area requiring service.

Emergency Call System Solution
The 4200 Series Audio Rescue Assistance System has proven itself time and again in the field and received industry-wide acceptance. The system includes voice communication, initiated by simply depressing the call station button. The signal is transmitted to a central annunciator panel with optional access to a public telephone line. A single pulse tone and a flashing light signals the caller the alarm has been received. The control station can then talk to the caller over the intercom. The caller need not take any other action to communicate with the control station, an important feature when a caller is under stress in an emergency situation.

Two-Way and Offsite Communication Systems for Medical Facilities
The 4200 analog area of refuge system allows easy two-way communication between an emergency intercom call station and a main control panel. Upgrade to the 4800 digital phone system for the ability to call emergency responders directly when onsite rescue assistance is not available.
Two-way voice communication allows those waiting for help to give information to rescue personnel and receive instructions. Labeled Areas of Refuge provide an additional benefit since patients and staff communicating where they are in the building helps rescue personnel find them more quickly.
