4800 Series Area of Refuge System Two-Way Communication
The International Building Code (IBC) requires two way communication from the caller to a local control panel or 911 center when the control panel is not responding. If your Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) requires intercom capability to the 911 center select the 4800 system.
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.
