ADA Area of Refuge System Signage
ADA approved signage is necessary to ensure personnel are able to easily find a safe place in an emergency.
Cornell offers ADA approved signs for:
- Directions to the call station area
- System Operation
- Room Location
All signs are either lighted with battery backup or have a photoluminescent system design.
Area of Rescue Assistance System
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, you need Cornell's system.
The 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.
