Occupant Warning Systems

Emergency Warning and Evacuation Systems are a critical element of a life safety system.

These systems are designed to facilitate the orderly evacuation of a building in the event of an emergency. The system is comprised of speakers, special phone points and break-glass alarms distributed throughout a building or site. The central panel allows the Chief Warden or Fire Authority to manage the evacuation process.

The evacuation system is triggered either by a connected fire alarm panel (having detected smoke), or by a person activating the break-glass alarm. An automatic evacuation process will then proceed via a series of warning sirens sounding in relevant areas.

Appropriate training of wardens is required to manage the evacuation of people during this time.
