A large site is usually divided into evacuation zones of manageable areas – fire
compartments, floor levels etc. FICO Australia can set up each zone with its own
speaker system which can provide any or all of the following:
Background music, alert & evacuation tones, and a public address facility. Visual
alarms can be added as an option to the sound system.
We can also provide warden intercom points in each zone, for wardens to communicate
using an emergency intercom. Secondary emergency control panels and remote paging
consoles can be set up to allow public address to all the zones.
Single zone evacuation
Unlike large sites, small and medium sites do not need to be zoned. Hence an emergency
warning system can be less elaborate. FICO Australia recommends a self-contained
tone generator and speaker, with which alert evacuation tones such as fire alarm
bells, are provided.
