Area of Refuge

Area of Refuge

Area of Refuge requirements are determined by state

Area_Of_RefugeAn Area of Refuge is designed for people that are unable to vacate a structure on their own in the event of an emergency. These spaces will be a safe place for them to call for help, and wait for rescue to assist their evacuation. Any new construction of public buildings, over one level, are required to install an Area of Refuge on each level above or below ground level.

Requirements for the emergency communication areas and equipment:

• Allow two-way communication when call is placed
• Have audible and visual signals that help has been reached
• Areas need to be clearly marked
• Must be located on each floor above or below ground level
• Connect to a central location in the building, or to an outside line if this is not possible
