Area of Rescue
How are the requirements for an Area of Rescue determined?
Area of Rescue locations are regulated by the International Code Council, National Fire Protection Association, and Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibilities Guidelines. Specific requirements are provided for features such as location, size, stairway width and two-way communications of emergency communication systems in the construction of new buildings, but will vary by state.
The basic requirements for emergency communication areas
- Areas need to be clearly marked
- Allow two-way communication when call is placed
- Have audible and visual signals that help has been reached
- Must be located on each floor above or below ground level
- Connect to a central location in the building, or to an outside line
