A Disabled Refuge may be defined as a location or safe place where persons who cannot easily use fire escapes and lifts can call for help and remain until assistance arrives.
Communication systems in these areas are known as Emergency Voice Communication (EVC) Systems. The design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of these systems are governed by British Standards 5839:2003 Part 9.These standards identify two types of EVC system, namely Disabled Refuge and Fire Telephone.
