Disabled Refuge

A Disabled Refuge System or EVCS is a fixed, secure, bi-directional, full duplex voice communication system to assist fire fighters during emergencies in high rise buildings or large sites where radio communication cannot be guaranteed to work due to interference from the fire corona.
All systems offered by Morris Churchfield are designed to fully comply with BS5839-1:2013 for use as a fire telephone system, disabled refuge call system or as a combined system when both fire telephones and disabled refuge points are required. The standard states that where both systems are fitted to a building these should form a single system.
