emergency voice
communication
The Disability Discrimination Act made it the responsibility
of all companies, nationwide, to ensure that access to
buildings and services is available to everyone - there must
be no discrimination.
With access provided for all, provision must be made for
safe evacuation in the event of an emergency. In some
circumstances, those with physical impairments can be
assisted by others - but in many situations this is not
suitable or safe.
A solution comes in the form of temporary areas of
safety - ‘refuge areas’. The person in need of assistance
is helped to the closest refuge area and awaits safe
evacuation.
VIGIL OmniCare:
• Disabled refuge remotes
• Fire telephones
• Advance disabled refuge remotes
• Emergency/steward telephones
Refuge areas must meet certain criteria, these are covered
in BS9999:2008. As well as describing suitable areas for
refuge and the type of construction, the Standard specifies
the need for two way communication.
• Combined fire telephones and
disabled remotes
Another Standard, BS5839-9:2011, provides the details
on the communication system that is needed for a
refuge area.
• ALL ON ONE SYSTEM
VIGIL OmniCare complies with BS5839-9:2011 and
assists companies with compliance to BS9999:2008,
BS8300:2009 (for the disabled toilet alarm) and the DDA.

refuge calls (toilet alarms and fire telephones remain
active). Can be completely or partly overridden.
•
Remote units are connected to the master control panel in
a loop configuration. (Please see separate leaflet.)
•
Fully BS9999:2008, BS5839-9:2011 and BS8300:2009

•
•
Disabled refuge units have the option to be triggered
by the fire alarm panel, so that the units become active
during an emergency. (Fire telephones, emergency
telephones and toilet alarms are constantly active).
•
This prevents accidental or deliberate misuse as the
remote units remain dormant until activated.
•
In order to activate the system for non-emergency use
it is necessary to override the fire panel. This is achieved
by connecting a ‘break glass’ unit (BVCRBG) to the master
control panel.

OmniCare is an emergency voice communication system that allows disabled refuge, fire
telephones, emergency/steward telephones and disabled toilet alarms to be connected
to one master control panel. VIGIL OmniCare has been designed and built to meet
BS9999:2008, BS5839-9:2011 and BS8300:2009 (for the disabled toilet alarm).
GENERAL INFORMATION:
•
There are two main components - the master control
panel(s) and the remote units.
•
A repeater unit (BVOCRIF) must be used if the distance
between remotes exceeds 200m.
•
Remote units are wired in a ring circuit configuration and
are ‘self-learning’, with an auto-commissioning feature.
•
•
The ring circuit technology enables continued operation in
the event of a cable break.
Disabled refuge, advance disabled refuge, fire telephone,
emergency/steward telephone, combined DRS/fire
telephone and toilet alarm units can be placed on the
same loop.
•
Any combination of remote units can be linked to the
control panel on a single wiring loop.
•
Typically 20-30 remotes per loop.
•
Repeater units (BVOCRIF) are used to connect the toilet
alarms (DTAKIT) to the system. Up to two (3-part) DTAKITs
can be connected to a BVOCRIF. (Alternatively one
DTAKIT with an additional pull cord can be installed.
Useful for rooms with two points of call, e.g. a toilet cubicle
with a shower area.)
•
The master control panel is typically wall mounted in a
central control room.
•
Remote units are wall mounted in locations such as
refuge areas, stairwells, fallback positions, corridors and
other ‘gathering’ points, at a height easily reached by
users (see ‘MOUNTING POSITION’).
•
More than one master panel can be placed on the ring
circuit, thus allowing control of local areas.
MOUNTING POSITION - BS5839-9:2011 RECOMMENDS:
•
The vertical centre of a master control panel should be
mounted at a height of 1400-1500mm for a standing
operator; or within reach of the operator’s normal position
if seated.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:
•
Fire rated enhanced four core, colour coded, cable with a
screen must be used for fire fighting systems.
•
The master control panel should be installed in an area of
low fire risk.
•
Standard fire resisting cables could be considered
suitable for:
• EVC systems for use in disabled refuges but not
for fire-fighting in (a) sprinklered buildings; (b)
unsprinklered buildings less than 30m in height,
provided that evacuation takes place in three or fewer
phases.
• Underground sections of cabling at sports and similar
venues.
•
Outstations should be placed with the vertical centre at
a height of 1300-1400mm; except in refuges where they
should be located at a height of 900-1200mm. They
should be located where background noise is normally
low.
•
Our combined fire telephone/DRS unit has been
designed to allow appropriate mounting heights for both
units. The centre point of the combined unit should be
mounted at 1235-1330mm.
Up to 200m cable run between remote units and master
control panel as standard.
•
Within a sports, or similar, venue no-one should have to
travel more than 30m to reach the nearest outstation.

EMERGENCY VOICE COMMUNICATION
THE STANDARDS
Our CARE2 and OmniCare ranges have been designed and built to meet relevant British
Standards. There are some disciplines within these Standards which we would like to point
out to you and are covered in this leaflet. The British Standards we refer to are:
BS9999:2008
•
BS5839-9:2011
•
BS8300:2009
BS9999:2008:
Code of practice for fire safety in the design, management and use of buildings. (BS9999:2008 supersedes BS5588-8).
•
•
Phased Evacuation: An EVC system should be provided
in accordance with BS5839-9, with outstations at each
floor level which communicate with a master station
located in a control room/suitable control point at fire and
rescue service access level.
•
•
•
•
•
A fire control centre should be provided in all buildings
designed for phased evacuation and in large or complex
buildings.
Refuge areas need to be provided on all storeys (except
where there is a level access to a final exit). They should
be provided for:
•
Each protected stairway affording egress from each
storey, and
•
Each final exit leading onto a flight of stairs external to
the building.
Examples of satisfactory refuges:
•
An enclosure such as a compartment, protected
lobby, protected corridor or protected stairway.
•
An area in the open air such as a flat roof, balcony,
podium or similar place sufficiently protected (or
remote) from any fire risk and provided with its own
means of escape.
The fire control centre should be either:
•
A room dedicated solely as a fire control centre, or
•
Combined with the management control room.
Throughout the building a reliable means of
communication with the fire control centre should be
provided.
•
People in each refuge need to be assured that their
presence is known to the building management. To
address this there needs to be:
•
The fire control centre communication system should
provide direct links to fire fighting lobbies/fire service
access points and disabled refuge areas.
A system of two-way communication between those
people.
•
Fire marshalls/wardens should use fire telephones to
report a floor evacuation is complete and/or report the fire
situation on that floor.
The two-way communication system needs to be
readily operated and comprehensible to all persons
likely to need to use it.
•
The system should conform to BS5839-9:2011 and
consist of Type B outstations which communicate
with a master station located in the building control
room or other suitable control point at fire and rescue
service access level.
Concerning Disabled Refuge:
•
•
Communications: In large or complex buildings a reliable
means should be provided of communicating from the
fire and rescue service access level to all fire fighting
lobbies.
Concerning Fire Telephones:
•
adverse effect on the means of escape provided.
Refuge areas and wheelchair spaces should not have any
L E A D I N G T H E W AY T O S A F E T Y
BS5839-9:2011:
Fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings - Code of practice for the design, installation, commissioning and
maintenance of emergency voice communication systems.
•
The Standard provides guidelines for use of emergency
voice communication (EVC) system in an emergency
situation and for the communication with disabled
persons.
•
Type B outstations should be operated by use of a single
call button.
•
An outstation should be used as follows:
•
Definition ‘fire telephone system’ - commonly used form
of EVC system that includes telephone handsets at
outstations and usually also at master stations.
•
An outstation intended for evacuation or fire fighting
should be Type A (Baldwin Boxall’s fire telephone/
emergency telephone).
•
Definition ‘Refuge’ - an area that is enclosed with fireresisting construction (other than any part that is an
external wall of a building) and served directly by a safe
route to a storey exit, evacuation lift or final exit. Thus
constituting a temporary safe space for disabled people
to await assistance for their evacuation.
•
An outstation used by the disabled should typically
be Type B (Baldwin Boxall’s disabled refuge/advance
disabled refuge remotes).
•
An outstation used by the public should be Type B
(Baldwin Boxall’s disabled refuge/advance disabled
refuge remotes).
•
•
EVC systems are generally needed in the following
situations:
•
In areas of high ambient noise, the outstation units should
be supplemented with a visual warning signal i.e. beacon.
•
Buildings/venues where there are people who may
have difficulty self-evacuating in an emergency.
•
Type A outstations should either have a door or
removable front panel.
•
Buildings with phased evacuation.
•
Outstations should be capable of flush mounting.
•
Buildings without phased evacuation but where size/
type/shape necessitates communication between
locations and to facilitate evacuation/firefighting.
•
•
Sports venues, or similar, where stewards may need
to control an evacuation.
Outstations intended for fire fighting should be red in
colour. Outstations intended for refuge communication by
disabled people should be green in colour (or indicated by
means of a green sign).
•
In sports venues outstations should be lockable.
•
Outstations in refuges should be readily available at all
times and not be locked.
•
In a sports venue (or similar) no-one should have to travel
more than 30m ro reach the nearest outstation.
•
In general outstations should be placed at a height of 1.3m
to 1.4m except in refuges where they should be located at
a height of 900mm to 1.2m.
Intended uses for an EVC:
•
Use by the management of the building or complex,
for its initial evacuation.
•
Use by the fire service during an evacuation.
•
Use by the fire service after an evacuation.
•
Use by disabled people.
•
As a listen in device.
Outstations:
Master control units:
•
•
Type A - an outstation using a telephone handset for
voice communication.
The master control unit should be wall mounting and have
the option to be flush mountable.
•
Type B - an outstation using an intercom and normally
mounted on a wall.
The master control unit should have a lockable door (or
key switch) when not mounted in a control room.
•
The master control unit should have its vertical centre
of the controls mounted at height of 1.4m to 1.5m and it
should be installed in an area of low fire risk.
There should be two types of outstation available:
•
•
•
Opening the door, or lifting the handset, in a Type A
outstation should initiate the call.
L E A D I N G T H E W AY T O S A F E T Y
BS5839-9:2011 continued:
System & cabling:
•
Master control units and outstations should have a
minimum of IP30 protection for mounting indoors.
•
All interconnecting cabling should be monitored.
•
An EVC system should be fully monitored and faults
reported back to the master control.
•
All controls on an EVC system should be clearly labelled.
•
In the event of power failure the EVC should have
sufficient battery backup to maintain the system for 24
hours in quiescent state followed by three hours of use in
an emergency.
•
screen must be used for fire fighting systems.
•
•
Fire rated enhanced four core, colour coded, cable with a
Standard fire resisting cables could be considered for:
•
EVC systems for use in disabled refuges but
not for fire fighting in (a) sprinklered buildings; (b)
unsprinklered buildings less than 30m in height,
provided that evacuation takes place in three or fewer
phases.
•
Underground sections of cabling at sports and similar
venues.
An EVC system should be regularly inspected and
serviced by a competent person with specialist
knowledge.
CARE2 AND VIGIL OMNICARE COMPLY TO BS9999:2008 AND BS5839-9:2011 WHEN INSTALLED CORRECTLY.
BS8300:2009:
Design of buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people. Code of practice on accessible buildings.
“Disabled people should be able to find and use suitable toilet accommodation no less easily than non-disabled people.”
•
A disabled toilet alarm must not be confused, visually or
audibly, with a fire alarm.
•
The alarm pull cord should be sited so that it can be
operated from the toilet and adjacent floor area.
•
The pull cord, coloured red, should provide two red
bangles of 50mm diameter - one set at 800-1000mm
and the other set at 100mm above floor level.
•
Visual and audible feedback should be provided to
indicate the alarm has been triggered.
•
The alarm indicator located outside the toilet area should
be placed where it will be seen and heard by people able
to provide assistance and indicate where help is required.
•
An additional alarm indicator may be fitted remotely.
•
The reset control must be clearly marked as such and
sited so that it is within reach from a wheelchair and the
toilet.
BALDWIN BOXALL’S DISABLED TOILET ALARM COMPLIES TO BS8300:2009 WHEN INSTALLED CORRECTLY.
