Fixed Station Analog Area of Refuge Command Units

  • Automatically and continuously supervises for integrity (opens, shorts, and system ground fault), low battery backup, and 24VDC input power fail—alerts by relay output to an addressable fire panel, LED, and sounder

  • On-site calling requires no outside phone line

  • Off-site calling requires one (1) analog phone line (PSTN line)

  • Solid LED indicates active call. Flashing LEDs indicate stations that are waiting to be answered. When first call is completed, second call is automatically placed and Command Unit rings. Multiple calls are placed in queue on a “first-in, first-out (FIFO)” basis.



An Area of Refuge must be clearly indicated with signage designating the space as an "Area of Refuge" or "Area of Rescue Assistance.”
