Fire and Life Safety: Notification and emergency communication systems
Every facility has inherent and unique risks, which introduce emergency communication design challenges. Understanding emergency communication system design, installation, and maintenance criteria requires engineers to be familiar with the applicable codes and standards, primarily NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Whether designing to provide emergency communication for fire or mass notification emergencies, NFPA 72 can be used as a tool to enhance the design, installation, and reliability of fire alarm systems used for emergency communications.
