What is a Voice Alarm System?
A voice alarm (VA) - or voice evacuation (VE) - system is installed with the safety of staff and general public in mind. It’s no surprise that the best way to keep people calm in an emergency is to give them a clear, intelligible message that keeps them informed and explains what to do. A voice evaucation system assists in the effective evacuation of an area or building during a fire, bomb alert or other emergency. At all other times a voice alarm system is used to make public address announcements or other broadcasts.
Different zones are created so that during an emergency zones can be broadcast to individually, in groups or all at once. This can be either via pre-recorded messages or via emergency fire microphones.to all areas of a site or to selected areas.
What are the advantages of a Voice Alarm System?
Research has proven that in an emergency people will react without confusion or panic if they receive clear and relevant messages or instructions. Essentially, Voice Evacuation Systems can also be programmed for phased evacuation or to ensure that the most vulnerable or in danger are evaucated first. This ensures that even untrained personnel are evacuated efficiently and quickly but all controls can be easily overridden by building control or fire officers if required.
Specific messages are stored within a voice alarm system and can be multi-lingual. Traditional bells and sounders only give a warning, they do not indicate the nature of the emergency. Often, unfortunately, signals are ignored with deadly consequences as even a small delay in evacuation can be fatal.
