Voice Evacuation Systems

Voice Evacuation Systems, also called Voice Alarm Systems are normally a mandatory requirement in Europe for rail and air transport, high-rises, schools, hospitals, and other large facilities where there can be a large proportion of public in one area.

Voice Evacuation systems can utilise pre-recorded emergency Voice messages, warning that an emergency has been reported and to evacuate the building (often also mentioning not to use lifts), and can also be used by personnel and firefighters to give specific information and/or instructions over the alarm system.

PA systems for larger venues such as Sports Stadiums, Shopping Centres and commercial buildings generally use an Emergency Voice Evacuation System.

Usually they are either tied into the building's public address system or are outfitted with their own speakers.

The use, design, operation and installation of Voice Evacuation systems is governed in Europe by CENELEC European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization EN 60849 and in the UK by the British Standard BS 5839-Part 8 soon to be superseded by EN54-1:2008 and ISO 7240-16:2007.
