In Case of Fire Two Stage Alarm Wording

Two-stage alarm systems first emit a distinct alert signal to notify staff within the building of the fire emergency. This signal is coded so that only staff are aware of its meaning and can immediately investigate the source of the alarm. If the staffs’ investigation deems that a fire emergency does exist, the staff must then activate the alarm signal for occupants of the building. If the fire emergency does not exist, the staff can silence the coded signal and reset the system.  

Two-stage alarm systems are typically used if programmed evacuation is required which typically occurs in high-rise buildings or if a general alarm would cause undue distress to the occupants (for example, health care facilities). See wording options below. Shop our entire selection here.
