The CARE2 fire telephone is a Type A outstation as defined by BS5839-9. The fire telephone outstation is used by fire officers or building management during an emergency – such as a fire. It is a means of direct communication between those in different areas/levels of a building and a trained/responsible person at the control console. There is also a ‘conference call’ and an ‘all call’ facility built into the system. A fire telephone (Type A outstation) assists with the efficient evacuation of a building, providing a method of clear communication between two or more points. In a typical installation, a fire telephone is located on each floor of a building (as a minimum), in areas that are easily accessible.
