What is an emergency communication system (ECS)? The purpose of an emergency communication system is to keep people informed of both fire and non-fire emergencies with real time information that will direct them to safety, whether that means to evacuate or go to a specific place of refuge. Emergencies could be caused by intruders, accidents, or natural disasters. Building managers need to be ready to respond when a life threatening emergency occurs.
