Components of the Overlook III’s Life Safety System
The heart of the Overlook III's Life Safety System is the Fire Command Center located on the first floor of the building. The equipment housed here monitors all smoke detectors, sprinkler water flow & tamper switches, and the status of the emergency generator, elevators, and fire pump. The public address system used to communicate to all or selected floors in initiating evacuations is located in this room.
Photo-electronic Smoke Detectors are strategically located throughout the building common areas and mechanical rooms. They can be identified by a red, blinking light.
In an alarm situation, fire alarm horns and strobes are located so that they can be heard or seen in any area of the building. When an alarm on a floor is activated, the floor above and the floor below stairwells will also go into alarm. After 5 minutes, if the alarm has not been acknowledged, the building will be sent into general alarm.
