Area of Refuge Requirements
During emergencies, building occupants are usually directed to use stairwells instead of elevators, which can be dangerously vulnerable to power outages and equipment failure. Not everyone can traverse stairwells quickly or easily, however—individuals with disabilities or mobility impairments need alternatives.
An “area of refuge” (AOR) is a mandated safe location in multilevel buildings designated for assisted rescues in an emergency, equipped with a reliable, code-compliant two-way communication system to keep stranded personnel in continuous contact with first responders or emergency services.
