Learners will interactively control a Fire Indicator Panel (FIP) and a Emergency Warning Intercommunication System (EWIS) pictured below. People who undertake this work may act as the primary liaison with emergency services after their arrival. This unit is part of suite of eleven workplace emergency response units and is part of the evacuation stream. This unit has been developed to cover the broad range of emergencies and workplaces as considered in Australian Standard 3745.
Ability to relate to range of people from a range of cultural, linguistic, social and ethnic backgrounds, and a range of physical and intellectual abilities. Hazard identification and precautions to be taken during emergencies and during an evacuation. Emergency Warning and Intercommunication Systems (EWIS) have been designed to facilitate the orderly and speedy evacuation of a building in the event of an emergency.
The Emergency Warning System (EWS) generates and controls audible warning signals via dedicated amplifiers and loudspeakers installed on each level or in each zone of a building.


The Emergency Intercommunication System (EIS) provides dedicated emergency telephone communications between the Emergency Control Panel (ECP) and Fire Warden Intercommunication Points (WIPs) in each zone. Topics covered in this course include: Locate and identify fire safety systems, check and monitor the status of fire safety systems. This unit would benefit members of Emergency Control Organisations, Emergency Planning Committee and Emergency Response Teams. This procedure may be initiated automatically by a fire alarm system, fire sprinkler system or manually by a break glass call point.
Secondary ECPs Secondary Emergency Control Panels (SECPs) may be connected to allow control and monitoring of the complete EIS system from multiple locations.
An EWIS system may be used as a fully automated system or it will allow Fire Wardens to easily control and co-ordinate an evacuation using the dedicated emergency telephone network.
A priority system arbitrates handover control between the Master ECP and SECPs, and also allows a SECP to take full control should the Master ECP fail. High-rise and other special building classifications may require the use of the automatic cascade sequence facility, whereby areas in immediate danger are evacuated first.


Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System (EWIS) have been designed to facilitate the orderly and speedy evacuation of a building in the event of an emergency. Alert and Evacuate warning tones are automatically escalated at predetermined times until the whole building is evacuated in an orderly manner.
This procedure may be initiated automatically by a fire alarm system or manually by a break glass call point.
At any time authorised Fire Wardens or Fire-fighting Personnel may take control of the EWS system An emergency public address microphone allows the broadcast of verbal messages to building occupants in all or selected areas via the zone loud speakers. The EWS System may be used as a fully automated system or it will allow Fire Wardens to easily control and co-ordinate an evacuation using the dedicated emergency telephone network.
Under non-emergency conditions the EWS system may be used to distribute background music and routine public address announcements.
