In a building which requires 2-way communications systems for fire fighters and also 2-way communication for occupant use in refuge areas, can one communication system provide both functions? 


NFPA 101 requires high rise buildings to have 2 way communications for fire department use and also requires accessible refuge areas to have 2 way communication so occupants can request assistance in an emergency.
