An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. An exit sign is a fitting in a public place designating the location of the closest emergency exit in case of fire or other emergency. Combined, emergency & exit lights provide an emergency evacuation lighting system to assist building occupants to escape to the nearest exit in the event of an emergency or power failure. Region West Fire Control design, repair & maintain all types of Emergency Evacuation Lighting Systems to meet all legislative requirements in accordance with the BCA and Australian Standards. Emergency evacuation lighting systems are required to be routinely inspected and tested every six months in accordance with AS 2293.
