Area of Refuge

        So Me and a friend were wandering around campus after class, avoiding the rain by moving from building to building. When we began to explore the basement of the communications building(Building dedicated to Com and CS classes) When we came across a flight of stairs and found this little gem in the bottom.



     Whats this? a mysterious door! upon closer inspection we discovered that next to the door was a panel containing a big red button and a sign reading AREA OF REFUGE in big red letters. One can only assume that this is where you run when you are being pursued by rapists and murderers(or murdering rapists).

  5. I know this is way old, but thought I would comment for the benefit of anyone stumbling across this like me. An area of refuge is an area that is required for disabled occupants of building to be able to wait safely for rescue in case of a fire. In this case the stairwell is fire rated and the big red button is a radio that allows the person to communicate with first responders and let them know where they are. They are a relatively new thing in building code.
