What is a Manual Call Point? 

Manual Call Points (MCP) are devices that are used to manually trigger the fire alarm system. It is to be used only after the confirmation of existence of  fire in the building. They can also be used at the time of other potential threats such as terrorism, earthquakes etc. to alert the occupants for immediate evacuation. 

Where & how should a Manual Call Points be installed?

MCPs should be installed at exit prone areas of the building that include staircases, escape routes, against main doors and corridors.

They should be positioned such that no person travels beyond 12 meters to activate the nearest call point. Or, there should be a maximum gap of 24 meters between two nearest call points.

They should also be mounted at a height of about 1.5 meters from the floor to ease actuation.
