The fire protection system at Victoria covers the entire concourse area, 19 platforms, all retail outlets & storage units, basement plant areas, and four floors of administrative offices.
In case of fire, the system will activate voice alarm messages, evacuation signals and exit route signage throughout all areas, and set up communication with systems in adjoining buildings. It will control lifts, stop escalators, turn off music systems in shops, shut down boilers and other plant, initiate sprinklers & pumps, activate backup power supplies, and open emergency exits.
