Fire and Life Safety


Building Systems

FourFortyFour South Flower is designed to offer maximum protection to its occupants. The Building is inspected and monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays. State of the art fire and life safety systems supplement existing security systems. These systems include:

  • A fire alarm panel which responds to public area and floor alarm conditions including smoke detectors and flow switches
  • A comprehensive sprinkler system
  • Pressurized stairwells that draw smoke from stair shafts
  • Multiple fire extinguishers on each floor
  • Elevators designed to stop at the next available floor in the event of an earthquake, or recall to the plaza level in the event of an alarm 
  • A rooftop helicopter pad for emergency landings
  • Fire evacuation maps on each floor
  • Building intercom system in the stairwells and elevators

Fire / Life Safety Program

Primary responsibility for the safety of Building occupants and compliance with fire codes rests with each Building tenant. All Building occupants are required to complete the Building’s Fire/Life Safety program within fourteen (14) days of commencing occupancy in the Building. Each firm is responsible for ensuring that all new employees comply with this requirement. Participation can be arranged through the Office of the Building. Emergency exit routes are posted in the elevator lobby of each floor. It is important for everyone in the Building to take responsibility by learning safety procedures, including evacuation routes in the Building.

Floor Wardens

Each tenant is required to appoint a suite monitor who will be responsible for coordinating the evacuation of the tenant firm. All floors must also appoint a floor warden and an alternate floor warden. On multi-tenant floors, one of the suite monitors will take on this role. The building’s emergency procedures are administered with these individuals under the direction of the Property Manager Floor warden training is provided through the Building’s Fire and Life Safety Training Program. The Floor Warden Manual can also be accessed through this program. In addition to information on fire emergencies, the Manual includes information and instructions for responding to other possible Building emergencies including bomb threats, civil disturbances, medical emergencies and earthquakes.
