2. Notify necessary staff for response for Health Care and High Rise buildings only (alarm signal may be
different on different floors). For Health Care, an adequate number, as a minimum, is considered to

buildings. Nonambulatory patients are considered to be those who are incapable of taking action for
self preservation under emergency conditions without assistance from others.
