This event is activated by gaining ECS Control at a LOC and using the microphone without any ECS event
already active in the Manual ECS State. In this case, the Mic Triggered ECS Alarm mapping and General ECS
Alarm mapping will be activated and stay activated until a different ECS event is activated at the LOC or the user
resets the Emergency Communication System.

Only the fire system is active.
Both fire and the emergency systems are active and the highest priority active fire event is programmed to be
of higher priority than the highest priority active emergency event.

than the fire alarm.
Note: If fire and emergency systems are active and emergency system is of a higher priority, a fire page is NOT

the user has gained ECS Control.
This will trigger the ECS system and enable mapping for 'Mic Triggered ECS Alarm'
and 'General ECS Alarm'.
