French term or phrase: façade secourue
This is about emergency services access to a building. According to the regulations: "les voies parallèles doivent se situer entre 8 et 1 m de la façade secourue". I am not sure whether "secourue" covers only the rescue of people from that facade of the building, or whether it also covers other activities by the emergency services (e.g. extinguishing fires) that concern rescuing property rather than people. While this might not make much difference to how I would translate it, it would still be useful to know.

Emergency Exit

Hi D B Finch, I think it would be better if you provided a bit more context, for me it sounds like an emergency exit but not sure...
