EAP activation system

I have begun working at a pool who's EAP activation system doesn't work.  The 3 whistles blasts that are supposed to start it can't be heard inside the building.  I am looking to get some emergency push buttons that the guards can push that will set off an alarm in the building.  Does anyone know of a system like this?  I have tried using airhorns, but they are also very hard to hear inside the building.See More

"So it appears, unfortunately, that the "Urban Myth" is still the majority consensus in the industry, despite all of the "non-incident" evidence. Maybe we should get in touch with the Myth Busters TV show."
