Default Conn. and call for aid station in bathroom

Is there some bldg. code local to Connecticut which requires this in bathrooms. I'm in the middle of a retail fit up and there was an existing setup and prints call for a new one. Also noticing the same setup at alot of other places like this. Just an edwards a/v device outside restroom, and a lv switch with string adjacent to toilet. Don't see this much elsewhere aside from hospitals and nursing homes...just curious

When I worked at a place in CT, we joked around by pulling the string while using the bathroom.
