Business fire roll call function executed directly from clocking stations
The need to save £8 million over the next four years has prompted Dorset, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue to discuss sharing resources. Chair of Devon and Somerset Fire Authority Mark Healey said of the plans: "This will not affect firefighters and back office services at that level, it is at senior management level and is about collaborative working between fire services.” He continued: “We find it an exciting move." Senior managers have met and given provisional approval to the proposals.
Tensor's security and clocking products can be integrated with fire roll call software that will automatically generate a report in the event of a fire or other emergency. In such an evacuation situation, the instantaneous reports contain the crucial safety information concerning who is on site. Unlike most other systems, this function is executed directly from the clocking stations and does not rely on the controlling PC or computer infrastructure. The fire roll call software announces the emergency while simultaneously activating your existing warning system.
