Fire roll call keeps staff safe in emergency situations
Up to 25 firefighters tackled large fire at an industrial estate in South Lanarkshire that broke out shortly before midnight on Sunday, a recent news report in the local media has revealed.
The blaze errupted in a warehouse at the Farme Castle Estate in Rutherglen that was thought to contain about 30 vehicles with a risk that the blaze may spread to their fuel tanks.
A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said the blaze had been brought under control, with one vehicle remaining at the scene to dampen down hotspots.
Tensor fire roll call – a life-saving feature when emergency staff evacuation is required
Safety is ensured when Tensor clocks and Access Control units are linked into your company’s fire alarm system to trigger a fast, automated fire evacuation list.
The T8526 can control up to two printers for evacuation reporting purposes. On activation of a fire alarm panel, automatic roll-call reports are printed listing the names and departments of cardholders who remain on-site. In addition, doors can be configured to open automatically on fire alarm activation and lock automatically once the fire alarm activation condition has ceased.
Reports can be grouped by a cardholder’s default resident fire point or by the fire point that they are currently booked on to. Printers are connected either via a direct cable connection or by direct IP and can be limited to reporting upon specific zones or fire points.
Muster points can also be installed where cardholders scan upon arrival at a Muster point. In real-time, Tensor.NET Access removes the cardholder from the fire roll-call report to provide a real-time roll call of any cardholders who remain in the building.
