Fire Roll Call is a Key Feature to Help Streamline Emergency Evacuations
A Fire Roll Call module integrated within the time and attendance or access control system should be a priority for any organization in the educational segment, where the safe and orderly evacuation of students is of utmost importance.
This type of emergency situationhas recently occurred at Bitterne Park School in Southampton, where an emergency evacuation was triggered after munitions were discovered on the premises. In total 1,100 students from years seven to ten were evacuated for about 40 minutes.
The ten inch tip of a shell was brought in by a year eight pupil keen to contribute to the school’s commemorations of the Battle of the Somme.
Having found the item on a family trip to a Dorset firing range at the weekend, he brought it in as part of an “alternative history lesson,” head teacher Susan Trigger said.
Tensor fire roll call ensures pupils and staff are safely evacuated in case of an emergency
Safety is ensured when Tensor clocks and Access Control units are linked into your organization’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.
