Fire roll call systems can help streamline personnel evacuation in case of an emergency
A solid and reliable fire roll call system designed to streamline the evacuation of personnel in case of an emergency (such as an industrial fire) is a vital, life-saving measure for any firm, especially those from the industrial and manufacturing segment.
That was precisely the case with an industrial fire that broke out at Moray Precast Ltd on Ashgrove Road, Elgin a few days ago. Six fire teams were called in to tackle the blaze that evening and local residents were advised to shut windows and doors due to asbestos in the roof of the warehouse.
The road around the industrial estate was closed in order to allow access for fire appliances and the fire was contained with minimal material damages and no injuries to either fire crew members or personnel.
Fire Roll Call systems help you evacuate employees faster in case of an emergency
Tensor has implemented a top-quality Fire Roll Call feature within all of our Time & Attendance and Access Control systems.
Our Fire Roll Call systems 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.
Plus, 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.
If you’d like to find out more about the Fire Roll Call systems implemented as a part of the Tensor Time & Attendance and Access Control systems, just contact us or Book a Demo, our representatives will be more than happy to answer any and all of your queries.
