The 13 firefighters from Redbridge Fire Station who arrived at the scene used a hosereel, one covering jet and wore two breathing apparatus equipment, as they had to deal with fumes from epoxy resin, a news report in the local media can reveal.

A spokesman for the Fire Station, said that that it had the potential to be ‘much worse’ as there were propane cylinders inside the factory, which could have been set alight.

In order to provide further peace of mind for our customers, Tensor has decided to implement a top-quality Fire Roll Call feature within all of our Time & Attendance and Access Control systems.

Our 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 feature 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.
