Gas leak leads to emergency evacuation of busy shop in Wigan
A major gas leak has led to the emergency evacuation of a very busy shop in Wigan in early August, a news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Fire crews were dispatched to the Co-operative store on Gathurst Road, Shevington, after shoppers reported smell of gas in store. All members of staff and customers were immediately evacuated as experts worked to locate the leak.
The store was closed for more than three hours, crews used a fan to disperse the gas which was found to be coming from the refrigerator tank.
Tensor fire roll call – the perfect solution for fast and orderly emergency evacuation
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 emergency 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.
