Industrial fire on Hampshire estate injures firefighters
Several explosions and a powerful fire on the industrial estate in Cracknore Hard, Marchwood, Hampshire have left 4 firefighters injured, a recent news report on the matter was able to reveal.
Six fire crews were called to the blaze, with four firefighters being treated at the scene for minor injuries and one being taken to Southampton General Hospital with a minor leg injury. The injuries occurred when several oxyacetylene cylinders located on the premises exploded.
A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: “Several explosions were reported due to the presence of oxyacetylene cylinders in the building, no-one was seriously hurt in the incident.”
Every company whose specific area of activity involves highly dangerous materials should consider developing and implementing complete and comprehensive Fire Roll Call solutions, and this is specifically where Tensor can lend a helping hand, given our extensive experience in setting-up access control systems featuring Fire Roll Call functionality.
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.
