Number of fire-related incidents soars by 50% across Teesside
Figures announced by the Cleveland Fire Brigade show that the number of fire-related incidents across the Teesside region soared by over 50% last year, according to a news report on this matter published in the local media.
In the nine months to December 31, 2013, the number of fires soared by 54% to 1,074 – costing the economy an estimated £9.7m, while the figures taken from Cleveland Fire Brigade’s latest quarterly report also showed the number of arsons on Teesside rose by almost 60% to 2,219, while there was a 70% increase in deliberate secondary fires and a 24% rise in industrial/ commercial fires – including the massive blaze at UK Wood Recycling’s Wilton site, which flared on December 23 and burned for 16 days.
In order to mitigate for the occurrence of such potentially dangerous situations, Tensor has implemented 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.
