Tensor Fire Roll Call App

Fire roll call software & systems for businesses

The Tensor Fire Roll Call app (Tensor FRC) configures compatible iOS and Android touchscreen devices to work as an electronic, portable fire roll call register for emergency evacuations.

The app provides real-time information on people’s location on-site and their safety status. It intended to replace the checking of a paper-based register of on-site personnel and to ensure that all members of staff and/or visitors are accounted for.

Fire marshals can use Tensor FRC to check whether employees have booked themselves on/off-site and mark them as accounted for upon visual confirmation of their safety status. Furthermore, should any employees and/or visitors remain unaccounted for, they can be contacted straight from their profiles stored on the app.

Working in conjunction with the Tensor SSM (Self-Service Module) in Tensor.NET, the Fire Roll Call app helps ensure your staff and visitors’ safety in case of an emergency evacuation.

Tensor Fire Roll Call App - Usage Scenarios

The Tensor Fire Roll Call app has been designed to ensure that all personnel are accounted for. When a person is identified as being in a safe location, such as their fire assembly point, they can be marked as accounted for using the app.

Using this functionality, the FRC app can be integrated with evacuation scenarios in the following ways:

  • Personnel is marked as accounted for when exiting the premises – in this scenario scanners are usually installed outside, and at a distance from, a building. On fire alarm evacuation, employees book off-site at these remote 'muster point' scanners. The fire marshal browses the unaccounted for list of employees still on site. Any personnel listed in the app are deemed to be on-site and at risk
  • Personnel exit the premises – in this scenario, on fire alarm evacuation, employees assemble at their assigned fire point. The fire marshal identifies each assembled person and marks them as accounted for on the FRC app. Any personnel remaining on the app’s list are deemed to be on-site and at risk

After a fire assembly point is selected, the Tensor FRC app displays the 'Unaccounted For' tab on the main fire roll call page. The 'Unaccounted For' tab lists all the employees and visitors that are booked on site and assigned to the selected fire point.

Personnel is listed alphabetically by surname, with their 'type' (employee, visitor, contractor or visiting employee) shown underneath their forename and surname.

Search

Tap the search icon to quickly search for a person by name. A search box is revealed, and you can type in all or part of a person’s surname. The unaccounted for list is then re-displayed filtered with matching entries. Only surnames are filtered, starting from the first letter of the surname.

List Filtering

The list of personnel in both the unaccounted for and accounted for tabs can be filtered by tapping on the filter icon. The filter page consists of two sections, 'Filter By' and 'Booked Off Period'.

Filter By

The 'Filter By' section lists the four available person types. Tick or untick any combination of types and then tap save to filter the lists of on and off site personnel accordingly.

Booked Off Period

Personnel appearing in the booked off list can be limited by the amount of time that has elapsed since the person left the site. Tap on the link indicated to the right and select a period ranging from 15 minutes to 23 hours.

List refresh

Both lists of on and off site personnel may be updated by refreshing the app’s page. This can be done by tapping the refresh icon provided in the fire point title row. The displayed information can also be refreshed, when at the top of the page, by dragging the page down and then releasing it.

List of personnel accounted for

The 'Accounted For' tab always lists all personnel, regardless of the fire point selected, who have booked off-site within the selected time period.
