Fire Roll Call (FRC) App
Fire roll call systems
Streamline how your businesses handle emergency scenarios such as fire drills - no more paper rotas or disorganisation. Tensor’s Fire Roll Call app, along with our time and attendance systems, have been designed to ensure that all personnel are accounted for in the palm of your fire warden’s hand.
This app configures compatible Android and iOS 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.
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.
Versatile and streamlined
Fire marshals can use the FRC to check whether employees have booked themselves on/off-site and mark them as accounted for upon visual confirmation of their safety status. 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), the Fire Roll Call app helps ensure your staff and visitors’ safety in case of any emergency evacuation. Let us help you ensure your business is prepared.

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.

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.
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.

Case study: Thomas Swan
With the move in 1999, Thomas Swan looked for an integrated, computerised access control and fire roll call system for the new factory. They wanted to bolster security to ensure that no unauthorised person could enter the building. Additionally, they also wanted an easy way to account for all employees and visitors on site.
