FireNET is a modular next generation Station End Equipment (SEE) designed for installation within a fire station and offers a complete set of mobilisation functions, facilities and interfaces for the reliable and rapid turnout of personnel and appliances. FireNET receives dispatch requests from the Command & Control Centre, either direct from the operator position or the Communications Processor.
The system consists of a main controller unit (with no moving parts) and a plug in I/O module. FireNet has been designed as a small wall-mounted enclosure with an inherent 8 hour stand-by battery. There is also an optional stand-by power capability of up to 48 hours, if required, that is housed separately. The benefits of a Remsdaq FireNet SEMS solution include:
Optional modules include: electronic Time & Attendance and payroll data transfer. FireNet can also be tailored to accommodate the various needs of each fire station within a Fire and Rescue Service. Various communication bearers can be chosen that are most suitable for individual stations. FireNet can also activate a variety of equipment suited to the different needs of Wholetime, Day Crew and Retained stations. The built-in two-door, access control system is time-stamped and can be used to collect information such as personnel attendance (at the fire station or incident) and the asset tracking of equipment.
Other external peripheral devices include:
FireNet is fully compatible with the Remsdaq Rescue4i Control Room solution and is also suitable for integration with third party Command and Control systems.
