Automist PPS and Smoke Alarms
An excellent example of how a modern Fire Service is utilising Orion smart solutions is our work with Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service (DWfire). The Fire Service has integrated our Orion tags into two automist PPS and smoke alarm devices situated in local housing where vulnerable members of the community reside. Personal protection systems can be deployed fast amongst those members of the community who require them most and the fire department receives instant alerts when these members of the community require immediate assistance.
NFC Group has also fitted Orion GPS tags to firefighters’ helmets, other high value assets and equipment to track firefighters and the equipment they use for better health, safety and efficiency on a call out.
Orion provides DWfire will a 360 degree view of what is happening within the fire station and at every incident. Our solutions give insight into any bottlenecks in fire station procedures and allows the fire station to continually improve its service. It also enables predictive maintenance and automatic ordering of spare parts to make sure that all equipment is up to date and ready for an emergency.
