Tanish Hospital is a multistorey building with a decade old construction. So, wiring will involve civil work. Also, the lengthy wiring was estimated to be 5 times the total cost of the system. It was clear that Tanish hospital needed completely wireless devices. The fact that the hospital is air conditioned makes it more vulnerable by trapping heat/smoke, making it difficult to detect and evacuate. In case of fire or emergency situation saving lives is the primary objective. Special care for non-ambulant patients is a must in case of accidental emergencies. Multiple ongoing activities at the same time, can’t be interrupted even for emergencies, such as surgeries or operations. There are a lot of utilities that can lead to fire in hospitals. ECG machines and MRI scanners can generate a lot of heat. Overheating of the machinery from ECG or MRI scanners, can cause short circuit or even the wires could start to melt, further leading to smoke and then to fire. In case a patient who is not healthy enough to walk or call for help, terrorist attacks or in any sort of emergency, alerting and dedicated evacuation is important. Since the building is already constructed, Tanish Hospital was looking for such a solution that could do no damage to the building whilst protecting it.
The Tanish Hospital wanted to know the remote location in case of emergency so the necessary steps could be taken quickly. One of the requirements of Tanish Hospital was to have early detection so the key stakeholders can contribute to life and property safety. Major design considerations for Tanish Hospital were safety, technical leverage, highly reliable system that could last longer with low maintenance and installation cost.
The consultant was given this task to find a solution that satisfied Tanish Hospital’s requirements completely. After analyzing the necessities, he recommended NFire Solution to Tanish Hospital as the perfect fit. NFire Solution is an ideal solution as it is highly scalable, cost effective and highly reliable. A site survey was conducted for Tanish Hospital by NFire Team.
NFire Solution is a smart integrated incidence management system. It minimizes complexities to increase the speed of communication. NFire Solution was implemented at Tanish Hospital. NFire provides the hospital with centralized monitoring by NFire Emergency Monitoring Service Centre as per their requirements.
The site survey was conducted by NFire Team. Tanish Hospital believes that the site survey was the most valuable part of this project as it gave them confidence on the recommendation of NFire by the consultant. Working with NFire Team on the site survey put into perspective that this process should be every hospital’s standard. They believe that NFire Team highlighted the risks/threats and assured NFire’s seamless functioning. Smoke sensors and MCPs were installed at the Tanish Hospital. NFire is a customizable solution with easy installation and minimal downtime. It causes no damage to the existing structure and saves a major cost compared to any conventional or wired addressable systems. NFire solution also brings other unique features like 24×7 monitoring, advance integration with IoT, Cloud computing, Mobile technology and communication technology. It is an easily upgradable future proof technology system for next generation smart fire stations. NFire feasibly reduces operational complexity and increases the incident response speed. It is highly stable, robust and built as per UL/BIS/NFPA specifications. Along with the live emergency monitoring service, notifications are sent via live call and SMS by NFire team of highly trained monitoring officers. NFire connect app makes it easy to access NFire alarm system from anywhere.
NFire has proved to be an ideal solution for Tanish Hospital. The hospital precisely experienced minimal cost for safeguarding their premises and their people. There was no lengthy wiring or masonry work which saved a lot of cost with fast installation. Live monitoring with pin point location of fire through an app is provided to the hospital as demanded. The system is cloud integrated, IoT operational and AI enabled with integrated communications. NFire Solution ultimately ensures that the building was safe and operational. Moreover, Tanish Hospital was able to achieve higher Returns of Investment (ROI) while experiencing minimal Total Cost of Investment (TCO) with the help of NFire Solution.
