A future-proofed system was a key factor in the Naval Service’s decision to work with Sigteq. Over time the Navy has plans to connect its multiple fire alarms located around Cork Naval Base. All of its legacy fire alarms currently operate independently of each other, with different equipment makes, models and configurations. This means oversight can be a challenge. By linking all non-standard fire alarms and integrating all fire panels into the AlertNet system, the Navy can gain complete control over its fire alert and notification process across its base.
In addition, the Naval Service has plans to introduce a Man Overboard system where buttons located on the decks of its ships would be linked into the AlertNet system. Each button would be associated with a specific location on the ship, allowing for crew members to react quickly, at the right location to a man overboard situation.
“Working with Sigteq, we’ve been impressed by the can do attitude the team display. For each scenario we have discussed they have been quick to suggest a solution. And then they have the expertise to make it all work,” concluded the OIC CTS.
