Adrz improves fire safety by using a wireless hospital evacuation system.
Adrz is a regional hospital in the Netherlands that offers care at several locations in the Dutch province “Zeeland”. As an inspection body specialized in fire safety, Kiwa has issued an inspection certificate for a wireless Cloud-based NEN2575-4 evacuation system. With this certificate, the hospital demonstrates that the alarm system complies with applicable Dutch and European legal requirements. There are alarms on smartphones.
Pagers vs. App
Emergency Response Coordinator of the Adrz Pieter Tramper:
“Thanks to some built-in controls, the app is much more reliable than the pagers we used before. The new solution provides more certainty that our company emergency organization can act quickly.”
Project leader Herman de Grave:
“MultiBel is a professional software supplier, with short communication lines that makes it possible to act quick. Their evacuation alarm solution perfectly matched our needs and could easily be set up and adapted to our requirements and wishes. They continuously think along in solutions and have all the expertise in-house to quickly implement desired adjustments. As a result, we were able to implement the system in a short time and get it successfully certified.”
The K21047 certification scheme has been drawn up for companies that wish to obtain certification for installing and maintaining wireless silent alarm systems. In that sector, a good evacuation system is of vital importance because patients or residents are not self-reliant or are unable to flee themselves. That is why they are legally obliged to have a NEN 2575-4 certified silent alarm evacuation system.
