As part of the ongoing programme of works, Bournemouth-based Drewlec, the electrical services arm of The Drewitt Group, is provided upgrades to the fire alarm system used within Poole Hospital.
The work carried out by Drewlec Electrical Services has included:
- Installation of new dedicated fire network cabling using fibre optic cables to cover the whole site, linking all network panels including remote sites such as St Mary’s Maternity Unit.
- Replacement of all main fire alarm equipment including fire panels, detectors, sounders and call points.
- Upgrade of the graphics system which enables users to see in real time on a large display screen the location of any fire alarm event across the site enabling faster response times.
- Providing detailed design advice and planning in a busy working hospital.
