The Station End Mobilising System (SEMS) equipment is located within the fire station and receives dispatch requests from the Command & Control Centre, either direct from the operator position or the Communications Processor.
Remsdaq recently launched FireNET, a modular next generation SEMS that offers a complete set of mobilising functions, facilities and interfaces for the reliable and rapid turnout of personnel and appliances.
FireNET consists of a main controller unit (with no moving parts) and a plug in I/O module. It has been designed as a small wall-mounted enclosure with an inherent 8 hour stand-by battery (there is also an optional stand-by power capability of up to 48 hours, if required, that is housed separately.)
The system is fully compatible with the Remsdaq Control Room solution and also suitable for integration with third party command and control systems.
Remsdaq FireNET features include:
- Uniquely expandable system architecture
- Distributed processing
- External system gateways
- Wide Area Network capability
- Interfaces to alerter / paging systems
- Fully British Home Office GD92 compliant
- Firelink (Airwave) compatible
- Emailed diagnostics
- Multiple printers Support of 'crew ack', turnout print and admin print request buttons, bells, lights and PA tones etc.

Optional modules for electronic Time & Attendance and payroll data transfer FireNET can also be tailored to accommodate the various needs of each fire station within a Fire and Rescue Service. Various communication bearers can be chosen that are most suitable for individual stations. FireNET can also activate a variety of equipment suited to the different needs of Wholetime, Day Crew and Retained stations.
Benefits of a Remsdaq FireNET SEMS Solution:
