The Fire Alarm Roll Call is, in effect, an on-the-spot register, where those tasked with running them confirm who is present and who is missing. The Roll Call(s) that you have permission to run will have been set up by your System Administrator.
This guide will walk you through:
We will assume, for the sake of this guide, that the Roll Call will be carried out on a mobile phone or other handheld device.
The quickest method is to set up a shortcut on your Home Screen that will take you directly to the Roll Call once you have logged in.
The employees will appear in list form and the background behind their names will be red.
If you make a mistake, simply select the tick-box again, which will change the employee’s status from present to unknown or vice versa.
You do not need to do anything at this point. The person who is running the Roll Call Monitor will decide when your Roll Call is finished. Only then should you close your Roll Call window.
If you close the window, Focus will class the Roll Call as being finished. Opening the window again will have the result of creating a new Roll Call and all employee names will have a red background once more.
You will have your own procedures for ensuring unknown team members are safely accounted for. The Roll Call Monitor can help with this.
Use the Roll Call Monitor to collate the information of every individual Roll Call you have running.
Create interactive checklists for your Fire Officers to use as Roll Calls in the event of an evacuation.
