For those first responders who need to know building schematics and layout, a portable tablet PC is available. Gamewell-FCI has released FocalPoint Mobile, a wireless tablet PC that allows users to monitor multiple fire alarm systems in real-time. Providing information in text or graphic detail via CAD-type drawings, this wireless tablet enables facility managers, security personnel and emergency responders to quickly evaluate an emergency event and make prompt, informed decisions. The FocalPoint system displays custom, site-specific graphics, featuring genuine photographs of campuses and buildings, down to floor-by-floor layouts displaying locations of fire system components (i.e. heat detectors, pull stations, etc.). Information labels can also be applied to any screen, indicating building names, hazardous materials storage or possibly areas containing occupants requiring additional assistance.
