Wesley Hospital


Brisbane's Wesley Hospital has 530 beds and more than 2,000 staff providing a large range of clinical services including 24-hour emergency care. The Pertronic FireMap system supervises four fire alarm panels including three Pertronic F120A systems. "Before we replaced our old system with Pertronic panels and FireMap, we were getting about 55 nuisance alarms per year" said Wesley Hospital Fire Safety Manager Stephen McCann. "Nuisance alarms were affecting patient care. Fire brigade callout fees were costing more than $50,000 per year. With FireMap we have less than ten nuisance alarms per year."
