05 Mar Scripps Green Hospital Selects Electronic Control Systems for New State-of-the-Art Fire Alarm System Installation
Poway, CA – March 5, 2015 – Electronic Control Systems, a division of Albireo Energy, today announced the award of the project to completely install a new fire alarm system for Scripps Green Hospital in La Jolla, California. This bid was awarded based on proposed schedule and proven expertise on completing a fire alarm system replacement project with very similar scope for Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, which ECS recently completed. Like this project, that installation took place while the hospital was operational, working closely with hospital staff on a room by room basis to avoid disruptions in day-to-day operations and ensure patient satisfaction and safety.
“Scripps Health is such an important part of the San Diego community and we are honored to have been selected to work with them on this forward-thinking project,” stated Zbigniew Cabaj, Division President of Electronic Control Systems.” “Hospitals create unique challenges and opportunities to integrate life safety, energy management and low voltage systems. With our experience in smart building technologies, ECS is positioned to provide a seamless installation that will integrate HVAC and fire systems to disable ventilation during a fire emergency.”
Every fire alarm system has an average lifecycle, and Scripps Green recognized that their existing system was nearing maturity. To ensure the safety of patients and staff, Scripps Green took a proactive approach to replace the system before critical issues arose. The newly designed system will both alert and evacuate the hospital in the event of a fire, and prevent false alarms that disrupt hospital productivity ultimately improving patient care, reducing costs and improving the bottom line.
