First Response To Fire Alarm – DR BYEN

DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) is Denmark’s oldest and largest electronic media enterprise. DR employs 3,500 people and more than half of them work in the Copenhagen area.

In 2006 DR moved all of its scattered activities in Copenhagen to a brand new building complex called DR Byen. The center is 6 floors high and covers around 125,000m2. That is a gigantic area equal to 11 football fields.

DR Byen has a very advanced fire detection system from the Swedish company Salwico. Indeed, in the whole complex, there is a huge number of 8,000 fire sensors installed.
