MRT-3’s ‘improved’ emergency fire safety system passed the test
The Metro Train Transit Line 3 (MRT-3improved )’s fire detection and alarm system passed its functional testing on Tuesday, according to rail management.
The MRT-3 stated in a Facebook post that it has completed functional testing of its freshly replenished carbon dioxide (CO2) tanks, which link to the powerhouse of every station and signaling room.
“Katatapos lang ng matagumpay na functional testing, o pag-alam kung gumagana at walang aberya ang mga bagong refilled na CO2 tanks sa CO2 room sa mga MRT-3 istasyon,” it added.
The CO2 tanks, according to the MRT-3, function as a fire extinguisher in the event that smoke or fire is discovered.
It went on to say that a well-functioning CO2 chamber is an important component of the fire detection and alarm system for ensuring accident-free line operation and passenger safety.
“Ang updating ng safety and security systems ay bahagi ng malawak at komprehensibong rehabilitasyon ng MRT-3, sa direktiba ni DOTr Secretary Art Tugade,” the MRT-3 stated.
