“The attention to detail in the first place has meant that the operation is kept simple, very easy to use and has improved our reporting times. This gives me the comfort that when the Fire & Rescue Service arrive I am able to give them a true picture of what is happening”.Graham Taylor – Health & Safety Advisor for The National Archives
The National Archives’ (TNA) collection of over 11 million historical government and public records is one of the largest in the world. From the Domesday Book to modern government papers and digital files, their collection includes paper and parchment, electronic records and websites, photographs, posters, maps, drawings and paintings. Their role is to collect and secure the future of the government record, both digital and physical, to preserve it for generations to come, and to make it as accessible and available as possible.
In 2011, the responsibility for archives across England was transferred to The National Archives from the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). TNA performs the function of the Historical Manuscripts Commission in relation to private records. In addition their expertise in the effective management, use and re-use of information makes the TNA a valuable resource for 250 government and public sector bodies.

The process meant having a full appreciation of the building layout, the specialist departments within and how the evacuation zoning would work best for the building holistically. Now complete we are delighted to have been asked to supply TagEvac at this important and significant site.
