Collision prevention safety service sends digital alerts to motorists when responding fire trucks are nearby.
CHICAGO, May 2, 2018 -- HAAS Alert, a Chicago-based startup whose mission is to make roadways safer, announced it has entered into a multi-year agreement with REV Group's Fire division to include the HAAS Alert Safety Cloud™ service on new fire apparatus manufactured by the E-ONE, Ferrara and KME brands. HAAS Alert provides Responder-to-Vehicle (R2V) safety services to first responders and has changed how fire departments protect their crews and the public. Trucks equipped with R2V will have the ability to alert nearby motorists, to aid in preventing collisions and enabling safer and faster emergency response.
"The HAAS Alert Responder-to-Vehicle (R2V) service protects first responders and motorists by delivering real-time alerts to drivers and connected cars via smartphone apps and in-vehicle systems when emergency vehicles are nearby. This partnership with REV Group's fire division will allow more fire departments to introduce R2V real-time alerts into their communities, protecting the lives of those who are protecting us," said Cory Hohs, CEO of HAAS Alert.
Jay Johnson, Vice President, Product Management, Marketing, and After-Market of Rev Group's fire division commented, "HAAS Alert's R2V service aligns perfectly with our commitment to fleet and crew safety. Fire Departments are always looking for ways to make their communities safer and they turn to E-ONE, Ferrara and KME to help make that happen."
