Fires cause mayhem and the only people who can deal with them effectively are the fire service. They put their lives on the line and engage in many dangerous activities in the name of public service. To help these valiant emergency workers, an EyeRide system can bring some important assistance to the firefighter in action and to those controlling and managing an emergency situation.
EyeRide can supply instant visual images of an emergency situation from inside and outside the vehicle. The two-way communication enables drivers to receive instructions and for the crew to be kept informed of developments while on route to a callout. EyeRide records the real-time video stream from every camera and provides an excellent basis for the production of training material for trainee firefighters.
Fire chiefs can also assess the safety of the emergency vehicle driver and should there be a collision on route to or from a callout, a sensor will immediately notify central control and allow reactive decisions to be made. The system also gives the Fire Service the ability to monitor the effectiveness of firefighters, making sure that they follow appropriate protocols and regulations.
It is not uncommon for multiple callouts to take place simultaneously. The visibility of the surrounding environment offers the opportunity for controllers to make on-the-spot decisions about what equipment should be allocated to the callouts in hand. As a fire tender arrives at an emergency scene, the view from the cameras will assist the controllers in assessing the seriousness of the situation and assist them in more effective resource management.
Installing EyeRide to fire service vehicles gives those managing resources more information and therefore more options – rather than simply being viewed as a surveillance device, it can become a valuable part of the emergency response management process.
Call us and we will be happy to demonstrate further how EyeRide is a very cost-effective and useful management tool for any emergency service vehicle.
