How telematics can optimize the performance of first responder vehicles?

For organizations managing their fleet around the clock for an emergency response such as first responders, and public works, also needs the telematics for their own safety. Due to the heightened sense of responsibility sometimes these first respondents fail to take the right precautions for themselves when they are behind the wheel. 

According to the crash data examined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the United States, unfortunately, the frequency of crashes involving ambulances, firetrucks and police vehicles happens more often than we might think. The most common cause found for these incidents was the excessive speed and inadequate seatbelt use.

Telematics, GIS (geographic information systems) mapping, GPS and cellular communications are already extensively used by organizations involved in fleet operations to smooth down their day-to-day operations. Now they can also be used as in guiding teams, tracking progress and assigning workers in the aftermath of blizzards, thunderstorms, floods, heatwaves, and events where the public’s safety is a concern. Tying these technologies together is fleet management that not only saves time by providing real-time information about location, weather conditions, traffic conditions but also provides the performance analytics that can be beneficial for on-the-spot resource deployment decisions as well as for the preparation of future events.

With Eagle-I fleet management solution, driver behavior can be monitored to ensure the safety of the response time along with these alerts can be issued about the status of seat belt and any speed violation. 

Fleet managers can also use fleet management software for keeping the schedule of vehicle maintenance, and can also identify the problem before the vehicle’s breakdown by using OBD data. Moreover, the fleet managers can keep the record of the utilization of an asset by using the software and important decisions can be made about under-utilized or over-utilized assets. The implementation of telematics will make sure you are ready to deploy your fleet in case of an emergency. 

Telematics solution such as Eagle-I ensures the data aids in every aspect of the emergency response team and assures the work to happen coherently and in sync, enabling the rapid response.
