Whether it's low visibility around a fire engine, or the difficulties in retrieving footage while vehicles are still on the roads, the fire service is presented with various challenges when it comes to maintaining road safety while ensuring operations run efficiently.
This is why it's a good idea for fleet managers to invest in vehicle safety technology that is efficient, reliable and accurate so that staff have all the tools they need to minimise road risk.
What are the benefits of our vehicle CCTV and telematics solution for fire service fleets?
Greater visibility around a vehicle
Cameras enable drivers to manoeuvre with more awareness and prevent accidents involving other road users caused by blind spots.
Increase efficiency of operations
Remotely download footage, track a vehicle in real-time, replay trips, and check the health status of hardware to keep on top of fleet operations
Protects crew members
Cameras around a vehicle can defend staff from false claims and complaints made against them, as well as deter aggressive behaviour.
Enhance fleet performance
Build up an accurate picture of how a fleet is performing by exporting driver behaviour reports and viewing vehicle data for a particular vehicle type.
