Ecco Safety Group, which includes the Code 3 brand, has launched its innovative Connected Safety Solution powered by the HAAS Alert Safety Cloud.
Today, lights and sirens alone are not enough to get the attention of distracted drivers. With innovation in mobile and cloud technology, motorists now have enhanced capabilities to receive advanced warnings and urgent road hazard information.
HAAS Alert's collision prevention technology paired with Code 3's lineup of reliable lighting and safety solutions — including its flagship Matrix system — sends digital alerts that warn drivers of nearby public safety vehicles responding to an emergency. Drivers are notified through the Waze app on their mobile devices, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or compatible vehicle infotainment systems.
“Code 3 is all about innovating safety solutions for our first responders. By adding HAAS Alert collision prevention technology to our market-leading vehicle lighting solutions, Code 3 customers and civilians using the Waze app will have an extended layer of safety and security,” said Doug Phillips, president and CEO of ESG.
“The number of first responder fatalities and injuries in 2019 due to collisions with other vehicles is alarming and shows no signs of slowing down,” noted Co-founder and CEO of HAAS Alert Cory Hohs. “As a company committed to making our roads safer for everyone, we are excited to work with an innovator like Code 3 to bring HAAS Alert’s digital safety service to more emergency response and fleet vehicles.”
