Where seconds and minutes are valuable, often rescue services like hospitals/emergency rescue teams, police stations etc take time to choose, organize and route the appropriate emergency vehicle to the right spot in least time.
If the idea of bringing benefits by installing your trucks with GPS tracking devices sounds good to you, why not see an online demo on AVLView fleet automation system?
When there is an emergency, first thing authorities would want to do is get the nearest team on spot at the earliest. Trying to call all ambulance drivers on road to know their locations is not the right way to go about it; it takes time. With the help of GPS tracking devices installed in ambulances/fire trucks, you could find out the vehicles nearby the incident/accident location, just get the driver contact number and assign them the task.
If nearest vehicle to the incident/accident location is a bit far, you may want to know the best possible way to reach there quickly. Road traffic data could be of help, so you can just have a look @ the map and hand over the most optimum route to the location. This is also practical when emergency vehicles are heading back to medical service facilities. That’s right, GPS vehicle tracking can even save lives.
We don’t have to tell you how important the role of vehicle’s health in emergency services are. You cannot suffer a single breakdown or downtime, coz that may result in loss of human lives. Primary thing you should consider while buying a GPS tracking system for ambulances, fire trucks or any other emergency teams is, if the system you choose can notify you on its periodic services or scheduled maintenance.
High valued medicines/pharmaceutical drugs kept in fridges/freezers of ambulances could go useless with a minor temperature variation within. And what if you are finding it out at the time of an emergency and you are left without an alternative? You can avoid such instances by connecting the temperature sensors to get notified as soon as there’s a temperature variation.
