HAAS Alert will make life easier for rescuers

Techstars has unveiled its latest technology to help firefighters and medical rescuers work. The application called HAAS Alert will notify all drivers of the approach of the rescue vehicle, which will allow early clearance of the road.

In the work of medical rescuers or firefighters, it is important to get to the scene as quickly as possible, as every second of life saves life. Meanwhile crowded cities are drowning in traffic jams, so lifeguard vehicles have to break through, and that slows them down considerably.

Techstars has, however, developed a solution that can help a lot. It created a special mobile application called HAAS Alert, which in real time provides smartphones with notifications about upcoming rescue vehicles. So the driver can head to the side of the roadway early enough to pass an ambulance or guard car.

The principle of operation of the application is very simple. Each rescue vehicle has a HAAS Alert system that automatically sends notification to smartphone drivers equipped with this tool. Additionally, it also warns pedestrians and cyclists.
