Rescue Driving; How to be Efficient in Winter

Written by Lucas Gulino,

In your profession, driving a vehicle is not just a mode of transportation, it’s one of the tools that allows you to save lives. As such, your vehicle must be equipped with the best equipment to get the job done.

In a previous article, we discussed snow chains for emergency vehicles and offered a comparison of their pros and cons.

3 professions, one requirement.

If there is one thing in common among the police, ambulance, and firefighters, it’s the necessity for short response time. You must be ready to take the road to help save lives as quickly as possible. No matter the traffic, the weather, or the nature of the emergency. Your mission is your priority!

The balance of speed and safety

When winter hits, visibility, poor driving conditions, cold, snow or even ice (if not all 3 at the same time), make it difficult to respond to calls even though you do not have the choice. You must arrive safely, maybe to save a life!

Now, imagine yourself in these winter weather conditions. Would you be ready to get out of the cab? To take heavy manual chains and put them on the tires? To remove them when necessary?

You could, but you would waste precious response time that could make it difficult to save a life...

- Flip the switch for safety -

To overcome this feeling of insecurity and the loss of valuable time, we have developed for decades an automatic tire chain system that will get you out of risky situations. With Onspot, simply flip a switch located in the cab to get a grip when you need it.
