VIDEO: The Duluth Fire Department recently put a new Quint 4 apparatus into service with two features unique to the vehicle. “One is the HAAS safety cloud. It’s an alerting system that alerts drivers that are using Apple maps, or if you’re using Waze, or if you have a Jeep, Chrysler or Dodge make that’s 2008 or newer, this system will actually alert you when the fire truck is approaching you,” explained Deputy Chief Mike Consie. “So it calculates rates to determine if the fire truck and your vehicle will actually intersect, whether it’s head on or to the side and it alerts the driver, it will tone down your stereo and it will actually pop up an alert saying ‘warning, emergency vehicle approaching’.” Once the Quint 4 arrives on scene and is placed in park, the vehicle will automatically set a geofence up around it.
