Drivers in Largo can now receive real-time digital alerts when fire apparatus is active nearby through a new service added to all Largo Fire Rescue vehicles.
Safety Cloud by HAAS Alert protects first responders and roadway fleets from accidents involving inattentive drivers and improves a driver's compliance with "Move Over" law by sending real-time notifications to drivers approaching active responders en route or at a scene.
The service reduces the risk of drivers colliding with responders by adding a digital component to lights and sirens. Drivers can receive the alerts through the Waze navigation app, available on mobile devices and in the dashboard of many newer-model vehicles.
HAAS Alert is working to expand the alerts to other services and vehicles so that all drivers can receive these road safety alerts.
