VIDEO: A York County fire company has added a new piece of technology designed to provide real-time updates of nearby fire emergencies to drivers. Safety Cloud by HAAS Alert protects first responders and enhances driver compliance with Move Over laws by sending real-time notifications when approaching active responders en-route or on-scene, the West Manchester Township Fire Department said in a press release. The equipment has been added to all West Manchester Township Fire Department apparatus, Fire Chief Clifton Laughman said in the release. "The Safety Cloud service will help to reduce the risk of drivers colliding with first responders and workers in the field by providing advance warning of their presence and adding a digital component to lights and sirens that they’re less likely to miss," the fire department said.
