Traction Alternatives for Rescue Vehicles

Written by Maritza Hernandez,

First responders are trained professionals who are the first to arrive and provide assistance in rescue or emergency situations no matter the weather conditions.

Response time is a key factor for First Responders

One of the key factors for first responders is arriving in time. Response time has been discussed in several prior blogs specifically about how to reduce response time as this is critical to saving lives or property at risk. In addition to driver training and vehicle maintenance, providing critical equipment can help reduce response time.

Increase traction with tire chains

Slippery road conditions require increased traction to avoid getting stuck or sliding off the road. The most effective tool for safe travel in icy conditions are tire chains. Tire chains, manual or automatic, are intended to add traction to your vehicle during adverse driving conditions.

Manual tire chains require parking, leaving the cab and taking time to install the chains which can delay response time. With automatic tire chains, drivers avoid delays because the system is engaged from the safety of the cab while already in motion saving critical response time.
