First Responders- Operate safely in snow and ice

Written by Shane Woodman,

An emergency call just came in and they needed first responders present on scene. It’s the middle of winter and the snow is falling rapidly.

The roads are slick and not safe to be on. The snow and slick road do not matter to you, ‘the first responder’. Your task at hand is to get on scene as quickly and as safely as possible.  

This scenario happens every winter to so many first responders. Each time is as stressful as the last, but you pull through and do the best you can. You have elements to your vehicles that help make the drive to the scene safer. Some of these elements are at the tip of your fingertips, but maybe you were not trained in how to use them.  

We want to help make your stressful drive job easier. The chains hanging down by your rear tires are exactly that; one element of your vehicle that will make that drive easier. You can climb that mountain, move swiftly through the city streets, or maintain that comfortable speed on the highway with ease. Onspot automatic snow chains are the chains you see.
