Fire & Rescue Fair -What do firefighters say about Onspot?

Written by Eric Carlebom,

When we recently exhibited at the "Fire and Rescue Fair in Västervik" (in Sweden), we did get many questions about Onspot. One of the questions were "can automatic snow chains be used in the summer"?

To be able to visit and exhibit at fairs after the long pandemic is something we have been looking forward to and missed. All the information that we receives from the users, in this case firefighters, is very valuable for our development and knowledge. 

Working as a firefighter can be a challenging and demanding job:
The tasks are varied and one day is often not like the other. Everything from maintaining and testing equipment on the fire trucks is included in the work. Having a good strength and conditioning is also important as the work is physically demanding. 

When the alarm goes off, time is of the essence:
Getting your protective clothing on and jumping into the fire truck has to go fast. Emergency response time is very important and nothing should go wrong that can cause delays. Having the right equipment on your fire truck is important and that you are trained on using the vehicle and the extra equipment. Equipment that can help you reach your destination faster and minimize the risk of delays.

Truck equipment: 
A fire truck today is high-tech with a lot of features and equipment, from the simplest shovel to advanced gps systems. It is important that it is easy to use the equipment. The automatic snow chains are permanently mounted on the vehicle and are easily activated by a pushing a button on the dashboard. The system activates quickly and you can pass the obstacles,  and YES:

Onspot can be used in the summer when it is muddy on the road or lawn to increase accessibility.

What, then, do firefighters think of our automatic snow chains?
We've interviewed the firefighters and put together a video of their experiences and why it's a good idea to have automatic snow chains on the fire truck. Want to know more and watch the video? Click the button below:
