When emergencies or fire accidents happen, there is always a need of firefighters and the rescue team to reach the scene quickly to minimize the loss and damage. I’s their duty to reach the area within minutes putting them in great danger on the road. Paramedics also travels in their killer weapon, ambulance, at high speeds; both are design to relief and support with challenging and hazardous situations, yet, it’s probably the second road killer next to drinking and driving.
Road accident disputes aren’t the only threat that these everyday hero faces, at the scene, firefighters are put into greater task in combatting with the flame of beast! It requires them to travel on turntable ladder, which allows them to rotate and reach into different areas, others go on the hydraulic platform, which lifts them high above the fire truck and can extend over a roof top to have a better angle in quenching the fire; however, the water hose or water cannons can be quiet tough to control from high above when high water pressure is pumping out the hose, which increases the risk of these heroes’ life. A security surveillance system install can monitor the safety of everyone on site, act as evidence and clarify situations shall there is a dispute, moreover, it allows management to see the live scene instantly and act quickly when decisions need to be made (such as sending in more reinforcements).
- Providing instant live views on moving vehicle to management office and the driver’s dashboard. Moreover, getting the “entire fleet” recording data transfer back to the management office
- Constant vibration on the moving vehicle, which drastically reduces the lifespan of the recording device.
- The extreme temperatures especially close to the fire incident scene, on the vehicle. Difference in temperature between the day and night versus season weather. Direct sunshine and bad ventilation all can be the source of the cause for failed system and inactive components.
- Unstable source of power and sudden electric spikes to the recording device on the vehicle which can result to electronic shortage and causing the unit to malfunction.
