HAAS Alert's digital alerting solution Safety Cloud is a breakthrough evolution in emergency alerting, bringing critical real-time connectivity to roads and transforming emergency alerting for a new century. Emergency lights have been the primary tool used by emergency fleets and road operators to notify drivers since the early 20th century. As roads grew busier and car cabins became quieter over time, though, emergency lights have become less effective. Despite the passage of Move Over laws and responder safety strategies like traffic cones, signage, and blocker vehicles, a growing numbers of responders are injured or killed from passing vehicles every year.
Police vehicles begin using mountable beacon-style red lights to differentiate from civilian vehicles and signal drivers during emergencies or stops.
As public safety and transportation systems grow in sophistication, emergency departments of all kinds begin deploying updated light types including rotating lights, lightbars, and the integration of blue lighting.
The National Bureau of Standards produces the first federal standards for emergency lighting in the United States.See the Report
