Safety is EVERYTHING to Emergency Medical Services

Saving lives is their business.

Dozens of North Carolina EMS and Law Enforcement Organizations are Implementing BlueArrow Telematics Accident Avoidance Technologies.

EMS and Law Enforcement officers are used to working long hours in a stressful work environment. Couple that with driving a vehicle, with all its distractions, and it's no wonder these services are looking for safety solutions.

In December, a North Carolina EMS driver fell asleep and crashed into a concrete retaining wall after falling asleep at the wheel, sending an injured employee to the hospital.

“These accidents don't have to happen," says Stuart Lamm, BlueArrow Telematics founder and CEO. "Thankfully, many of these organizations are looking to us to help identify which telematic solutions will work best for them."

BlueArrow already counts dozens of North Carolina counties, cities, and hospital systems as clients. "We help them select and implement technologies to detect unsafe driving behaviors and avoid accidents."

Lamm's goal is to put systems in place in every EMS and Law Enforcement Agency in N.C. BEFORE it's too late.

“Many are outstanding agencies that simply aren't aware of the accident avoidance technologies available today. We've proven over and over again that the return on investment is not only measured in dollars; it's measured in LIVES."

One popular solution offered by BlueArrow Telematics is called Mobileye, an accident avoidance system powered by an artificial vision sensor that monitors the road, providing drivers critical time to take corrective action and possibly avoid or mitigate a collision.

Utilizing Geotab’s Fleet Management solution, BlueArrow is able to create a custom system using a host of technologies that work as one. Drivers and fleet managers have access to real time information and support, detailing unsafe driver behaviors such as tailgating, changing lanes without a blinker, and other harsh driving behaviors.

"Once these organizations understand the benefits, most are more than eager to implement these strategies and make the road a safer place for their drivers, passengers, and the public," concluded Lamm.
