Newest GJFD Engine Equipped with Safety Cloud Technology

GJFD Engine 8

Grand Junction Fire Department has received delivery of our newest fire engine manufactured by Pierce. The apparatus will go into service at Station 8 tomorrow and features exciting technology that can reduce the risk of collision by up to 90%, improving the safety of first responders traveling to emergencies and motorists sharing the same roads.  

Engine 8 comes equipped with Safety Cloud developed by HAAS Alert. The technology alerts travelers to upcoming and unexpected hazards sooner and more effectively than lights and sirens alone. The Safety Cloud technology delivers digital alerts that notify vehicles of approaching or upcoming emergency response vehicles. When emergency lights are activated by first responders, drivers receive real-time digital alerts to slow down and move over. Notifications are delivered by apps, navigation systems, and mobile devices up to 30 seconds in advance of the responding emergency vehicle. Vehicles that will receive alerts include Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, RAM, and Alfa Romeo.
