New Technology Allows First Responders To Influence Traffic Signals

Twenty intersections in Cleveland will receive an upgrade with a new traffic-based, pre-emption GPS system this summer. The Cleveland Utilities board voted to purchase the system and equip ten fire department vehicles with the new control units. The new GPS devices will allow first responders to control traffic lights from a distance to help disperse traffic in case of an emergency. Cleveland Fire Chief Steve Haun said that part of making sure responders arrive at accidents as quickly as possible is quick connectivity to signal controls.

In addition to the GPS purchase, the city will be adding LED-warning signs above the Norfolk Southern Railway Bridge to prevent any future collisions. According to railroad officials, there is at least one collision per  month on the bridge.

When a car accident occurs, time is of the upmost importance, especially if the victim is suffering from a traumatic brain injury or spinal injury.
