The EMTRAC system enables first-response vehicles to request preemption through equipped intersections. The expansive communication range also enables city agencies to customize each intersection approach so equipped vehicles can request preemption as early as necessary.
Studies on the impact of EMTRAC EVP have discovered the following benefits:
Sunnyvale, California: After installing the EMTRAC system, the average emergency vehicle travel time decreased 20 percent in one fire district and 25 percent in another.
Coquitlam, British Columbia: Average emergency-vehicle response times decreased between 20 to 25 percent.
Novato, California: After installing the EMTRAC system on all fire engines and ambulances, response times improved 45 percent.
