Which Smart Chargers Should Be Used For Emergency Vehicles?
Essential Vehicles Need Smart Chargers
With COVID cases increasing this November, and with the tumultuous nature of the times we live in, emergency vehicles and emergency responders are more important now than ever.
Let us start with a few facts. According to The Department of Transportation, the most recent research indicates that there are more than 21,000 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies in the United States. Moreover, the EMS system is very complex and includes both private and public organizations. In fact, "EMS is much more than a ride to the hospital. It is a system of coordinated response and emergency medical care, involving multiple people and agencies. A comprehensive EMS system is ready every day for every kind of emergency." In addition to EMS, there are over 12,000 local police departments. (Bureau of Justice Statistics) In other words, emergency vehicles are in high demand to say the least. Whether a person is seriously injured, or in need of urgent medical care, an ambulance and squad car will inevitably be dispatched. Think about it. This is a lot of vehicles. Out there-every day- every hour-helping others.
So what are we doing to ensure that these emergency vehicles are running smoothly? How are we taking care of these vital machines as they sit and wait for their next adventure? Or, better yet, are we even thinking about this? No matter where your answer lies, the time is now to begin taking care of these instrumental vehicles. Both squad cards and ambulances, alike, need to be treated effectively for the quality vehicles they are. And what better time to do this before seasons change for most of Americans.
