Emergency Vehicle Warning System

Emergency crews deserve safe, ready access to streets adjacent to their fire house or emergency vehicle location. The egress onto the street or highway may pose visibility challenges (such as curves and obstructions), or the posted speeds may warrant an added warning. Speeders and distracted drivers only compound the problem.

Emergency Vehicle Flashing BlinkerSign® and BlinkerBeacon™ provide a high-visibility advance warning to drivers approaching the emergency vehicle station egress or ingress. The BlinkerSign® can be wirelessly activated from multiple methods, including a push-button in the vehicle station or remote activation key fobs in emergency vehicles.
