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.
Brilliant, real-time alerting of departing and returning emergency vehicles
Activate a wall-mounted control box when vehicle(s) depart station or allow the emergency vehicle driver to activate system via key fob when returning to station.

Emergency Vehicles departing Fire Houses, Hospitals, Medical Clinics and other locations inevitably experience conflicts with other vehicles approaching the facility. Traffic & Parking Control Company's Emergency Vehicle Egress Warning Systems are designed to enhance traffic safety by reducing vehicle conflicts.

The IR emitter sends a secure, encoded
priority request to the intersection.
GPS vehicle equipment transmits vehicle speed, direction
and turn signal statsus to GPS intersection equipment.
Opticom™ detector recieves IR signal and relays
the request to Opticom™ phase selector.
As vehicle enters radio range, Opticom™ GPS intersection
equipment relays the request to Opticom™ phase selector.
Opticom™ Multimode phase selector validates request form IR detector or GPS receiver, and alerts
the traffic control system which changes the traffic signal and activates signs and or beacons.
Systems can be activated and controlled with BlinkerBeam® self-powered wireless transmitters and receivers. These compact controllers activate systems wirelessly within a 1000 ft. range line of site (longer distances available with external antennas). BlinkerBeam® can be activated and controlled from a remote location, allowing for immediate implementation of warning, emergency and evacuation systems. Electric grid independence provides activation during power outages and remote locations.
