Ambulance company monitoring drivers
Tri-med Ambulance Service, which provides basic life-support transportation in King County, announced it has made ambulance trips safer.
The Kent-based company said it has installed a state-of-the-art road safety system and startied new safety training.
The road safety system monitors the speed and other data of all ambulances, giving drivers real-time information on how safely they are driving. For example, the system gives audible warnings when drivers approach company-set limits, officials said.
In addition, Tri-Med has created a safety training position.
We want to do everything within our power to ensure our drivers arrive both safely and expediently, in both emergency and non-emergency situations, said Jay Davidson, principal of Tri-Med.
Tri-Med also operates in Pierce County.
