HAAS Alert Integrates With Waze To Provide Real-Time Emergency Service Road Alerts
CHICAGO: HAAS Alert announced that it has partnered with Waze; the free, real-time crowdsourced traffic and navigation app powered by the world's largest community of drivers; to provide incident and emergency response data.Waze users will now automatically receive incident locations and warnings when emergency services (Firefighters, Police, EMS) are on the scene to warn and/or re-route drivers to avoid delays. Waze is the first navigation app offering the HAAS Alert service, enabling the Waze community to help increase safety for first responders.
"Keeping drivers and emergency personnel safe on the roadways is central to our mission," said HAAS Alert CEO and co-founder, Cory Hohs. "We're delighted to be able to provide real-time alerts to Waze's large community through this new data-sharing partnership because so many drivers will now have the information they need to avoid collisions and improve safety on the roads."
HAAS Alert joins Waze through its Connected Citizens Program which gives municipal leaders an unprecedented look at real-time road activity, empowering partners to harness real-time driver insights to improve congestion and make better informed planning decisions. HAAS Alert is adding real-time incident information derived directly from the source, as well as R2V (Responder-to-Vehicle) communication capabilities to improve safety, improve traffic routes and reduce response times by emergency personnel.
