The first vehicle equipped with the new safety component is now in use by a fire department in Pennsylvania.

“Every fire truck should have an OnGuard collision mitigation system because it helps protect vehicle occupants in potential collision situations,” said Carsten Duevell, senior director, Vehicle Control Systems for Meritor Wabco. “E-One is the first to release OnGuard on emergency vehicles, demonstrating a commitment to improving firefighters' safety when driving to and from emergency situations.”

OnGuard is a radar-based active safety system that warns drivers of potential rear-end collisions and, when appropriate, reacts faster than the driver by applying the brakes automatically. OnGuard can be combined with Meritor Wabco’s SmartTrac stability control system, which is also on E-ONE vehicles, for improved stability, Duevell said.

E-One designs and manufactures fire rescue vehicles, with more than 28,000 vehicles in operation globally.
