The Standard and the LED Univisor is a quick, simple and effective way to turn a Personal vehicle into a Easily Identifiable On-Call Firefighter vehicle, that can easily been seen to improve the response times by the Firefighter on route to the station, to ensure the Appliance leaves within a respectable time scale.
The idea for the LED Univisor all came around because M.D Simon Jeffery, saw the need to assist the fire fighters to get through traffic to get to the station safely and effectively within the respectable time to ensure the appliance leaves the station in the earliest possible time.
The Idea behind the LED Univisor is not to gain any extra road traffic regulations, but to increase the awareness to other road users to enable them to act safely and timely so that the on call fire fighter can make progress to the station easier and within the road traffic regulations. The idea is the another road user sees them in their rear view mirror and pulls to the side safely enabling the crew to make progress through traffic. This Reduces the ‘Red Mist’ that can kick in if the crew member is sat in traffic not moving because no one is aware of the urgency to get to the station, allowing the crew member to arrive at the station in a better frame of mind to prepare the appliance and the task ahead.
The use of Dash Cams to coincide with the LED Univisor could be a useful tool to replay any incident or report from the public if a crew member is seen to be driving aggressively or against the road traffic law.
The Standard Univsior is a great way to provide vehicle identification, this is great for parking at the station and awareness during the day

The Sister product; the LED Univisor also benefit from the added increase awareness to other road users and evening identification, Perfect for On-Call Firefighter roles within the service or to add extra identity to a Blue Light Unmarked Officers vehicle – Increase distance of awareness for other road users.
For the LED Univisor to really take hold and have the real true benefit, then the public need to be 1; aware of their use and 2; Why they are being used. To achieve this, we have designed Banners, Stickers and Adverts to be placed around the towns and main routes to the station to make people look in their mirrors to check for on call firefighters.
This is an example of the stickers to raise awareness
