What goes 'thump thump woo thump'? A Denver ambulance5/30/2012
If you're driving and hear a set of subwoofers that are powerful enough to rattle your dental work, don't roll your eyes ... get out of the way! Denver Health EMS has outfitted a dozen of their ambulances with speakers big enough to blow up the Black Eyed Peas (and perhaps that could be a bonus application?) after realizing that drivers weren't always responding to their traditional flashing lights-and-siren combo. "They vibrate the entire ground," chief paramedic Scott Bookman said. "People can feel it throughout their car. It's pretty neat." It's also effective, allowing the bass-bumping EMS crews to respond to emergencies within nine minutes while ensuring that they grab the attention of the other drivers on the road.
What else could EMS teams do to get drivers' attention?
