What are Fast Response Vehicles (FRV)?

Everybody knows the importance of fire services and emergency services for avoiding, detecting, and effectively assisting during emergencies, thus ensuring public safety and health. What we often don’t think about is how fundamental some tools that support them in these essential enterprises are. One of the most important equipment an Emergency Service relies on, no matter if we’re talking about the police, fire departments, or emergency medical services, is a Fast Response Vehicle (FRV). The big question is: what does that stand for?

Before we get to the answer of that question, let’s briefly talk about Emergency Services vehicles. It is not difficult to assume that vehicles intended to be used by fire departments and emergency services are not the same as the ones that the civilian population drives. In order to be able to attend to the community, these vehicles are usually larger and adapted to keep different kinds of equipment, fit people in a different disposition, and so on. However, there are situations in which promptly attending a call for service assignment to assist a particular situation is crucial, and that’s where the Fast Response Vehicle can be of better help.

An FRV is nothing more than a Fast Response Vehicle, meant to provide first responders with a smaller vehicle that has a faster initial response to calls for service and a lower operating cost. At 10-75 Emergency Vehicles, FRVs can be fully customized to the customer’s needs, from incorporating lights and sirens to adding high-quality lockers for fire gear and equipment.

At this point you may be asking yourself what would be the difference between a regular fire command vehicle, like an SUV or a pickup truck, and an FRV. On one hand, a fire command vehicle is operated by the incident commander and possibly an aid that has all the equipment that is needed to run an organized safe scene, such as radios, maps, computer systems, etc. An FRV, on the other hand, is designed to be operated by personnel such as firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and emergency service unit officers that are the first to respond to a scene with medical equipment, initial fire attack operations, crowd control, drone, etc.
