HAAS Alert announced that it was awarded $1.1M by The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) to advance consumer vehicle safety solutions utilizing cellular technology that would allow approaching emergency response vehicles to warn other First Responders and civilian vehicles on the road.

HAAS Alert provides collision prevention technologies and products to First Responders and other municipal fleets. The service streams real-time safety messages to drivers and connected cars via in-vehicle systems and smartphone apps when emergency vehicles are approaching and on-scene.

The contract will allow HAAS Alert to leverage input from active and retired first responders from across the country by engaging the S&T First Responder Resource Group (FRRG).
