Today, we're excited to share that the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) has ordered an additional 184 ambulances with Stealth Power idle mitigation technology, bringing the total number to 500 by the end of 2021.
FDNY responds to almost two million emergencies every year, and serves more than 8.5 million people within a 302-square-mile radius. For rapid response times, ambulances are constantly on standby. Before integrating Stealth Power's Vehicle System, ambulances could idle for up to 12 hours each day.
FDNY required a solution that would allow drivers to cut power to engines while keeping mission-critical equipment turned on, including lights, heat & air conditioning, life support devices, refrigerators & communication systems, remote engine “jump-start," and advanced vehicle & fuel diagnostics.
Since 2016, Stealth Power has helped FDNY save millions in fuel and maintenance costs while reducing CO2 emissions by over 100,000,000 lbs., meeting the state's reduced emissions mandates and improving New York City's air quality.
Installations include our system intelligence platform, powered by Microsoft Azure. Stealth Power’s solution incorporates sensors that collect data and sends it to Azure for safe and secure storage. Microsoft Power BI dashboards allow clients to easily manage the operational efficiency of individual vehicles or a whole fleet.
“We share Stealth Power’s commitment to a clean, efficient future informed by data,” said Kirk Lonbom, Director, Public Safety and Justice Strategy, US State and Local Government at Microsoft. “Stealth Power’s Fleet Intelligence platform powered by Microsoft Azure demonstrates the real-world value of their idle mitigation technology and we’re pleased to see continued adoption of their solutions.”
