Crestline Coach and Ferno Canada are teaming up to pilot ACETECH iN∫COMMAND with Peterborough Paramedics, the first EMS service in North America to use the system.

Peterborough Paramedics serves Peterborough, Ontario.

Crestline customized three New Era ambulances for Peterborough Paramedics to meet the specific needs of their EMS service. Through partnership with Ferno Canada, the ambulances integrate North America’s first ACETECH iN∫COMMAND solution.

The iN∫COMMAND solution is a control center designed to provide emergency service operators full control of the ambulance by managing and monitoring auxiliary controls and safety equipment from a single touchscreen device. This comprehensive and user-friendly interface optimizes performance by providing access to vital information in real-time and improved asset management. The customizable touchscreen makes operation effortless, easy to view and ultra-responsive, even while wearing medical gloves.

“My vision for these vehicles is based on my belief that technology is evolving at such speed that we need to be futuristic in our approach to vehicle design,” said Randy Mellow, Peterborough county-city paramedics chief.

“These three New Era’s are being built with/as a platform that we hope will address the evolution toward a greener (solar), smarter (iN∫COMMAND Computer) and safer (iN∫Traxx equipment mounts) environment for paramedics, patients and the public.”

The ambulances also are equipped with the Ferno iN∫Traxx Integrated Vehicle Component System and a full suite of ACETECH solutions, including ACETECH CONTROL, ECO-RUN, AVI and SOLAR.

The Ferno iN∫Traxx is a modular system featuring wall-mounted tracks that secure a series of SafeMount equipment mounts, SafeCab storage cabinets, and SafePak supply bags to prove SAE compliant safety.

The ACETECH solar panels installed on the roof of the ambulance draw solar energy to supplement battery power, reducing the need for shoreline charge while also powering the lifesaving equipment onboard.
