We attended the largest fire and emergency trade show in Canada a couple of weeks ago, and it was a pleasure to see innovation at work in the ever-evolving emergency vehicle landscape. While the types of vehicles and equipment on display varied, there was one concept in particular that caught our eye: the Halrai vehicle. Developed in partnership with the MTC and Halrai, this innovative and cost-effective concept is designed as a flexible platform that can be adapted for multiple transportation uses. In this case, it's a carrier for all of the equipment and tools required for a fire and rescue mission, organized in neat, compartmentalized drawers. It also happens to be completely fitted with our LED lighting solution, the Luma Bar.
