Columbus is proud to be on the cutting edge of “greening” our fleets for our first responders, whom have embraced the technology in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint on the environment. Columbus Police became recognized as a “1-Star” Clean Cities Fleet for the state of Ohio in 2018, because of our results related to the implementation of GRIP’s anti idle technology.

Control front and rear climates

In EMS industries, it’s critical to monitor and manage front and rear climates to maintain adequate temperatures for paramedics, patients, equipment, and medicine. GRIP automatically monitors front and rear climate to ensure adequate temperature is maintained.

  • Manage front cab climate
  • Manage rear climate
  • Manage humidity levels

Engine off. Components on.

Training operators to shut off the vehicle is one approach to reducing idling; however, when the vehicle’s ignition is turned off by an operator, the airbags, windshield wipers, lighting, and other equipment are also powered off. With the GRIP System, all auxiliary functions, lighting, and communications devices are fully functional while the vehicle’s engine is powered off.
