As we have stated previously, the 2015 Ford Mustang is set to debut with a rather expansive list of new safety and technological features, such as the knee airbags mentioned previously. So what is the newest reveal of the 2015 Mustang? Well this time, it’s a technological feature, but it very well could save your life in the event of an accident. An upgraded 911 Assist will be coming with the new Mustang.
So what does an upgraded 911 Assist mean? We know that the 911 Assist offered previously would make a phone call, through a Bluetooth-connected phone, should you become involved in an accident. Already sounds like a pretty good deal, so how can it get better? With the upgraded 911 Assist, first responders and emergency personnel can learn whether the crash involved a front, side, rear, or even a rollover impact. It will also inform emergency personnel on how many seat belts were in use at the time of the crash and whether the airbags deployed or not.
David Hatton, the global project leader with Ford Connected Services, said, “Sync [911 Assist] will only broadcast relevant information to save time, and it constructs a very efficient message for the operator. After the introductory message, the voice line opens automatically and occupants can speak directly with the operator via Sync’s hands-free functionality.”
At Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford, we think anything that can help emergency personnel and first responders help the victims of a crash more quickly and efficiently is a good thing. What do you think?
