Industry Leading Features

The ZeroRPM Idle Mitigation System

Your EMTs are never off-duty and neither is their ambulance. Always on call, your fleet is often idling all day and all night to keep vital equipment protected: HVAC, interior/exterior lighting, communications equipment, electrical systems; including batteries, chargers, narcotics, temperature-controlled compartments, life-support systems, and more. That’s why departments choose ZeroRPM, because when every second counts, an ambulance crew must always be ready to go.

With ZeroRPM, ambulance owners will see a decrease in fuel consumption, a reduction in CO2 emissions, and a decline in their vehicle operating costs. Designed to alleviate the expenses and complications that come from constantly running an ambulance’s engine, use of the ZeroRPM Idle Mitigation System (IMS) results in less risk to the environment and personal health. You’ll also see an extension of the ambulance’s chassis life, which means ZeroRPM is a win-win for patients, crews, and your entire ambulance fleet.
