There is no doubt that LED lightheads can be an important tool for motorists and home emergency responders across the country, including well-lit urban areas. In fact, just a few of the features of LED lightheads include:
1. Flash patterns and strobe lights can attract attention and alert the public;
2. They can be effective alley lights for better visibility in poorly lit areas;
3. They can be used to assist traffic diversion and evacuation operations;
In particular, rural areas do not always benefit from public street lighting, traffic systems and occupational emergency services, which makes it even more advantageous to install LED lightheads on vehicles.
If you frequently drive through dark rural areas without public street lights, you may be concerned for your safety.
LED lightheads are a drop-in replacement for increasing the brightness of your car's headlights or taillights. Thanks to the strong light from the LED head, the entire surrounding area of the car can be illuminated. This makes light bars essential in more than one situation:
1. When looking for alleys that illuminate the dark;
2. Illuminate dark roads without street lights;
3. When looking to illuminate emergency scenes;
4. When driving along long, narrow and challenging lanes.
If the main reason for wanting to add a light bar to a vehicle is to increase the lumens or candle power of its lights, LED lightheads are an affordable and efficient option in this case.
No need to replace the car's bulbs or install new lights on the front or rear, light bars help users keep the road ahead lit with minimal expense!
In particular, the LED head is an invaluable addition when driving on off-road trails. While the original equipment manufacturer (or OEM) light portion of a car may be the benchmark, LED lights are essential for seeing obstacles ahead, driving safely on off-road trails, and reducing the risk of accidents.
Additionally, most high-quality light bars are designed to offer a variety of lighting options, including flood or spot light modes.
While LED lightheads can be important to home responders across the country, they are especially important for those responding to emergencies in rural areas.
In fact, outside of the city center, communities don't always benefit from a fully equipped occupational fire department or EMS department. Because of this, it's not surprising that the higher a state's rural population, the higher the number of volunteer responders.
However, volunteer firefighters, EMS and law enforcement officers often find themselves on the front lines of emergencies occurring in rural areas, without the training and tools reserved for career officers. As a result, more than half of firefighter deaths involved volunteers, and 13 percent were related to the use of private emergency vehicles.
Tools such as makeshift LED lightheads can protect volunteers traveling to emergency locations by:
1. Apply to other drivers for the right of way;
2. Provide visual cues to other drivers who are responding to an emergency;
3. Illuminate the way forward;
4. Ditch the traffic around the emergency scene;
5. Emergencies can better illuminate the countryside;
6. LED lightheads used to transform your home, utility or work vehicle into an emergency vehicle should comply with municipal guidelines for size, brightness, installation and color.
