Government Fleet's Thi Dao highlighted positive results from Lytx’s DriveCam safety program in a feature on Manatee County Emergency Medical Services in Florida. During a three-month trial of DriveCam, Manatee County EMS, which serves up to 550,000 Floridians, experienced a 100% reduction in near collisions and a 60% reduction in both frequency and severity of risk. On top of safety improvements, Manatee County was able to use Lytx’s safety program to help in the exoneration of EMS drivers and to uncover the cause of mystery damages.
"'Safety is in our name — the Department of Public Safety is who we work for — and it’s our job to use every tool we can to provide safety for our staff and those we serve,' said Manatee County EMS Chief Paul DiCicco. 'We want to be the safest division in Manatee County, and Lytx has helped us make remarkable steps toward achieving that goal.'"
