Being prepared for any emergency, any time, is a cardinal rule in the fire service. Moments wasted can compound tragedy for both people and property.

Something as routine as checking tire pressure is an important part of that preparation. Driving on an under-inflated tire, especially at higher speeds on the way to a call, causes a tire to flatten out and overheat, which in turn can cause rapid tire wear, tire blowout and loss of vehicle control, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This is why having a tire pressure monitoring system is so crucial for the fire service. However, there are substantial differences among TPMS solutions that can have a significant impact on emergency preparedness.
