Horton leads the industry in safety innovations, most notably providing the first and only standard occupant rollover protection system, HOPS
. The Horton Occupant Protection System is a fully-tested system that combines advanced restraints, multi-density head protection, tubular airbags and head curtain airbags to protect attendants in a side impact rollover collision.
Perhaps one of the most avoidable ambulance accidents involves backing the vehicle into an unseen object. It's especially easy to achieve when technicians are responding to a unique and unknown location. To improve maneuverability, and ultimately safety, Horton offers reverse proximity sensors on all ambulance models. Located in the rear bumper, Horton's reverse proximity sensors monitor your ambulance's distance from surrounding objects. If your rig gets too close, the sensors will activate an audible alarm to warn the driver.
