We often tout the personal health, climate protection, and sheer “fun” aspects of the Pedego and Segway models and accessories we sell and service. At Great Lakes Segway, Pedego Walled Lake, Segway of Central Florida, and Pedego of Mount Dora, we are also honored to serve in a much more important role. We vigorously support professionals involved in security, fire-fighting, and crime-stopping, too!
FIRE-FIGHTERS and EMS STAFF
The heroes who extinguish fires, rescue people from floods/tornados/hurricanes and accidents, and rush patients to medical facilities after life-threatening occurrences often use Segways and Pedegos to strengthen their efforts and conserve their important physical energy.
When speeding to an accident in rough terrain, or providing security services at crowded event venues, the Pedego Patroller, Segway PT, Trikke Defender and other public safety models are ideal! They allow firefighters and emergency medical technicians to travel more agilely through crowds and rough roads while conserving the energy needed to address emergencies. For many fire departments and EMS teams, they are a cost-effective supplement to fire trucks and ambulances.
RETAIL AND EVENT SECURITY STAFF
For incidents at event sites and retail malls, both Pedegos and Segway models prove to be much more versatile than running on foot or using cars or trucks.
They allow security patrol staff to quickly and efficiently move to a “hot spot,” communicate at eye level, and “cool down” or stop a potential confrontation while interacting with more ease. Whether it is to prevent a crime, catch a perpetrator in theft, or simply reassure event attendees and retail shoppers that they are in secure environments, these devices are important and affordable tools.
REGIONAL POLICE FORCES
We have spent over a decade understanding the needs of the modern police force.
Our Segway models have proven vital to effective policing, again and again. Why? Well, our Segway PT’s travel up to 12.5 miles per hour. Using them, an officer can cover twice as much ground as moving on foot, simultaneously having the ability to move into tight spaces where patrol cars cannot travel. Segways provide an 8-inch height difference while encouraging “eye-to-eye” communication, vital to diffuse potentially incendiary incidents. Segways also offer the unique advantages of being able to travel upward to a 26% grade, maneuver through doorways, entrances, and egresses, and handle all sorts of rough terrain. Segways can also be easily retrofitted with sirens, emergency lights, and more accessories developed specifically for police and security forces.
Our Pedego Patroller is another affordable security ebike. Its unique throttle for quick acceleration, automatic 5-level pedal assist system, 500-watt geared motor enabling speeds of up to 20 mph, and retrofittable sirens and flashing lights make it a very efficient and effective police transport alternative.
More than once, use of a Segway or a Pedego has mitigated violence and controlled potentially incendiary situations.
