Renault and firefighters, a unique partnership

Within the framework of the Human First Program, Renault has joined forces with the Naudet brothers, producers of award-winning documentaries about 9/11 and the Notre Dame fire, to highlight and visually express the extremely close collaboration between the Group and the road safety teams. This alliance between engineering and R&D constitutes an amazing adventure dedicated to “the golden hour”, the precious minutes when rescue workers have a greater chance of saving lives.     
firefighter training
The only manufacturer in the world to have appointed a full-time Lieutenant-Colonel firefighter in engineering and the only one to collaborate regularly with road safety teams, Renault has trained 5,000 firefighters from 19 countries worldwide in just a few years! From 2023, new courses are already planned in Europe and Latin America.
Renault QRescue: saving time for the emergency services
With a QR code on the windscreen and rear window, Renault QRescue gives firefighters immediate access to the vehicle’s ‘rescue sheet’. 

 It provides firefighters with all the information they need to allow them to work efficiently and safely. This can save almost 15 precious minutes when it comes to taking care of victims within the golden hour(6).

Fireman Access
Even though our high-voltage batteries are designed to ensure that they are not deteriorated by any intrinsic cause, a fire caused by external reasons is always possible. If a fire spreads to the battery, the Fireman Access - a Renault innovation - points to the heart of the battery where firefighters can direct the fire hoses. Response times are therefore reduced from several hours to five minutes!
SD Switch
The “SD Switch” immediately disconnects the battery from the high-voltage network.

in safety, cutting-edge vehicles

In 50 years, Renault has helped divide by 5 the number of victims on the roads. To continuously improve everybody’s safety, the experts from the LAB (Accidents and Biomechanics Laboratory) and the 600 engineers and technicians innovate relentlessly. In total, over 2,000 patents have been filed and a range of cutting-edge technological solutions like Fireman Access and the SD Switch have been developed.     

future mobility and safety

Renault’s road safety policy is broken down into 5 areas: raise awareness, prevent, correct, protect and rescue. Innovations are constantly emerging, for instance the Safety Score, the Safety Coach and the Safety Guardian, which are set to revolutionise safety behind the wheel.
H1st vision
H1 st  vision embodies our vision for a safer future for mobility and the Research and Development of Renault’s Human First Program. 
A collaborative concept-car created by the 12 companies in the Software République ecosystem. It embodies the vision of the future of mobility with technology contributing to the safety of all road users.     
safety, ongoing innovation
To help reduce the number of accidents on the road, Renault is constantly innovating, with two very real strategies: preventing accidents and facilitating the work of first responders. New advances will revolutionise safe driving: Safety Score, Safety Coach, Safe Guardian.     
ROADS driving simulator
A revolutionary tool to test the dynamic behaviour of a vehicle, driver-assistance systems and all the driver information systems, the ROADS
immersive simulator represents a great leap in safety research.
