When every second counts: the rescue sticker.
Get the right Rescue Card quicker by using the QR code sticker.
Every second counts when it comes to occupant rescue after an accident. Mercedes-Benz Group is the first vehicle manufacturer to introduce a small but effective innovation that gives emergency services immediate access to safety-relevant information: the Rescue Sticker.
The QR code on the sticker is simply scanned using a smartphone or tablet to display the vehicle's current rescue card1. Rescue services can then view information on the location of airbags, battery, tanks, power lines, pressure cylinders and other rescue-critical components. Thanks to this simple but significant solution, services at the scene have a key advantage in the fight against time. Using the QR code, they can respond more quickly. In an emergency, these stickers can help to save lives.
The QR code stickers are easy to apply and are available from your Mercedes-Benz dealership for all Mercedes-Benz vans manufactured from 1996 onwards.
Requirement: an active Internet connection.
"There are certain areas on every vehicle where we cannot cut without exposing vehicle occupants or ourselves to unnecessary risk. That's why it's important for us to be able to access potentially life-saving information from outside the vehicle. … This saves precious time at the scene of an accident. Every second counts and any support can be crucial."
