TETRA stands for Terrestrial Trunked Radio, a digital standard for radio communication drafted by the ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute). TETRA technology is used by emergency services in almost all European countries. Besides that, TETRA is also being used for civil purposes (i.e. transport). However, the frequencies for civil use differ from the frequencies used for emergency services. Therefore Target Blu-Eye does not recognize TETRA signals from civil use.
TETRA IN EUROPE
The TETRA network for emergency services is used in almost all European countries, i.e. The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Great Britain, Germany (completely rolled out mid 2014), Austria, Scandinavia, Portugal, Hungary, Italy and parts of the Czech Rebublic. All European TETRA networks for emergency services operate on the same frequencies and thus will be detected by Target Blu Eye in most cases.
MANY ACCIDENTS BY EMERGENCY SERVICES
All over Europe, accidents with emergency vehicles happen on a daily basis. On estimate on a yearly basis hundreds of thousands of accidents occur between emergency vehicles and other road users in Europe. These accidents lead to thousands of casualties, tens of fatal accidents and hundreds of millions of Euros of material damage and personal injuries.
European statistics with regard to the number of accidents with emergency vehicles are not available. But in The Netherlands, for example, police vehicles were involved in almost 20,000 accidents in the period 2008-2009. The estimated material damage and personal injuries was over 50 millionEuros. Dutch statistics about car accidents with ambulances and fire engines are unknown. However, accidents with these emergency vehicles also happen every day. (source: Algemeen Dagblad 2010).
Statistics showed that in 2012 in the UK 2,015 casualties were related to accidents where police vehicles had been involved. In the period 2007-2012, 137 fatalities were registered due to accidents with police cars. (Source: Independent Police Complaints Commission).
