Something this simple can help save lives.
Introducing Rescue AssistSM— the first-ever use of QR codes to help passengers and first responders stay safe.
It can be a dangerous situation when, at the scene of an accident, first responders don't have a vehicle's structural information readily available. With Rescue AssistSM, that's no longer an issue. They can scan a QR code in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle to quickly see where batteries, airbags and other structural elements are located to safely perform the rescue.
Rescue Assist℠ in your Mercedes-Benz.
- As of November 1, 2013, QR codes are installed in all Mercedes-Benz vehicles during production.
- On or about April 1, 2014, Mercedes-Benz vehicles model years 1990 and newer can be retrofitted with the QR codes at any local dealership.
