Every second counts when it comes to occupant rescue after an accident. Daimler is the first vehicle manufacturer to introduce the rescue sticker, a small but effective innovation that gives emergency services immediate access to safety-relevant information at the scene of an accident. The QR code on the sticker is simply scanned using a smartphone or tablet to display the vehicle's current rescue card.* 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 passenger cars manufactured from 1990. They are affixed to the vehicle's fuel tank cap and the B-pillar on the opposite side. Beginning with the new S-Class, all new passenger cars are now equipped as standard with the rescue sticker.
