Halcore Group, Inc. (Halcore) is recalling certain 2017-2018 AEV Traumahawk Type I & Type III ambulances, equipped with Whelen accessory brake lights. Depending on the specific wiring of the vehicle, these brake lights may illuminate when the brake pedal has not been pressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

  • Hazard
    If the brake lights incorrectly illuminate, it can confuse other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    Halcore will notify owners, and Whelen will replace the brake lights, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 29, 2018. Owners may contact Halcore customer service at 1-800-447-0343.
