Tremcar—www.tremcar.com VA AMPLIFIER VA Amplifier in College Point, N.Y., has a solution for residential heating oil delivery drivers that want to enhance their oil spill pre- vention efforts through a transmitter that works with a Bluetooth headset. This sensor transmits a signal that allows drivers to listen to the whistle on inconveniently located vent pipes. The product is a commodity that is needed to avoid oil spills and was invented to keep from putting oil truck delivery drivers in uncomfortable crouching or stretch- ing positions. Drivers now have to crouch or stretch to listen to inconveniently located vent pipes to hear when the oil tank is full. Some stops also require running from the vent alarm to the fill nozzle, and this tool allows them to stand or sit comfortably while listening to the whistle in their headset.
