REV GROUP UNVEILS E-ONE QUINT FIRE TRUCK AND NEW AMBULANCE INTERIOR AT 2017 FDIC SHOW

REV TO DISPLAY SEVEN OF 11 EMERGENCY BRANDS AT BOOTH #4600

REV Group rolls to the FDIC International 2017 with strength in numbers. With seven of 11 emergency brands on display at Booth #4600 during the April 27-29 tradeshow in Indianapolis, REV Emergency Group is primed to showcase some of its strongest brands, along with REV’s most exciting product reveals and industry innovations. 

Here’s a look at what’s in store for REV Group during FDIC …

 

E-ONE REVEALS METRO 100 QUINT FIRE TRUCK 

E-ONE is displaying the first-ever E-ONE Metro 100 singe-axle Quint fire truck. While the Metro 100 Quint offers a small footprint for narrow city streets, this aerial features E-ONE’s renowned 2.5 to 1 structural safety factor, making it a 25% stronger than the standard. (KME will also be on display with its own 2.5 to 1 structural safety factor aerials.)
 
The compact design on E-ONE’s high-strength integral torque box chassis features crisscross under-slung jacks with a spread of only 11’ and a 235” wheelbase for great maneuverability. The Metro 100 allows crews to fight fires with up to a 2000 GPM pump and 300 or 500 gallon tank capacity, with the choice of a LTH 100, HM 100 or 110’ aerial device with the Advanced Aerial Control System or direct hydraulic controls. The unit has an extruded aluminum body and offers 156’ of ground ladders, a  SideStacker hosebed and full-depth compartments.

E-ONE’s first Metro 100 Quint was built for the Sarasota County Fire Department in Florida. The department, which serves the Florida west coast with 29 stations, has purchased more than 35 fire trucks from E-ONE since 1985. 

 

REV UNVEILS THE MOST FLEXIBLE AMBULANCE INTERIOR EVER

Add a little flex to the mission. REV Group will display the industry’s most flexible ambulance model — the REV FLEX. Available on AEV, McCoy Miller and Wheeled Coach, this all-new model delivers the Ferno iNTRAXX system in REV’s most popular ambulance brands to deliver one of the most crew-centric ambulance designs in history.

The REV FLEX model utilizes a series of wall-mounted tracks, quick-release mounts and plug-and-play storage solutions. Not only does REV FLEX offer an infinite number of mix-and-match configurations for added flexibility, but this innovative design improves passenger safety and creates operational efficiencies that make the REV FLEX model a game-changing design.

Watch for our introductory landing page that showcases the REV FLEX advantage as well as a sampling of the many plug-and-play REV FLEX components. 

HORTON AMBULANCE ROLLS TO FDIC SHOW WITH NEW INNOVATIONS

The first manufacturer to ever build an ambulance on an Ecoline chassis in 1968, Horton has long been revered as the innovator in the industry. Five decades later, Horton is carrying on that innovator tradition. The REV ambulance brand will roll to FDIC with new product enhancements certain to be the talk of the show.

Horton will debut Directional Safety Lights, a revolutionary feature that will help guide traffic around accident scenes. These lights, integrated into the top rear portion of the vehicle, flash left or right to signal the directional flow of traffic. In addition to these new directional safety lights, Horton will debut recessed underbody lights for a cleaner look and durable lighting.

And because crews are always at the forefront of Horton’s mind, the REV brand is proud to showcase its all-new Heat/Cool Seat at FDIC, as well as the revolutionary integration of the Cool-Tech II™ HVAC system into the Intelliplex i4G™ control system. Now, crews can now monitor and service the condenser and “smart fans” through the i4G system, right down to fan rotation and amp draw.

REV JOINS IN AND ADDS TO FDIC SHOW FESTIVITIES 

Proud to join in the FDIC festivities, REV Group is pleased to support its very own REV team of runners during FDIC’s 10th Annual Courage and Valor 5K Run on Thursday at Indianapolis’ White River State Park. REV runners will show their force, wearing “Stronger in Numbers” race shirts. Adding to the FDIC festivities, REV is excited to invite dealers and departments alike to meet REV special guest and Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 27.
