REV GROUP ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH FERNO ON REVOLUTIONARY NEW AMBULANCE DESIGN

IN∫TRAXX SYSTEM TO CHANGE THE LANDSCAPE OF AMBULANCE INTERIORS

REV Group is teaming up with Ferno, a global leader in emergency pre-hospital patient handling equipment, to introduce what some are labeling as “the most significant change in ambulance interiors in more than 50 years.”

This crew-centric ambulance design, which will be available on AEV, McCoy Miller and Wheeled Coach in the third quarter, features the innovative Ferno iN∫TRAXX™ system. This one-of-a-kind system, exclusive to REV, utilizes a series of wall-mounted tracks and quick-release mounts that give crews the ability to choose their own plug-and-play storage solutions to secure loose equipment. Gone are the days of traditional cabinetry.

“This is the future in ambulances, and the launch of this product only marks the first iteration of this revolutionary design,” Collins said.

Not only can iN∫TRAXX offer an infinite number of mix-and-match configurations but the design improves passenger safety and creates operational efficiencies that make this REV-exclusive offering a game-changing design. Here’s a look at how REV and Ferno  are changing the landscape of interior ambulance design …

ENHANCED AMBULANCE SAFETY

Compliant with new federal safety requirements by SAE, NFPA, CAAS and NHTSA, the iN∫TRAXX syst­em keeps equipment, like monitors, defibrillators, supply bags and oxygen cylinders secure to the ambulance walls during 26g impacts. And with vital tools within reach, medics can deliver patient care from a seated and secure position — all configured to the way each EMT personnel prefers to work (and save lives).

ADJUSTABLE AMBULANCE DESIGN

For decades, crews have relied on cabinetry to store supplies, but over time, one thing has become apparent — supplies at the back of deep-recessed cabinets never cycle to the front. With the new REV/Ferno design, the system reduces surplus inventory and improves restocking time, helping decrease operational costs. The overall weight of the vehicle is also lowered, creating even more cost savings.  

AMBULANCE STORAGE SOLUTIONS

The modular nature of the system allows EMS providers to adjust each storage solution within minutes thanks to the system’s quick-release mounts. Mount the trash receptacle, sharps container, oxygen bottles and more. Add a work tray. Choose the size, color and number of SafePak pouches to store supplies. Integrate the iN∫X patient transport and loading system. The configurations are limitless.

AMBULANCE INDUSTRY EXPERTS

This transformational new design merges REV’s expertise in manufacturing the safest, most durable ambulances on the market with Ferno’s drive in transforming emergency care. Together, both companies are focused on delivering the best medic experience and unmatched passenger safety to create long-term value for REV’s EMS providers with everything being rounded out by REV’s knowledgeable network of dealers.
