Representatives from Braun Industries and their dealer network will be in attendance for the exhibition April 11-13, 2019. They will be bringing four custom ambulances to display in Booth #4639, along with another completed ambulance for the GM booth.
“FDIC is the largest show we attend annually, and one of the most important for us,” says Chad Brown, Braun Industries’ VP of Sales and Marketing. “The size of the exhibition, quality of courses offered, and centralized geographic location make it the chief event for Fire & Rescue professionals to attend. We get a lot of booth visitors, helping us connect with customers old and new, as well as prospective customers. We make it a point to bring unique layouts with innovative features to display the full range of Braun’s capabilities as the premier ambulance manufacturer. This year, we have an incredible lineup of ambulances and dealer representatives attending. We are also very excited to be located directly next to our partner, Demers Ambulances.”

The interior cabinet lighting is ridgeback blue LED, and ceiling strip lights change from red to amber on braking and turning. Truck #7986 is a Liberty; this is the first unit being produced on the brand-new Chevy Silverado extended cab chassis. The demo features a LiquidSpring suspension, EZ 02 lift, Pro Air AC with rear headpad air curtain, and more. Inside, attendees will see custom contoured EVS seat backs with the Braun logo, blue/white dome lights, rear door glove holders, and other Braun innovations. Both demo ambulances are available for purchase, along with other in-stock units from the manufacturer.
