It’s that time of year! The Fire Department Instructors’ Conference is sneaking up on us, with an earlier than usual start date of April 7, 2014. Representatives from Braun Industries and our dealerships are gearing up to attend April 10th through the 12th. Show attendees will find Braun ambulances on display in the Indiana Convention Center; we will be located in Booth # 3357.
A detailed list of exhibitor hours are as follows:
Braun booth visitors will have the opportunity to tour two of our emergency vehicles. First, is a customer unit on loan from Frisco Fire Department. The Type I Super Chief ambulance is a 170” module mounted on an International 4300LP chassis. Interior features include a custom curbside bench with storage for a LUCAS Chest Compression System, forward-facing EVS seating, a Mermaid Medi-Kool saline cooler and drug cooler, and a Knox MedVault narcotics locker. The exterior includes M Series directional lightheads from Whelen. The ambulance is part of an extensive fleet for Frisco Fire Department in Frisco, Texas, and one of 2 Super Chief ambulances recently delivered to the department.
Also on display will be a Chief XL demo ambulance. The 169” module includes custom storage locations for a stair chair and backboard, aluminum cabinetry, and a Whelen lighting package. The box is kept comfortable for patients, and at an optimal temperature for drugs and supplies, with a Hoseline FT 454 Heat/AC System. More importantly, the unit includes the new EZ 02 Lift oxygen tank storage compartment and lift system. This is a new safety innovation that Braun will debut at the show; it is being introduced to the Fire & EMS industry in advance of the forthcoming NFPA 1917 standards. Stay tuned to our blog for more details.
In addition to our two vehicles on display, show attendees are encouraged to stop by Booth # 3357 to network with representatives from Braun Industries direct, as well as sales associates from our local ambulance dealerships across the country. We can answer any questions you may have about our ambulance models or upcoming changes in the industry. We will also be handing out free kids’ coloring packs that include a Braun water bottle, crayon set, and coloring page. The coloring page also serves as an entry into the 2014 Braun Family Coloring Contest. Three lucky kids will win a $50 Toys ‘R Us gift card for their artwork; visit the Braun website after April 1st for official rules and details.
We hope to see you in Booth #3357!
