Apparatus Design Impacting Firefighter Safety
Date & Time
Saturday, October 12, 2019, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
The Apparatus Architects will discuss the results of injecting firefighter safety into a positive apparatus design. As designers continue to ask for units that are be longer, higher, heavier, faster and more expensive, the fire apparatus industry is quickly out pacing the fire services ability to attract and train firefighters who are willing to drive and operate present-day fire apparatus. The Apparatus Architects will introduce apparatus design changes that will reduce the size of the apparatus yet increase capabilities. Cutting-edge safety components will be introduced in this presentation, including clean cabs. If your department is buying or rehabbing apparatus this program is a must for you.
