BRANDON, SD – (September 30, 2022) – Spartan Emergency Response, comprised of several subsidiaries of REV Group, Inc., and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, will host the 26th Annual Fire Truck Training Conference (FTTC) Oct. 2-7 at The Lansing Center in Lansing, MI.
FTTC is the largest and most in-depth combined training symposium and testing event in the nation, attracting over 300 first responder driver-operators, technicians, equipment manufacturers, dealers, service center representatives and more from across the U.S., Canada, Latin America, and Asia. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn directly from the manufacturer, to test to certify or re-certify on EVT standards, and network with fellow technicians and driver-operators.
Spartan Emergency Response’s 26-year history of hosting this event reflects the company’s commitment to provide first responders with the safest, most effective fire apparatus possible, and to empower them with the skills and knowledge to keep their fleets well maintained and in service. This year marks the return of the popular event, which was cancelled the last two years due to COVID.
FTTC provides multiple training tracks with 45 individual courses over five-days that spans repairs of brake systems, pumps, valves, roll-up doors, and more. Attendees of the training seminars can meet with component suppliers one-on-one to address specific troubleshooting issues and learn the latest maintenance techniques.
“FTTC demonstrates Spartan’s commitment to the first responder community,” said Mike Virnig, Vice President of Sales, REV Fire Group. “We’re proud to build the finest fire apparatus on the road, but equally gratified to know we’re doing our part to educate and share best practices that enhance the safety and wellbeing of the individuals we ask to protect our communities.”
