REV Fire Group, comprised of REV Group, Inc. manufacturers of fire apparatus E-ONE®, KME®, Ferrara, Spartan Fire Chassis, Spartan Emergency Response®, Smeal, and Ladder Tower, has announced it will host the 27th Annual Fire Truck Training Conference (FTTC) October 1-6, 2023 at The Lansing Center in Lansing, Michigan.

As the largest and most in-depth combined training symposium and testing event in the nation, FTTC has expanded this year and will incorporate all of The Lansing Center event space. With registration nearly full, approximately 400 first responder driver-operators, technicians, equipment manufacturers, dealers, service center representatives and more from across the U.S., Canada, and Latin America are expected to attend.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn directly from manufacturers, complete certification tests and/or re-certify on EVT standards, as well as network with fellow technicians and driver-operators.

FTTC provides three training tracks with more than 50 individual courses over four days that span repairs of brake systems, roll-up doors, electrical systems, pressure governors, pumps, and more. Attendees of the training seminars can meet with suppliers one-on-one to address specific troubleshooting issues and learn the latest maintenance tips and techniques.

Spartan Emergency Response’s 27-year history with this event reflects REV Fire Group’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 in service and well maintained.

“Events like FTTC exemplify REV Fire Group’s commitment to the first responder community,” said Mike Virnig, president of REV Fire Group. “We’re proud to build the finest fire apparatus on the road, but it’s equally gratifying 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.”
