ELKHART, IN—As many people are aware, more than 50 percent of firefighters killed in the line of duty die from health-related problems such as heart attack and stroke as die from fighting fires (from FEMA 2012 statistics: http://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/publications/ff_fat12.pdf). Elkhart Brass is dedicated to helping the fire service address this pressing issue. In the spirit of supporting firefighter health and fitness, Elkhart Brass is conducting an event to give away a Rogue Fitness gym set worth $4,000 at the Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC) on April 7-12, 2014 held at the Indianapolis Convention Center.
“Elkhart Brass has been committed for over 112 years to solving firefighting challenges by producing tough, durable products to help make firefighting easier and safer,” said Eric Combs, Elkhart Brass marketing director. “But that’s only one piece to the equation. The most valuable, the most important piece is our dedicated, compassionate firefighters. We are invested in supporting firefighting health and fitness initiatives to ensure our communities’ firefighters are the best they can be….safe, strong firefighting machines.”
All firefighters are challenged to stop by Elkhart Brass’ booth, #5838, to try a: 30 second workout to receive an Elkhart Brass gift and to be entered into a drawing to win a Rogue Fitness gym set for their firehouse. Firefighters can double their changes to win the gym by stopping by the booth within the first hour of the show.

The Sidewinder is the first water monitor to utilize the new EXM control platform from Elkhart Brass. Developed as the successor to the radio frequency (RF) control series, the EXM is a “plug and play” digital communication and control architecture that simplifies installation while greatly expanding builder and user selectable options.
In addition to the EXM functionality, the Sidewinder has been further updated to employ Elkhart’s patented elliptical waterway and axially aligned thrust bearings for a 50% increase in flow efficiency and 10 times greater durability.
