Braun to Display Three Emergency Vehicles at FDIC 2015

The Braun Industries booth at FDIC 2014.

VAN WERT, OH—Braun Industries, Inc. is revving up to participate in FDIC International 2015, the world’s largest fire and emergency services training-based conference and exhibition. Attending the show will be representatives from Braun and its dealerships from around the country. Braun’s main booth will be located in the Indiana Convention Center in booth 3057. However, the custom ambulance manufacturer will also have a model on display in the GM booth (3920).

The Braun booth will display two emergency vehicles. The first is a 2014 Super Chief Type I ambulance, a customer unit from Miami, Florida. Built on the 2015 Freightliner M2, the Super Chief Type I features a door-forward design, a large pass-through opening, and dual attendant seats. For added convenience, the ambulances offers multiple storage options including pull-out compartments above the rear wheels on each side, as well as a custom recessed area at the foot of the squad bench. Also included are two six-point harness seated positions, a custom-designed ALS stack with roll-up door, flip down electrical compartment, angled heating and air conditioning system, and warning lighting in C-channel rub rails.

Also on display in Braun’s booth will be a 2015 Chief XL Type I ambulance from Blair Township, Grawn, Michigan. Mounted on the 2015 Ford F-450 4×4 chassis, the 2015 Chief XL Type I ambulance is completely customizable to meet the unique needs of fire and EMS crews and patients. For safer and more comfortable patient loading and unloading, the Blair Township model features a Stryker Power-LOAD™ and Power cot. During transport, swivel based five-point-harness chairs enable emergency crews to face and attend to patients. The unit also features Braun’s unique SolidBody™ construction, EZ Glide door, EZ 02 lift and a front bumper with customizable sounds. Integrated Whelen M-9 lighting scene/emergency lights provide high visibility on the exterior of the unit, while the Vital Max lighting system creates a suitable work environment on the interior.

In GM’s booth, Braun will showcase a 2014 Chief XL Type III ambulance from Steuben County, Indiana. It’s built on a 2015 Chevy G-4500 with an innovative EZ-02 lift, dual vista displays, and center ducted heating and air conditioning system. A lockable drug drawer ensures security for medicines and medical supplies, and an OTE temperature controlled cabinet in the upper front wall keeps narcotics at proper temperature. In addition, warning lights in the C-channel rub rails and angled cabinets along each side of the CPR seat offer increased safety and storage where it’s critical. The unit also includes a recessed D bottle storage in the squad bench and a Franklin digital clock.
