Nominations Sought for Emergency Vehicle Technician of the Year Award

May 7, 2024
Nominations for this year's EVT of the Year Award are open and the recipient will be honored at the Fire Truck Training Conference in the fall.

The call for nominations for the 2024 Emergency Vehicle Technician of the Year Award (EVT) is now open and Firehouse is pleased to announce that it will be presented during the 2024 Fire Truck Training Conference (FTTC), Sept. 29 - Oct. 4, in Lansing, MI. 

“Spartan Chassis has been a proud sponsor of the EVT Award since 2017. We look forward to honoring the 2024 winner at the annual Fire Truck Training Conference in Lansing this fall”, said Chris McClung, vice president of sales, REV Fire Group. 

Since 1999, the FTTC has been a key hands-on training event for emergency vehicle technicians industry-wide.  The event, started by Spartan Motors, has continued to evolve and grow over the years and is now sponsored by REV Fire Group and REV Ambulance Group.

The EVT of the Year Award was created in 2003 to recognize the mechanics and technicians who are the unsung heroes behind operational fire, emergency apparatus and vehicles. Firehouse's Special Projects Director Janet Wilmoth created the award based on awareness of the dedication and commitment of her brother and others he worked with.

“The move to FTTC is an excellent fit for the EVT of the Year Award,” said Wilmoth. “With over 300 EVTs, FTTC is the industry’s leading EVT hands-on training and testing event. Recognizing  the annual technicians’ commitment to their job raises awareness of why firefighters, EMS and others can quickly respond to incidents.”

The call for nominations’ form and criteria can be downloaded here.

The deadline for submissions is July 22.

Previous nominees are eligible for nomination with a completed form and letter of recommendation.
