FHExpo17: Attend the Apparatus Purchasing Committee Program

June 13, 2017
The Apparatus Purchasing Committee is a free one-day event for exclusive access to the apparatus manufacturers.

Is your department in the market for an apparatus? Are you in the process of researching or speccing your next apparatus? Are you looking to learn about the latest technology in apparatus design?

If so, don’t miss Firehouse’s Apparatus Purchasing Committee Program, a free one-day event at Firehouse Expo that provides qualified apparatus committee members exclusive access to the major apparatus manufacturers. This event is a great opportunity to receive free education and consultation from subject-matter experts.

“This really is the best opportunity to learn what’s the ‘latest and greatest’ in apparatus, as well as best practices when speccing, inspecting and taking delivery of new apparatus,” says Brian Cassell, Firehouse Expo group show manager. “Whether you purchase every year or once every 5 years, apparatus components, safety and technology changes fast—and this is THE place to learn.”

Brian Newberry, EMS chief for the Wilson County, IN, Emergency Management Agency, said attending the APC session at Firehouse Expo in Nashville offered valuable information: “The information was presented by experienced professionals, and provided insight and direction for our apparatus purchases we otherwise would not have known or thought about.”

Chris Bachman, deputy chief of Support Operations for the Pike Township, IN, Fire Department, said, “This course helped out tremendously the last couple of months as we developed the spec for new apparatus.” And Lt. James Foshie of the Greeneville, TN, Fire Department commented that, “The speakers provided great knowledge and answered questions in a very detailed manner.” 

If your department has formed a committee and has your funding approved, please contact Jon Rogers to learn more about this program: (610) 656-3611 or [email protected].
