Emergency Vehicle Innovation at the 2018 OAFC
We attended the largest fire and emergency trade show in Canada a couple of weeks ago, and it was a pleasure to see innovation at work in the ever-evolving emergency vehicle landscape. While the types of vehicles and equipment on display varied, there was one concept in particular that caught our eye: the Halrai vehicle.
Developed in partnership with the MTC and Halrai, this innovative and cost-effective concept is designed as a flexible platform that can be adapted for multiple transportation uses. In this case, it's a carrier for all of the equipment and tools required for a fire and rescue mission, organized in neat, compartmentalized drawers. It also happens to be completely fitted with our LED lighting solution, the Luma Bar.
We captured some of the best conference highlights in our image gallery below. However, nothing could have prepared us for the untimely passing of Ontario Fire Chief, Pat Bourguignon who’s life was tragically ended in a road traffic incident after the convention.
We’d like to use this opportunity to express our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and the fire and rescue community at large who put their lives on the line every day by providing emergency response.
