Chad Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for Braun, says, “We’re proud to be displaying four of our amazing ambulance units at FRI! We’re especially proud to be able to showcase Rogers Fire Department’s unit, since their Chief Tom Jenkins is currently President of the IAFC. It’s an honor to display his, and our other units, here this year. We’re looking forward to seeing our new partner, Demers Ambulances at FRI, as well as seeing our existing customers and dealers, and taking the opportunity to meet with new potential customers, too. We’re honored to be able to display a number of our new features, including MasterTech FleetConnect.” Chad, as well as his team of regional sales managers and some of their dealer partners, will be available to answer questions and give attendees a tour of their vehicles in their booth, #4134, throughout the course of the event.
