REV Recreation Group recently completed a custom-built RV for the Milwaukee Fire Department to serve as their Mobile Survive Alive House. The RV is a first of its kind mobile fire education unit that will be used to engage children in the greater Milwaukee area.
Currently, the Milwaukee Fire Department offers an educational program that teaches the dangers of fire and fire safety for kids, and the new Mobile Survive Alive House will be an integral part of this program. “The job of firefighting has evolved over the years, educating children on fire safety has become an important part of our community efforts,” stated Lieutenant Michael Ball, Community Relations Director for the Milwaukee Fire Department. “The Survive Alive House is a key component of how we demonstrate fire safety to children.”
The Mobile Survive Alive House will be taken to schools and appear at various events throughout the Milwaukee area. “This mobile unit allows us to go to our citizens anywhere in the city to educate them about fire safety,” said John Litchford, Milwaukee Deputy Fire Chief. “This will help us achieve our yearly goal of zero fire deaths in Milwaukee.”
“REV Group is committed to the education and safety of the young people throughout the Milwaukee area,” stated Tim Sullivan, CEO of REV Group. “We are also committed to our first responders and we’re pleased to support their goal of zero fire deaths. The Mobile Survive Alive Unit is an extension of that commitment.”
The engineering team at REV Group’s Class A RV division worked directly with the Milwaukee Fire Department to build the custom RV.
