Iveco headlines AFAC Conference presence with new Daily 4x4

The new 2017 Iveco Daily 4×4 will be on display at next weekend’s Australian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC) conference in Brisbane.

The conference gives suppliers to the Australian emergency services, such as fire brigades and SES units, the chance to show-off their latest equipment and Iveco say they plan to make the most of the chance.

Aside from the new Daily 4×4 (launch review here), Iveco will also display a Daily 4×2 ‘Smart Ambulance’ Van and a Eurocargo ML140 featuring an innovative Magirus body and ‘TEAM CAB’ (as shown above).

“The Smart Ambulance is a future ambulance platform that provides the next level of integration between the vehicle, home base and all the fit out components to give a greater level of control, communication and efficiency,”

“We’re very excited at displaying this technology at AFAC in partnership with the Byron Group.

“Iveco’s close association and relationship in particular with Magirus, offers customers a customised, turn-key solution to their appliance requirements.

“The brand is bringing its latest European firefighting expertise and innovation to the Australian and New Zealand markets, feedback from the early adopters has been extremely positive.”

The AFAC Conference is being held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from the 30th of August until the 1st of September.
