Milwaukee Fire Department has an education program to teach young people
about the dangers of fire and fire safety. The Mobile Survive Alive
House is 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. This will help us achieve our yearly goal of zero fire deaths in
Milwaukee," said Milwaukee Deputy Fire Chief, John Litchford.

The custom unit includes a variety of fire training devices, including a
Lion® Training Stove that works in tandem with a custom fire
extinguisher to demonstrate the proper technique to extinguish a stove
fire. The unit has two bedroom-style classrooms with smoke generators
and doors with integrated heatmats to simulate a fire. Each bedroom
style classroom has a residential window with steps for evacuation
training. In the center of the vehicle is a kitchen style classroom with
bench seating and two large TVs that have camera feeds from the
bedrooms. There is also an exterior TV under a power awning that can be
used for training videos. The Mobile Survive Alive Unit features an LED
light bar above the cockpit with a PA system and siren. The light bar
and PA system were donated by Whelen Engineering, a global leader in the
emergency warning industry.

"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.
