Isuzu’s National Sales Manager, Les Spaltman, said he was excited at Isuzu’s continued involvement with Australian fire services, and that AFAC was a very important event for Isuzu.

“Isuzu supplies trucks and also our diesel power solutions to every state and territory’s fire services and that’s something we’re extremely proud of.” Mr Spaltman said.

“AFAC returns to Perth this year, and as always, we’re looking forward to connecting with our friends in the emergency services sector again in 2018.”
