Since FDIC International 2018, the REV Group’s Fire Division has made several announcements regarding not only new products for its fire apparatus lines (AXIS and ZeroRPM) and decontamination and biohazard mitigation options for fire trucks, but this division has also been busy enhancing its aerial product lines.

Shortly after FDIC International 2018, Ferrara Fire Apparatus introduced a new line of aerial ladders and platforms. The new aerials are built with 100,000-psi steel and have a 2.5:1 structural safety factor. The new Ferrara aerials include:
- Two feet more vertical reach on three models.

- 500-pound tip loads while flowing 2,000 gpm on rear-mount platforms.
- A narrower jack stance for easier aerial set up on congested streets.
- Higher handrails providing firefighters an extra measure of safety when climbing the ladder.
- Wider ladder sections that accommodate stokes baskets for rescue operations.
- Routing of cables and electric between sections to reduce obstacles during ladder operation.
- 165-degree store front blitz monitor on all aerial ladders
The new aerials are available on selected existing Ferrara models such as the MVP Rescue Ladder, HD-77 Ladder, HD-107 Ladder, LP-102 Ladder and HD-100 Rear Mount Platform. New models are also available, including the TD-100 and TD-101 tractor drawn aerials, an HD-123 rear mount ladder, and two articulating/telescopic booms.
