The 2014 Firefighter Turnout: An Event You Don’t Want to Miss!

fdicrecap-300x224Every year, I always look forward to attending FDIC in Indianapolis, IN. I actually have only attended the event twice, and I couldn’t believe what I had been missing out on! It is a great place to meet brothers and sisters from all across the world, and there are lots of great training classes that are offered BY THE BEST Instructors out there! This year will be no different. Actually, every year seems to just get bigger and better!

Last year, I assisted with the Fire Critic/ Iron Firemen Meet-up at the Hard Rock Café! We had acquired a side room that we packed from wall to wall. Drinks, food, and fireman fellowship always makes for a great time.

This year, as we started planning the event, it was obvious that we had quickly surpassed the capacity that the Hard Rock Café was able to host. Our network, First Arriving Network, stepped up to the plate to be sure that there would be an event on Friday, April 11th, 2014, for ALL firefighters and attendees to have a great time.
