This year’s Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) is expected to be not only the largest but the most comprehensive and beneficial training opportunity both nationally and internationally for all levels of fire service professionals.
Hosting more than 24 hands-on training evolutions, 34 preconference workshops, more than 160 classroom presentations, and an out of this world exhibit area it’s easy to see why this is such a rewarding conference.
“We like to say that we are training the trainers. Obviously a whole fire department can’t come out to the event because it would cost taxpayers a lot of money. So the trainers go back to their department and take the education the received here and train the hundreds of firefighters that are in their department, therefore saving taxpayers a lot of money and bringing firefighters home to their families at the end of the day,” Eric Schlett, Vice President of the FDIC, said.
This is the 13th year FDIC has been held in Indianapolis and the third largest 2009 convention the city is hosting.
