    Question FDIC Convention - Comments?

    Greetings all!!

    We're thinking of sending a group down to FDIC in April. I would like to hear from anyone who has attended in previous years, comments about the experience, good or bad. Any comments on the H.O.T. Evo's?

    Any comments appreciated.

    Be safe!!

    You won't find a better, more informative TRAINING conference anywhere. There may be "shows" that have more glitter or more social activities, but FDIC is where firefighters come to LEARN! (Not that the glitter and social activities are too shabby, either! Make SURE that you get to the Indy FOOLS event, Thursday night).

    I would strongly urge anyone that has an opportunity to attend to do so.

    You will be glad you did.

    Very much worth the trip. Great training and networking, with both the H.O.T. classes and classroom sessions. Also don't miss the ceremonies. I can't say enough good things about it.

    You will not find a better place to spend your money for training. And not only the training, but the networking and knowledge you can gain just from the exhibits is amazing. I've been to both FH expo and FDIC and Indy just blows FH Expo out of the water.

    Absolutely awesome training and a good way to get to meet guys from all over the country. I just received an email though saying that 3 of the 8-hour HOT classes have been canceled all together and 2 others are full, so picking is kinda slim on 8-hour classes this year.
    Canceled: Truck Co - Rope Rescue, Handling Elevator Emergencies, Fire Investigation.
    Full: Truck Co - Essentials, First Due Engine and Truck Tactics
