True North, a leading manufacturer of firefighting gear, announced the recipient of their 2010 FDIC Training Scholarship.

True North’s CEO, Alyx Fier said “We are truly humbled by your response to our first FDIC Training Scholarship. There were over 700 people who applied, and we wish we could have sent everyone to Indy. However, we had to pick just one and this year’s recipient is Brant Kiessig from the Thunder Bay Fire & Rescue department.”

Brant Kiessig will receive the full Hands-On training package at FDIC 2010 and a 4-night hotel stay in downtown Indianapolis.

True North is also proud to announce that this will be an annual scholarship.

True North is in the process of endowing this scholarship in honor of a firefighter. If you know someone who you feel exemplifies the ideals of the fire service, please nominate them by sending True North their name and what you think distinguishes them.
