The FDIC is well known for its exhibition – the largest exhibition of fire apparatus and equipment in the country. But what truly allows the FDIC to stand apart from other fire service tradeshows is its conference component. The best trainers in the world come to the FDIC to instruct thousands of students through H.O.T. (hands-on training) evolutions and workshops and myriad classroom sessions. The fire service leaders that assemble at FDIC are dedicated to you: firefighters and fire officers alike. Below are links to audio files from the FDIC’s main program, general sessions, and interviews conducted during the show.
