FDIC International 2021 Coverage

FDIC sign in Indianapolis

The fire service’s annual sojourn will be somewhat different this year thanks to the pandemic, but the “summer school” edition in Indianapolis will feature the same extraordinary mix of firefighter training, brotherhood, and networking that sets it apart.

All week long at FDIC International 2021 we will have coverage of the show, which you can find here, including video and photos from the HOT sites, the Opening Ceremony, and exhibit news.

Below you’ll find some previews for next week, but go to our FDIC coverage page for even more from the show. Of course, there’s still time to register at www.fdic.com. Hope to see you in Indy!
