Monday

It’s Day 1 of FDIC 2014, and that means lots of hands-on training and conference workshops. Students have packed on the buses and headed out to various training evolution sites around Indianapolis. Others are participating in some of the most in-depth education the fire service has to offer.

Fire Manufacturers Provide Fire Equipment to Fire Hands-On Training Evolutions

Months of preparation and setup have come down to this: it’s the day before FDIC 2014 in Indianapolis, and top-flight fire service instructors from around the nation are putting the final touches on the hands-on training evolutions that will take place tomorrow. Students are arriving and getting ready to take part in the world’s largest firefighter training conference, and the city itself is undergoing a quiet transformation as signage welcoming the fire service goes up everywhere downtown. But that’s not the only sign of FDIC here: there are also scores of apparatus winding their way through the city streets toward the convention center, symbols of that palpable sense of brotherhood and unity that will be on display this week for the world to witness.

Check out some street scenes from the Monday before FDIC 2014.
