FDIC 2012 was another great event for firefighters and fire industry representatives alike. There was estimated to be over 30,000 attendants at this year’s FDIC with over 5,000 firefighters engaging in the many training events and stations provided during this infamous week long educational series in Indianapolis, Indiana. There was a lot of learning as well as a lot of laughs and even some sentimental moments, especially during the Fallen Brothers of 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. If you have a moment, check out our friend’s at Penn Care and their blog post/video here on this emotional stair climb event, complete with bagpipes and hundreds of firefighters remembering their fallen brothers from that tragic event in September years ago.
Nassau Fire Apparatus representatives were there to catch up with old friends and clients and to keep up with the latest and greatest in the fire and EMS industry. Of the massive crew that makes up Nassau Fire, in attendance this year at FDIC 2012 was Robert Buglione, Vice President and Operations Manager; Pete Caliendo, Executive Vice President and Sales; and Howie Boynton, Sales Representative.
In support of all the product lines Nassau Fire represents, team members were seen at multiple booths, such as Braun Industries, Marque and McCoy Miller, E-ONE Fire Apparatus, Genesis Rescue, and ASAP Off-Road Emergency Vehicles. Here are a few photos from each booth:
