  • FDIC 2001

    Is anyone going to attend FDIC 2001 in Indianapolis? I'm going for the first time, and was wondering what to expect. Also, any info on things to do after the day of learning is done?

  • #2
    Lumpy, What classes are you taking at FDIC? I was there last year, I took Live fire training, Flashover simulator and Engine company operations, the only reason I am not attending this year is that I am going to medic school, it was some of the best training that I have ever attended, you will meet people from all over the world and you will work hard, but you will have a great time, Let us know when you get back how it was!

      Axman... I'm taking RIT Team operations, and Firefighter survival (although I already have it, I'm taking it to train my own engine crew when I return), and Ladder Company Operations. I originally signed up for the same classes you did, but they were full by the time my app got there. I also was accepted for the Managing Rescue Ops class, and will probably drop the ladders class in order to fit that in. What's the nightlife like?

        Lumpy, When I was down there the rit class and firefighter survival classes were held around where we were training, you should learn a lot, we used old government project housing and hopefully that is what you will be using, as far as the nightlife, I hear that it is interesting but I was only down there for the two days of hot training so I was really beat after a full day so if I wasnt in the hotel pool I was sleeping, we had to be up at 5:30am to catch the bus for downtown. Also if you ever do get into the live fire class and the flashover class make sure that you schudule the flashover class FIRST you dont want to do that type of training with wet gear its no fun at all!

              The IFD firefighters are great hosts! You will have a lot of fun and it's a nice city. I've been there twice to attend the FDIC and am not about to miss it this year.

                  I have been going for the last 4 years. The night life is good. The top floor of Circle Center Mall has 5 bars, there is Broadripple section of town out northwest that has 2 blocks of nothing but bars, and all the big name instructors and FF's goto Ike and Jonesy's bar downtown.

                    EXPECT BIG! This years FDIC should be bigger than ever. The convention center has been expanded. There are new hotels, bars, and restaurants all within walking distance downtown. The largest hotel still under construction should be finished by FDIC 2001. Make sure you stop by the information center, and Local 416's booth for times and places of the weeks activities. The only rules for the week are: LEARN, HAVE FUN, and most important, BE SAFE!

                      lumpy, you are in for a treat! The classes are the best around and the instructors and information are great! The night life is good-try the Slippery Noodle and any one of the 6 Hooters locations ( can find them on the web ). Enjoy yourself and have a good time-maybe we'll see ya' there, I have some of the same classes as you. Good luck!

                          Just stop in any firehouse for directions and suggestions. Make sure to visit the Union Hall on Saturday for the Pumper Pull competition and the Open House. Hope you all have a pleasant stay in Indy. If you make it to the North side of town be sure to stop in at any of the stations in Fishers.

                            Thanks to all... I'll try to get around the city, and see what I can. I fly in on Saturday, so maybe after checking in, I'll do a little touring. I appreciate all of the info, and invites. Mayebe I'll get to see some of you guys.

                              I'm going, went last year also, and I am attending every year. My brother lives there, and is a career firefighter. Indy is a great city! Stop by Union Hall Saturday March 3rd in the evening for the truck pull, and to just check things out. Circle Center Mall is great, as well as Gillians, I think that is how it is spelled. It's a great arcade/bar downtown. Hope everyone who goes has a great time.
