90 days….it is just 90 days 12 hours and 29 minuets until FDIC 2012!!! I am starting to get the itch to be back in Indy and to get some of the best training available, from some of the greatest minds in the fire service.
I will also be presenting my class “Engine Company Emergencies”, like I have said before it is quite a humbling experience to be listed as an instructor with some of the best and brightest that the Fire Service has to offer. It is also humbling to know that some of these same experts when evaluating classes for this year thought my class worthy enough to be presented. I really think that my class is going to be better than the one I presented last year and I am looking forward to sharing some of my thoughts, opinions, and solutions with interested individuals who feel the same about the fire service as I do. It is a oppourtunity that would not be possible without Fire Engineering, Penwell, or the FDIC Conference and all of the people who are involved in making it possible.
The video below is from last years opening ceremonies during the first general session, that is always held on the first day of class room session classes. If it does not get you fired up then check your pulse!
Also do not forget to check out all of the other activities that FDIC has to offer from a more social standpoint.
Bottom line is folks if you have never gone, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!!!!! If you are really a fireman, and you “get it” how can you miss a chance to go to something like this. People who just use this job as a paycheck then this probably is not for you, but for true fireman, this is a CAN NOT MISS!!! Be sure to sign up, get your flight, get your hotel room, and do it TODAY!!!!
Be sure to keep following along on twitter, I will be tweeting from the conference, and checking in on Four Square at my locations so if you wanna know what I am doing, meet me for a beer, or get an idea about the conference and are unable to attend you have got to follow along on twitter @averagejakeff
As usual thanks for reading, spread the word, and STAY SAFE!!
