Fire-Dex at FDIC 2024

The Fire-Dex team just wrapped up another incredible FDIC in Indianapolis. From new product launches to large giveaways to meeting face-to-face with some of our heroes, it was a great week of connection and learning.

A major theme of this year’s conference was preparedness. In their keynote speeches, Chief Scott Thompson of The Colony, Texas and Chief Jason Hoevelmann of Florissant Valley, Missouri both stressed the importance of being prepared for whatever comes your way.

Fighting fires isn’t just about the moment, it’s about the moments leading up to that crucial decision that could save lives.

At Fire-Dex, we really resonated with message. At our booth, we featured some of our latest product innovations, the FDXL90 and our AeroFlexTM line of turnout gear. Both of these launches are designed to give you greater flexibility on every call so that you can be prepared for every situation.

Fire Department Coffee was also on hand for our annual customer appreciation event at Crane Bay Event Center. We had a great time meeting and mingling with hundreds of guests—not to mention how much fun we had with the photo booth!

All in all, FDIC 2024 was a great time to meet new people, connect with old friends, and learn new things. But most of all, it was a great reminder of our mission: To serve those who serve.

We can’t wait to see you all at FDIC 2025!
