WESTFIELD, Ind.—Firefighters from around the world will flock to Indianapolis next week for the annual Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC). As Indianapolis prepares to host this event, the City of Westfield is preparing as well—it’s the host of four live training classes.
FDIC’s live training classes match leading fire instructors with the very people who protect our communities’ everyday—our firefighters and first responders. Westfield is among a few communities in central Indiana hosting some of over 20 FDIC hands-on training classes.
“This is an honor, “ said Division Chief Garry Harling. “And, we’re really proud to showcase Westfield to firefighters from all over world.”
Firefighters attending FDIC classes in Westfield will use buildings for the US 31 project as their training ground. The conference, which brings thousands of firefighters into Indianapolis, runs all next week at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium downtown.
