Team Lakeland is Ready for FDIC International! Are You?

The rooms are booked, the gear is packed, the collateral printed, and Lakeland’s Fire sales team cannot wait to set up booth 1201 at FDIC in a few weeks. The Fire Department Instructors Conference, or FDIC, is the “World’s Fair” of the fire industry. Firefighters and vendors come together under one roof for fellowship, comradery, friendly competitions, and to review the latest innovations in turnout gear, extrication gear, wildland fire, and more. 


FDIC would not be the exciting event it is without the Firefighters Combat Challenge to accompany it. Fire and Rescue professionals compete in athletic firefighting obstacles and relays, racing against not only time, but the elements as well. Team Lakeland will be geared up in the latest Lakeland Fire innovations and ready for action. Be sure to stop by booth 1201 and see FireFit Europe two-time world champion Sean Sullivan. Sean recently competed in Hannover, Germany wearing Lakeland Stealth gear and placed first in the over-40 category of FireFit Europe’s Championship. 

Lakeland has poured years of tradition, passion, and innovation into all our protective fire gear from our B2 coat and pants and our dual-certified gear to our premium Lakeland Stealth turnout gear, with an athletic cut designed for maximum flexibility, protection, and comfort. 

When you factor in our LazerMax trim, Lakeland’s patented, reflective trim on the knee, arms, and shoulders, you have the ultimate set of protective turnout gear with maximum visibility and comfort covered. We will have various sets of gear on display at the Lakeland booth 1201 for our visitors to try on and experience the “Lakeland difference”. 



We invite you to come by booth 1201 and chat with the Lakeland Fire team, try on our turnout gear, and see what all the hype is about. Don’t forget to register for a chance to win a Yeti cooler, Brumates, Amazon gift cards, and more!  

Indianapolis better get ready! We are looking forward to making memories and can’t wait to see you there!
