We are absolutely thrilled to announce that, after Bruno and Friends on Wednesday with Chief Alan Brunacini and Chief John Norman, we are having a world premier screening of the Sony pictures movie Fireproof, free for all FDIC attendees. We arent sure yet which actors are attending but we will know Wednesday.

An Exclusive Presentation on a Landmark NIST Study ONLY at FDIC

This class will not be available with all the players anywhere else. This is the most significant fire study to date presented by the folks who have participated from the beginning:

Taming the Dragon
Thursday, April 10, 2008, 1:30 pm-3:15 pm
Moderator: Battalion Chief Jerry Tracy, Fire Department of New York
Panel: Dan Madrzykowski and Steve Kerber, National Institute of Standards and Technology George Healy and John Ceriello, Fire Department of New York, Rich Edgeworth, Chicago (IL) Fire Department, John Skip Coleman, (ret.) Toledo (OH) Department of Fire and Rescue, and Peter McBride, Ottawa Fire Services

This panel will share cutting-edge research on fighting fires against wind in high-rise structures. Research has been ongoing for the past two years, with the most recent segment of live fire studies conducted in New York City this past February. A panel of engineers and fire department members will expound on their involvement in this project and the profound change that is taking place in their respective departments. The consequence of the research will enhance firefighter safety and efficiency when fighting these types of fires. Join us Thursday exclusively at FDIC at 130 in room B Westin Hotel Grand.
