It’s time once again for the FDIC, beginning this April 16th, 2012, at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you haven’t attended the FDIC (Fire Department Instructors Conference) before, it is the largest fire fighter training conference of its kind in the world. It’s a week filled with hands-on training, classroom sessions, and a chance to meet and see all of the top manufacturers and suppliers in the industry today. We’re exited about this year’s FDIC with an HME line-up you won’t want to miss, including the unveiling of our newest fire apparatus, and one of the most innovative and forward thinking designs in the fire industry in decades, the HME Scorpion™.
The new HME RedFox™ will also be on display at this year’s FDIC. Released within just the last year, this economical commercial pumper was made for small communities and rural service. Built on a hard-working 35,000 GVWR commercial chassis with a 1250-GPM side mount pump and 1200-gallon T-shaped poly water tank, the RedFox™ is durable and built to last. With its smart-like-a-fox affordable price, you’ll want to catch this value-packed fire truck. Also be sure to check out the RedFox™ exclusive HME Safety-Zone™. The HME Safety Zone™ provides crews added protection in high traffic areas during fire and rescue operations. Watch it in action right here.
Another must-see is at this year’s FDIC is the HME CNG. This is the first compressed natural gas fire and rescue truck of its kind. Built on an HME Ahrens-Fox SFO® chassis, and finished with a brushed stainless steel body, with 750-GPM pump with 500-gallon tank, and a CNG generator powered MAD DOG™ (Compressed Air Foam System), the HME CNG isn’t just environmentally friendly, it’s a full fledged clean, green, firefighting machine.
