Going to the Show! See You in Indy.

FDIC logo

I hope to see all of my loyal followers (both of them) at FDIC in a few short weeks. I’ll be presenting “From the X-Box to the Box Alarm” on Thursday-April 22, 2010 at 10:30am in Room 127-128. There’s room for 308 of my closest, most personal friends so there’s really no excuse for not joining me! LOL

Here’s the description from the FDIC web site and participant guide:

From the X-Box to the Box Alarm: Leadership in Today’s Firehouse
Deputy Fire Coordinator Tiger Schmittendorf, Erie County (NY) Department of Emergency Services

How do you motivate today’s recruits away from the X-Box long enough to answer the box alarm? This question builds consensus that the majority of the challenges you face are in the firehouse, not on the fireground. This class addresses the challenges of today’s fire service leaders in attracting and retaining the appropriate quantity and quality of firefighters they need to support the delivery of emergency services in their communities. Learn to combat these challenges with solutions that are right in front of you. BASIC

Furthermore, you can probably catch me hanging out at the Fire-Rescue Magazine / FirefighterNation.com / Fire-EMS Blogs.com booth #3755 from time to time throughout the week. I’ll be arriving on Tuesday afternoon and won’t be leaving until I finish my live Internet BlogTalkRadio show with the FireCritic and FireDaily on FirefighterNetcast from 9:30-10:30am+ on Saturday morning from the same booth.

We’ll be discussing my FDIC presentation, my www.runtothecurb.com project and the importance of storytelling in the fire service.

If you can’t catch me in between, you can certainly find me at the MeetUp at Indy:

  • When: Friday April 23rd – 8pm
  • Where: Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery just blocks away from the Convention Center at 10 West Washington.
  • What: Blogger/FireEMSBlogs.com/Firefighter Nation/Fire Rescue Magazine meetup.

The event is being sponsored by the great folks at: Fire-Rescue Magazine / FirefighterNation.com / Fire-EMS Blogs.com booth #3755. Hit me up at the show for some free drink tickets. However, I can’t be responsible for your resulting actions!

I’m really excited about the opportunities that the show, conference and networking gigs will offer. I can’t wait to see you there.

Check back for more info soon on other presentation dates, times and locations.

UPDATED FROM ORIGINAL POST: SEPTEMBER 25, 2009

I just received notice that I’ve been asked to teach “Leadership in the Firehouse: Recruitment & Retention – Rescue and Recovery” at FDIC 2010 in Indianapolis, IN.

Needless to say, I’m pretty excited and honored to be presenting at one of the largest conferences of firefighters in the world – where some 30,000 of our brothers and sisters gather.

I’ll be teaching a two-hour class on April 21, 22 or 23 – time and date to be announced soon. Stay tuned for details as they develop.
