Air Rider hovercraft has been expanding its marketing efforts into the SAR and First Responders market and has received very encouraging feed back from Canadian Fire Departments across the country. Air Rider hovercraft leveraging this interest attended the Fire Department Instructors Conference FDIC in Indianapolis Indiana by launching a recently taped ice rescue video featuring the Air Rider AR45 Rescue Model hovercraft. Air Rider hovercraft staff Brian Thiessen and Greg Swanson met several AR45 Rescue interested attendees over the 3 days that the show was on from all over the world. Based on the positive response the company is already looking ahead to displaying craft at next year’s show.
FDIC 2014 proved to be the largest FDIC ever with nearly 32,000 attendees traveling from 55 countries. We are honored and humbled by the high attendance and recognize the committment both attendees and exhibitors make in order to participate in this annual event. We resolve that our 87-year-old mission, to train the fire service, will continue to be our focus for FDIC INTERNATIONAL 2015.
Here are a few highlights from the FDIC on-site ATTENDEE Survey.*
• 31,936 attendees were present at FDIC 2014
• 1,317 international attendees from 55 countries were present at FDIC 2014
