The December meeting of MIFDI will be hosted once again by FIRE TECH & SAFETY on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 (NOTE: This is the THIRD Wednesday).The meeting will be held at the Fire Tech & Safety facility located at 90 Progress Ave, Tyngsborough (Just off Rt.3). MIFDI last met at Fire Tech in December 2015.
Fire Tech always arranges an informative presentation for MIFDI on the latest in fire, safety, and rescue products. This year we will be offered a look at DRONES in the fire service and the benefits they could play at fires in large structures,
wild-land fires and Haz-Mat incidents to be able to get an overview of a situation from the safety of a Command Post. We may even see Drones equipped with
thermal cameras and tracking devices for missing firefighters. Drones may be a part of the inventory for the fire service in the future and we must stay open-minded and ahead of the curve with regards to another tool for our toolbox.
Following the presentation, we will be allowed a tour of Fire Tech’s service facility and equipment showroom. It the weather permits, we may even get a Drone demonstration.
0930 Coffee, 1000 Presentation, 1130 Facility Tour, 1145 Business Meeting, 1200 Lunch
FROM RT. 128 or RT. 495, take Rt. 3 North to Exit 35 (Rt. 113). Take Rt. 113 West to the first left just over the bridge, that is Cummings Rd. Continue one-half mile to Progress Ave. on the left. NOTE: Progress Ave is a horse-shoe street so take the second left and Fire Tech is the first building on the right. They may not have their sign up yet so look for the #90.
