The October meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021. We will be hosted by the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services and the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy courtesy of State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey. We will meet in Classroom 125 (Check the welcome screen in the lobby in the event of a room location change).
The training program will be provided MIFDI Treasurer/Past President Michael McLeieer offering his annual recap of the 2021 FDIC (Fire Department Instructor Conference). Those members in attendance will be provided with a copy of a USB thumb drive with many of the training presentations offered at the FDIC. Following Michael’s program, member Ira Hoffman will have a brief presentation that he created titled “Surviving A Fire – Seconds Count”. We also hope to get an update on happenings within DFS and the MFA.
