MARK THE DATE
June 7th - 9th 2024, Wolfville, Nova Scotia
FDIC Atlantic has become a focal point for educational seminars directed at emergency responders. Those attending, come from New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland & Labrador and beyond. FDIC Atlantic has been named one of the top 4 Firefighting Conferences in Canada by Firefighting in Canada Magazine.
Firefighting is a dangerous and increasingly complex endeavour. Firefighters in Atlantic Canada face new challenges every day! We must deal with changes to firefighting technologies, providing medical help to the public, hazardous materials response, water and ice rescue, rescue from high places, industrial rescue, terrorist threats and more. We also need education and training now more than ever to protect the public. But in today's world, the resources to do this are increasingly scarce. Financial constraints are tough and the personal time firefighters spend in training is time spent away from family and other obligations.
Our Mission Statement
The Nova Scotia Chapter of the International Society of Fire Service Instructors is committed to reducing the loss of life, property and damage to the environment by providing quality fire training and education for the fire service in Atlantic Canada through the FDIC Atlantic Conference.
The Nova Scotia Chapter of the International Society of Fire Service Instructors
The Nova Scotia Chapter of the International Society of Fire Service Instructors is a nonprofit, professional association, dedicated to providing training and education to the Fire Service. We introduced the Fire Department Information Conference (FDIC Atlantic) in 1995. The objective was to provide firefighters in Atlantic Canada with the type of learning experience that had previously required expensive travel, registration and accommodation in Ontario or the USA. Through the generosity of Corporate Sponsors and our instructors who volunteer their time to present topics, we are able to keep costs down and pass these savings along to our participants.
Message from the President
Without the support of you and our instructors, we would not be able to continue to present one of the top firefighter education events in Canada.
Thank you and see you in June
