The biggest giveaway we know of is coming out of the TECGEN XTREME booth.  (Booth 403).  Here are the details:

  • We will be in the TECGEN booth from 2 pm – 3 pm.
  • During our time in the booth they will be giving away branded collapsable water bottles to all visitors.
  • Some visitors during our time in the booth will randomly receive Camelback hydration packs.
  • Here is the best part; every visitor to the booth during the show will have their badge scanned.  TECGEN will then select 6 random winners who will receive a set of gear. Similar to what we will be wearing.


You’ll see us throughout the day as we drop in on some friends including:

We will wrap up the evening at the NFFF’s Stop, Drop, Rock ‘n’ Roll dinner and live auction / 7 pm – 11 pm @ the Indian Roof Ballroom.

Our main mission will be to climb in the FDIC 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb / 130 pm & the Lucus Oil Stadium.  We’ll be hooking up with The Fire Critic and Captain Wines for the climb.  W e’ll be sporting our TECGEN XTREME gear.  After the climb the FDT crew is hitting the road because a couple of them are on duty Saturday.  I’ll be around until the  Fire Critic and  Iron Firemen Meet Up / 830 pm @ the Hard Rock Cafe and then hitting the road for a late night drive back up to the Motor City.

Register To Climb

 There are still 84 Fallen Brothers that need to be honored at the stair climb.  Sign up now!  343, Never Forget!
