Not in Our House
This year LION launched the cancer awareness campaign, Not in Our House. Focused on awareness, and signing a pledge of safety, the campaign was launched at FDIC in the LION booth. More information can be found online at www.NotinOurHouse.com.

Actors Eamonn Walker (Battalion Chief Wallace Boden), and Dave Eigenberg (Christopher Herrmann) from the “Chicago Fire” television show were in the LION booth, Friday, April 28th from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. The actors volunteered their time to provide show attendees with a photo opportunity to raise awareness for the Not in Our House campaign, and to raise money for non-profit, Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN).

Show attendees could enter a raffle for the chance to win a trip to the set of “Chicago Fire” during an actual film set shooting or a leather helmet signed by the cast of “Chicago Fire”. All money raised with the raffle as well as a Fill The Boot collection will be donated to FCSN to support firefighters and their families suffering from cancer.

Demo Presentations
2017 is the first year that LION and BullEx joined their booths together under the theme of ‘Ultimate Safety’. To integrate the booths, a demo presentation area showcased new and updated products from LION and BullEx. The Demo area also enabled hands on training for show attendees.

The HEAT
As in years past, LION and BullEx provided 2017 show attendees the opportunity to gain hands-on training with lead instructors from the International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) during the HEAT. Participants got to try LION turnouts, helmets, gloves and boots, while learning about modern fire behavior using BullEx’s Digital Fire Training Container.

Mark your calendars for next year!
