Not in Our House

  • Launch of the cancer awareness campaign, Not in Our House. Focused on awareness, and signing a pledge of safety, the campaign was launched at FDIC within the LION booth. More information can be found online at
  • 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 28 from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. for a photo opportunity to raise awareness for the Not in Our House campaign, and to raise money for the non-profit Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN).
  • Show attendees could enter a raffle for the opportunity either win a trip to the set of “Chicago Fire” during an actual film set shooting, or win 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

LION added a Demo presentation area, where we showcased new and updated products by LION and BullEx. The Demo area allowed us to give hands on training to the show attendees.


  • LION and BullEx provided show attendees the opportunity to gain hainds-on training with lead instructors from the International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) during the HEAT.
  • Participants experienced 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!
