Wichita HOT is an annual fire training conference held in Wichita, Kansas. Each year we assemble some of the top fire service instructors to provide high-quality, aggressive, and low-cost training to firefighters. We are proud to have hosted students from across the US and Canada, from departments large and small, both career and volunteer. Wichita HOT is a not-for-profit, cooperative venture between the FOOLs of Oz and the Wichita Fire Department.
Deputy Chief Michael Walker is a 25+ year veteran of the Oklahoma City Fire Department. He has served a training officer, Hazardous Materials and Technical Rescue officer, assistant fire coordinator for Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center Fire Training, and Task Force Leader for Oklahoma Task Force 1. He has instructed numerous times at FDIC and written for Fire Engineering, Fire Rescue, and Urban Firefighter. We're proud to welcome him this year as he gives our Keynote Speech to open the event and teaches a Breakout Lecture.
The Wichita Fire Department generously provides the apparatus, facilities and equipment used during this event. Without their continued support Wichita H.O.T. would be impossible.
