Tucson Firefighter Band Finishes 2nd in National Competition

Four current and retired firefighters from the Tucson Fire Department (TFD) took 2nd place in online voting in the band competition for the national Fire Department Instructor's Conference (FDIC). Known as The Turnouts, the TFD band fell 200 votes shy of winning the top honor and the chance to perform at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis during the FDIC national convention in April.

Meanwhile, publicity about the band led to other gigs, including a performance at 2nd Saturdays Downtown, Monterey Court and other venues.
