Welcome back to Indy


We are happy to announce the return of Pipe Major Eric Albert and Drum Instructor Jeremy Downs for FDIC this year. Please join us for another great season of Piping and Drumming, our usual smattering of performances, and of course, a tribute to one of the most influential people in the fire service, Chief Bobby Halton, who sadly passed just before Christmas.

To register for the 2023 FDIC workshop and/or to register as a performer for the show, please click the button below to go to the registration page. See you in April!

Indianapolis Public Safety Pipes and Drums

We are made up of public safety professionals from the Indianapolis Metropolitan area, including Marion, Hendricks, Hamilton, Johnson, and other surrounding counties and communities. Our ranks contain firefighters, police officers, EMS personnel, dispatchers and many other professions within the public safety community.

We formed the band with the main purpose of honoring fallen heroes in the city, state and region. Of all our performances, we still hold line of duty funerals to be our true calling.

Please explore the website. We will post upcoming performances, photos, and recordings of performances. You can subscribe to our blog and be notified of news. We also have a store where band related merchandise can be purchased. Thanks for visiting.
