And then it was August. The Raleigh Fire Expo starts in two more weeks, e.g. the South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo at the Raleigh Convention Center. That's the umbrella name for three concurrent events, the annual meeting of the state firefighter's association, the annual meeting of the state fire chief's association, and the annual expo for vendors and dealers and other interested parties.
Yours Truly, Historian Mike Legeros, is again conducting his workshop on North Carolina Firefighting History. That's 90 minutes of hysterical, historical excitement on Friday, August 12, starting at 1:30 p.m. See slides from last year's presentation, which will also include a short segment on researching fire department histories. What about a presentation on incident photography? Or social media and blogging? Maybe another year.
(Either might be great panel discussions. Any volunteers to share the stage?) Here are some photo's of Mike's,
from last year's Expo.
Here's everything that's happening, from the program schedule. Plus a plug for the Raleigh Fire Department Museum, which will be open that Saturday, and with shuttle service from the Convention Center:
The shadowed NCSFA SAFRE slogan poster “Commitment” for 2011 is a Lee Wilson photo featuring Stony Hill firefighters – from a SHFD live burn at night in Oct 2010. Wake is represented again and I am proud! http://www.southatlanticfirerescueexpo.c..
