08/05/09 175 W - + 6 - 8 Modern Apparatus Needed For Parade on North Carolina's Main Street

With just a couple weeks left to the state firefighter's convention, e.g. the South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo, the planners of that Saturday's apparatus parade need your help. They're looking for more modern apparatus from around the state to participate. The first-annual North Carolina's Main Street Fire Parade starts at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22. The rigs'll roll down on the recently reopened Fayetteville Street, starting at the State Capitol. Read this FireNews article about the parade need.

And for those attending the conference, you can hear about the history of fire apparatus in North Carolina, as part of Mr. Blogger's history presentation on Friday, Aug. 21. Raleigh Fire Department Historian Mike Legeros presents a workshop on North Carolina Firefighting History from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. in Room 306C of the Raleigh Convention Center. We'll cover a couple centuries of the state's fire service history. Just don't be alarmed if the presenter is wearing something other than a Hawaiian shirt. You're still in the right room.
