South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo
The South Atlantic FIRE RESCUE Expo will return to Raleigh Aug. 7-10, 2013. This year’s theme is “Service with Passion.” We’ve seen the passion for the fire service grow every year as our attendance grows. In 2012 we had over 4,000 attendees and we hope to attract more this year with all of the exciting things we have to offer.
The Brotherhood Bash will return bigger than ever to raise money for great causes, including the N.C. Firefighters Fund scholarships for firefighters and the N.C. Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The Brotherhood Bash will be held at Napper Tandy’s on Fri., Aug. 9 on West Street.
The South Atlantic FIRE RESCUE Expo Annual Golf Tournament will be at the Pine Hollow Golf Club Aug. 6 and 7 and can accommodate up to 128 golfers. The entrance fee is $100 per person and lunch is included each day.
The Fire Truck Parade will be held on Sat., Aug. 10 at noon with trophies to be awarded in several categories. Come out and cheer on the departments who share their special trucks with us.
New for this year is the South Atlantic FIRE RESCUE Expo BBQ Throwdown on Fri. Aug. 9. Up to 25 teams will compete by cooking nearly 3000 pounds of BBQ on Thursday night. Friday morning each team will be judged and the BBQ will then be sold to the masses during lunch that day. The proceeds from the sale of the BBQ will go to benefit the N.C. Firefighters Fund scholarships.
The NC Brotherhood Pipes and Drums and Honor Guard are returning this year for another spectacular show. They will play for the Opening Ceremonies, kick off the opening of the vendor hall, march in the parade, and play at other various spots for attendees.
As if all of the these events are not enough, we will have a great schedule of hands on training and workshops to chose from this year. Randy Mantooth from TV’s Emergency! returns this year to once again host the largest expo in the Southeast with over 150,000 square feet of exhibitors showcasing the latest and most advanced technology in fire service equipment and apparatus available today.
We know our members provide their communities with “Service with Passion”. The South Atlantic FIRE RESCUE Expo is our way of showing you that we are passionate about you, our members, and want to do all we can to make sure you know it. Please join us this year in Raleigh August 7-10 and see what we have to offer the North Carolina and surrounding states’ fire service.
