Mark your calendars; book your rooms. The state fireman's convention returns to Raleigh this year, and Yours Truly is a workshop presenter.

He'll present information, answer questions, and lead discussions on the history of fire protection in Raleigh, and other cities and towns. Historical topics to range from fire department to fire apparatus to even researching history itself. Bring your questions, or your own histories, and join the discussion!
