07/03/12 227 W - + 4 - 2 Coming in August: Fire Photography Panel, Raleigh Fire History Talk

Speaking of the Raleigh Fire Expo in early August-- better known as the South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo, were the state's firefighters and state's fire chiefs and whole mess of exhibitors converge-- also mark your calendars for earlier on Friday, August 10. Yours Truly is participating in a pair of workshops:

On Scene - Emergency Services Photography
Friday, August 10
11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
Panel discussion moderated by Jeff Harkey (FireNews.net) and with panelists Mike Legeros (Raleigh/Wake County), Bob Bartosz (Rocky Mount/Nash County), Rob Brisley (Charlotte), and Mike Porowski (Charlotte/Mecklenburg County). Hopefully we'll have a hefty audience (in number, not mass) and thus a number of questions to answer or points to discuss. For a preview of what Legeros might talk about, see these sides (PDF) from a 2007 presentation on the subject.

Centennial History of the Raleigh Fire Department
Friday, August 10
3:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Looking back at two centuries of fire protection in the Capitol City, from Raleigh's creation in 1792, to the formation of the volunteer fire department in 1852, and the career fire department in 1912. Will also review general fire service history, and provide a contextual history of firefighting in North Carolina. For a preview, see any of the slides from earlier North Carolina Firefighting History or Raleigh Fire Department History talks.
