WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Fire fighters and emergency workers from across the state will come together for one of the region's biggest weekends in the fields of fire and rescue.
The 39th Annual Piedmont Fire Expo will be at the Winston-Salem Entertainment-Sports Complex Friday and Saturday. The event features emergency vehicles, equipment and training sessions for first responders.
Families can also get a hands-on learning experience at the expo. You can take tours of several fire trucks on location, take a look at some of the latest technology in the field, and talk to fire fighters about their jobs.
The expo is a fundraiser for the Forsyth County Fire and Rescue Association.
The 2014 Piedmont Fire Expo is Friday from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $5 and children younger than age 12 get in free.
WFMY News 2's Patrick Wright spent Friday morning at the Expo to show some of what you can expect to see if you attend.
