Each May, FIRE EXPO becomes the leading event for Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Rescue, and Public Safety Equipment in the United States. The world’s leading manufacturers and representatives of emergency equipment and related items will be exhibiting at the Show. You can expect to see the latest innovations in fire fighting equipment, apparatus, education, training, health safety and overall emergency response.
Our goal is to have over 400 exhibitors displaying in over 700 booth spaces, including over 250 emergency vehicles on display for you to look over and compare.
FIRE EXPO is sponsored by the Lancaster County Firemen’s Association, a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. All proceeds from the exhibition are used to support Lancaster County fire fighters and emergency services personnel with education, training, and related programs and services.
