GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Around 400 firefighters are gathering this weekend at the KI Convention Center for the 45th annual Wisconsin State Firefighters Association convention.
Firefighters will get various training, handle business, and announce the “Firefighter of the Year” on Saturday.
Association Treasurer and spokesman Barry Kuenkel says one new training session this year is pet resuscitation. Other training sessions are being held on arson detection, tactical decision making, leadership and accountability, and troubleshooting equipment and maintenance.
The convention is also the largest display of trucks and new equipment in the state.
Around a dozen various trucks will be on hand and hundreds of fire equipment vendors will be showing off the latest for fire departments and personal use.
The public is invited to see everything Friday and Saturday starting at 9 a.m.
