We Want Your Apparatus

The New London County Fire Chiefs Association is hosting the 2016 Connecticut State Firefighters Convention this year at the East Lyme High School in the Flanders section of East Lyme, Connecticut. Due to the late notice of the convention being relocated, the traditional Sunday Parade will not be held for this year’s convention. Instead the N.L.C.F.C.A  Convention Committee will be hosting an Apparatus Show in the parking lot of the East Lyme High School on Saturday, September 17th, 0900 hours till…??

The N.L.C.F.C.A Convention Committee discussed many ideas for the weekend and decided that an Apparatus showing would be a great addition to the Convention. We would like to see some pieces we haven’t seen for a while. Due to the late hour for preparation for the 2016 Convention, this Apparatus Show will be a “static”, Non-Points, Non-Trophy event…..  So…..
