The Islip Town Fire & EMS Museum & Education Centers excited to announce a new partnership with the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs (NYSAFC). The organizations have joined together to host the Metropolitan Fire/EMS Expo, which will debut in 2022 at a date and location to be announced.

The museum is very excited about this partnership, teaming up with this venerable organization that has conducted a statewide emergency services conference and exposition for more than 100 years. This collaboration will allow for an enhanced event that will feature exhibits highlighting new products and technologies in the industry, as well as educational seminars for emergency services personnel.

This is an exciting day for the New York metropolitan region, as this educational and enjoyable event will be geared toward local first responders and proceeds will benefit the fire/EMS museums on Long Island. These museums are manned by volunteers and help preserve the rich history of the fire/EMS service, which dates back to the late 1700s on Long Island.

The Islip Town Fire & EMS Museum & Education Center and NYSAFC look forward to working with local vendors and fire/EMS departments from the New York metropolitan area on this new endeavor. Look for more information on the New York Metropolitan Fire/EMS Expo on the museum and NYSAFC website in the coming months.
