Antique Fire Trucks are on display in Port Crane.

The Broome County Firefighters' Association sponsored the 5th annual Fire Expo.

It was held at the Port Crane Fire Station.

It's an opportunity for fire and E-M-S personnel to meet with apparatus and equipment vendors.

There was also demonstrations by the Broome County's Water Rescue Dive Response and Haz Mat teams.

Old and new fire trucks were on display for all ages.

"We encourage kids...firemen love kids, ya know, they have a soft spot in their heart for 'em. So, so we love the kids to come out, climb around the trucks and stuff like that," said Jim Cummings, Vice President of the Broome County Firefighter's Association.

The day wrapped up with an antique fire truck show.

Awards were given for the oldest, best appearance, and the vehicle that travelled the furthest.
