This is the 11th year the event has been held in Broome County. It was started in 2008 as a way to welcome residents to their community Fire Houses and boost volunteer numbers.

Broome County has 31 volunteer fire departments and over one-thousand firefighters.  Officials say emergency fire and medic crews responded to 24,428 fire calls and 31,152 medical calls last year.
