About 600 firefighters, fire marshals, fire chiefs and EMS responders from across the state are in Lubbock for training over the next few days.
The State Firemen's and Fire Marshals' Association of Texas kicked off their 138th Training Conference and Convention with a big exhibit on Saturday at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
Vendors debuted the latest techniques and technology in fire equipment and apparatus.
A memorial will take place on Sunday, followed by some training and business sessions next week.
The entire event took a year of preparation to put together.
Some of the events are open to the public. To find out which events, or to find more information about the conference, you can visit this website.
