Re: OFFICIAL STATEMENT REFERENCE 2015 FOOTHILLS FIRE & LIFE SAFETY EXPO
Lenoir, NC 2015 Foothills Fire & Life Safety Expo – The 2015 event due to take place from 10am to 3pm this Saturday, October 3, 2015 on the grounds of Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute has been cancelled.
The latest weather forecast for this weekend has led to the cancellation on the grounds of public safety. With increased potential for heavy rain, increase in wind gusts and uncertainty in the atmosphere, the event committee has decided to postpone the event due to safety concerns.
The safety of participants, volunteers and spectators is and always has been our top priority. After careful consideration with event officials, the Office of Emergency Management, and the National Weather Service out of Greenville-Spartanburg, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel this year’s Foothills Fire & Life Safety Expo.
As a result, we are providing registered participants in the 2015 event with multiple options to accommodate this unfortunate turn of events. Participants may choose from one of the following options:
- Caldwell County Fire Rescue Association will apply their registration to the rescheduled event once announced; OR
- Receive a refund of your registration fee for the 2015 Foothills Fire & Life Safety Expo; OR
- Allow your registration fee to be donated to Caldwell County Fire Rescue Association’s prevention activities fund.
In the very near future we will communicate to all interested parties the rescheduled events date. We want to express our deepest thanks to all of the participants, volunteers and spectators who have long trained, worked and traveled to support the Association, Emergency Services agencies and area businesses in the region through this amazing annual event. We hope everyone will continue to support Emergency Services and the Foothills Fire & Life Safety Expo!
