The Jackson Fire Expo Sunday event at Stark State College will be held as scheduled. We have been in discussions with the Dean of the college to be sure that we will not get a last minute cancelation again.
The Vendor Expo will begin at 7:30 AM and the program will begin at 9:00 AM.
Without the support of the Vendors, this Expo would not be possible every year. Please remember to visit the vendors and support them. This year will be difficult for some vendors, as they lost a day of sales with the Expo being canceled for Saturday. Please, if you are considering a purchase and you see the item for sale by a vendor at the Jackson Fire Expo, consider buying the item from the local vendor. Without the vendors, there is no Jackson Fire Expo.
