Shepherdsville Fire Department celebrates 90th birthday with annual fire expo

Posted: Updated:

SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a 90th birthday bash at the Shepherdsville Fire Department.

Not for a person, but for the department itself.

The celebration was part of an annual fire expo held by the Shepherdsville Fire Department.

Each year, the department is opened up to the community, providing a closer look at how everything works.

That includes demonstrations of how different equipment is used and how rescues are done.

"It's a big hit with the younger crowd for children. They like coming up here and getting to see the guys in their gear and actually doing the work. It's a pretty nice event," Chief Layne Troutman said.

A few hundred people turned out for Saturday's birthday bash and expo.
