Emergency Services Showcase

Date: Sept 09, 2017
Location(s): 
Helicopters, fire trucks, police cars, ambulances, canine units and much more will be on display on Saturday, September 9, during the 11th Annual Emergency Services Showcase. The event is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Kansas Expocentre east parking lot near the large electronic sign west of Topeka Boulevard in Topeka. Event Admission: FREE. Parking: FREE.

This is a family-friendly event, especially designed with children in mind, providing a hands-on opportunity for everyone to see, touch and learn more about emergency services and first responders in the Topeka/Shawnee County Metro Area.

So far 18 agencies (with more expected), including fire departments, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, volunteer groups, military, ambulance and helicopter services will participate in this year's event.

Opening ceremonies will take place at 1 p.m. with the Washburn Rural High School Air Force Junior ROTC presenting the colors.

In 2007, when Kasey Sturgeon was just six-years-old, she saw a segment of a television news story highlighting the fact that two children had perished in a fire because they were afraid of the firemen wearing turnout gear who were trying to rescue them. Topeka’s Annual Emergency Services Showcase is the result of Kasey’s efforts to want to help children understand that first responders are friends who are there to help them.
