Citizens meet and interact with first responders

WIBW – September 10, 2018

First responders gathered in the parking lot of the Kansas Expocentre for the 12th annual Emergency Services Showcase.

The public was invited to meet and interact with firefighters, police officers, search and rescue teams and more.

They also learned what to do in the event of an emergency.

“We’ve heard stories of kids not know that, ‘this is firefighter coming in to save me,’ and they ran and they ended up dying,” Emergency Services Showcase Visionary Kasey Sturgeon said. “We don’t want kids or families to have to go through that.”

Along with Topeka police and fire departments, Washburn police and several search and rescue teams were there for kids to meet.
