For the first time ever, several emergency services teams will come together to present Emergency Services Day.
The day will take place on May 14 and will combine Emergency Preparedness Week with National Police Week. The free event will provide the opportunity for residents to meet their emergency response community.
Taking place in the North Parking Lot of Aberdeen Mall on Sat., May 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., this event features a variety of emergency services partners, ranging from Kamloops Fire Rescue, local RCMP, BC Ambulance Service and many others.
More than two dozen partners will be on site, including CN and CP Police, Conservation Service, the Air 4 RCMP Helicopter, the BCSPCA, and Emergency Management BC. Kids are reminded to bring out their bikes to take part of the Annual Bike Rodeo. Although the Bike Rodeo is free, registration is mandatory. To register, call 250-828-3500 with registration #257482, or visit www.kamloops.ca/ezreg.
Residents can also bring their bike out to register for the 529 Garage Project, which is an anti-theft online registration application for bikes. RCMP Auxiliary Officers will be on hand to help with registry, or if you download the app and pre-register your bike, you can receive an anti-theft decal, normally purchased for $13. For more information on the 529 Garage Project, or to download the app, visit www.project529.com/garage.
