Emergency Expo

Event Details

Peoria County Government hosts an Emergency Expo every summer. Meet a firefighter and try on gear. Watch a medical helicopter land. Investigate a Coast Guard boat. Check out what happens in an ambulance. Walk through a tactical response truck.

Familes can get up close to more than 20 pieces of emergency equipment and meet area first responders at this free community event. At the Emergency Expo you can see K9 units, escape from the fire safety house, turn on the sirens in a squad car, explore an animal control truck, and maybe even spray a fire hose! The event is held in the parking area between Bergner's and Dick's Sporting Goods off of Route 91.

Save the date for the 2018 Expo - June 6, 2018!
