Henderson, Nev. – The City of Henderson Fire and Police departments are seeking businesses, civic groups and non-profit organizations to exhibit in the Henderson Community Safety Expo 2017-National Night Out. The expo will be held on Saturday, October 14 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Henderson Fire Training Center, 401 Parkson Rd.

This year Henderson Fire Department will celebrate its 75th anniversary in conjunction with the expo. Originally placed into service in 1942 to protect the Basic Magnesium Plant, it went on to become the Henderson Fire Department with the city’s incorporation in 1953. The public will be invited to watch firefighters give live demonstrations of fire suppression, vehicle extrication, technical rescue and emergency medical services.

Henderson’s Fire and Police departments host the expo annually to increase community awareness of, and access to, the public safety resources available in Southern Nevada. The expo incorporates National Night Out, a community-building campaign that promotes public safety and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, better places to live. 

Exhibitors may only showcase products and services that promote personal safety, crime and fire prevention, risk reduction, injury prevention, and health and wellness. Interactive demonstrations and activities that appeal to all age groups are encouraged.

The event is open to the public and admission is free. More than 4,000 attendees are expected.

The exhibitor registration fee of $125 or $25 for non-profit organizations includes one 10-foot by 10-foot tent canopy, one 8-foot table and two chairs. Registration forms are due September 21.

Exhibitor registration forms are available at cityofhenderson.com/fire or contact the Henderson Fire Department at 702-267-2222.
