KAMLOOPS,  B.C. — Residents got a chance to speak one-on-one with Kamloops emergency response members as part of the city's 'Emergency Services Day' on Saturday.

Kamloops Fire Rescue, local RCMP and BC Ambulance Service were among the teams who took part in the free event in the Aberdeen Mall parking lot.

The city says the focus of the event is to teach residents how to be better prepared for emergency events.

Along with speaker sessions, the day also included a bike rodeo where RCMP Bike Patrol members taught young ones how to conduct a proper safety check of your bike along with hand signals and helmet safety.
