Mercy Life Line air ambulance service is celebrating 35 years of accident-free service with a free, family-friendly community safety expo on Saturday, June 29.

Mercy will have a Life Line helicopter available for tours, joined by a chopper from the Missouri State Highway Patrol. In addition, you’ll see the equipment the Springfield Police Department’s Special Response Team uses in emergencies, can peek inside an emergency communications trailer and check out the Springfield Fire Department’s huge ladder truck.

Kids can also take a trip through Safe Kids’ “Safety Town” and complete a tricycle obstacle course that teaches the rules of the road. Along with free games and lots of prizes, food trucks will be on hand with snacks for purchase.

The Mercy Life Line Free Community Safety Expo starts at 9:00 a.m. and will go until noon Saturday, June 29. Attendees are instructed to use the parking lot south of the Mercy Clinic – Smith Glynn Callaway, located at 3188 South Maryland Avenue in Springfield.
