RIPON - The CHP helicopter is expected to be landing at Ripon’s Community Center as a highlight in the Menlo Park Police and Ripon Police 21st Annual Emergency Vehicle Show and Law Enforcement Recruitment Fair.

There are more than 100 vehicles expected to attend the event that is scheduled between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Fourth Street in Ripon.  A code-3 lights and siren parade of old emergency vehicles through the community is set for 1 p.m., according to the show organizer Darryl Lindsay, a dispatcher with the Menlo Park Police Department.

Volunteers and police Explorers from Ripon and Menlo Park are the backbone of the event that is making it all possible, according to Lindsay.

Scott Lindsay of the Ripon Police Department has been welcoming entrants and their vehicles that have been arriving early.  He was there to park a 1956 Cadillac ambulance from San Diego behind the Ripon department Thursday afternoon.

Lindsay has worked hand in hand with his brother from Menlo Park in years past to put on the best event possible for the Ripon community that is free to the public.
