In the 1960’s, most rural areas of Kansas had no organized fire protection, and Blue Township was no different.  One night in 1966, a fire broke out in the K-Hill Engine Service shop on east Highway 24.

Camping out at Country Stampede? Pay attention to the orange letters/numbers in the roadway to help emergency crews find your location in the event of an emergency! It's a big campground, so be sure to memorize the closest one to your campsite to tell a dispatcher if you have to call 911. "The second tent away from the pink camouflage camper trailer" doesn't really help us out too much, there's always a few! Please drink lots of water this weekend! It is already very toasty out here. We wish you a safe and fun filled stampede weekend! ... See MoreSee Less
