National Night Out

Words by Bill Kight / Community, Emergency Preparedness

Bringing together community members and emergency responders, the Mountain Village Police Department is hosting their seventh annual National Night Out Tuesday, August 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. The community is invited to join their neighbors, police, fire, and EMS teams at Mountain Village’s Meadows Parking Lot located at Adams Ranch Rd for free ice cream, BBQ, swag, games, and tours of police cars, fire trucks and an ambulance. Food will be provided by Shake N Dog Grub Shack and Telluride Fire.

National Night Out, a part of the National Association of Town Watch, involves over 38 million people in 16,000-plus communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. This well-known and celebrated annual event was designed to heighten community awareness of safety and fire prevention issues, as well as to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnership.

National Night Out is one of many ways local police and fire departments become acquainted with our community in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Come to celebrate this national event referred to as America’s Night Out Against Crime.

“National Night Out provides a great opportunity for our residents to get out and meet the first responders that serve them in the community. It allows our first responders and our neighbors the chance to build a safer community through open communication and community engagement in a fun, relaxed, and inclusive environment, “ said Mountain Village Police Chief Chris Broady.
