Bringing together community members and emergency responders, the Mountain Village Police Department and Village Court Apartments are hosting the eighth annual National Night Out Tuesday, August 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.
The entire community is invited to join their neighbors, police and fire department teams at the Village Court Apartments (415 Mountain Village Blvd.) for a free barbeque (hamburgers and hot dogs), ice cream social, dunk tank, bouncy castle and tours of police cars, fire trucks and an ambulance.
“Village Court Apartments (VCA) is excited to host National Night Out to honor the police, firefighters, EMS and forestry,” said VCA Property Manager Cecilia Curry. “We hope to see everyone for a night of fun.”
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 partnerships.
Mountain Village Chief of Police Chris Broady said, “This is a night for the Town of Mountain Village and our neighboring communities to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our quest for a safer community.”
National Night Out is one of many ways local police and fire departments become acquainted with our community in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
