Night to Unite and Block Parties
Block parties and other neighborhood celebrations are a great way to meet new neighbors, build neighborhood relationships and establish stronger connections. Public Safety would enjoy visiting your block party, neighborhood celebration or the like!
At this time, only police officers and squads might be able to attend these celebrations. Due to staffing capacity, our EMS Fire team are unable to visit block parties, neighborhood celebration or similar gatherings.
