National Night Out - Picnic in the Park is an annual event sponsored by the Broomfield Police Department Neighborhood Watch program. "Neighborhood Watch. . .It's Not Just Crime Prevention Anymore!" It's about "Creating a Community Network to Provide a Safer Place to Live!"
Broomfield joins other communities across the nation to celebrate this all-hazard safety event at the Broomfield County Commons Park. There are interactive learning stations, all-hazard preparedness education centers, a demonstration by North Metro Fire Rescue showing extrication from a crashed car, a police K-9 demonstration, and an interactive SWAT display. In addition to the traditional police and fire vehicles, touch-a-truck includes big city trucks that take care of Broomfield's streets and kids can climb inside to see what they are all about! Snacks, drawings, and prizes are part of the festivities.
In the spirit of community support and helping our neighbors, we encourage you to help stock our local food pantry by donating non-perishable food items to FISH, Inc. of Broomfield during this event.
Bring a picnic supper for your family and join us on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the County Commons Park.
