The Dalton Police Department will host a Community Night Out public safety fair on Monday, April 30th at the new Mack Gaston Community Center at 218 Fredrick Street. The event will take place from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm and will feature fun for the whole family.
This is the fifth year that the department has hosted a community night out fair. In previous years, the event coincided with the National Night Out in August, but this year the event has been moved to spring to avoid the late summer heat. The department also plans to host a second Community Night Out event in the fall.
The event is free to the public and will feature inflatable play sets and lots of free goodies for the kids. Kids will also get a chance to get up close looks at police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, the 911 mobile command unit and other public safety equipment used by participating agencies. There will also be plenty of crime prevention, traffic safety and fire safety information on hand for your family’s information. There will also be free home fingerprint kits for kids sponsored by Allstate and free gun locks.
This is a great opportunity to meet some of the law enforcement, fire, and emergency services personnel who serve your community. Officers from the Dalton Police Department, Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office and Georgia State Patrol will be on hand along with firefighters from the Dalton and Whitfield County Fire Departments, and personnel from Whitfield County Emergency Services, EMS, and the CERT team will be on hand to meet and greet members of the community. Other agencies may also take part.
So make your plans to join us on Monday, April 30th!
