Mercy Flight brought a helicopter to the event. Children were welcome to sit in the pilot’s seat and get a close up of the aircraft which is used to transport people with life-threatening injuries and illnesses.

ALBION – The Albion Police Department would like to remind everyone that National Night Out at Bullard Park is a few days away. The event will be held next Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will have more participating agencies taking part than we have ever had before.

Our mission is simple. We want an event where families can come for a night and be entertained at no cost and eat for free in an environment that is free of violence, alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Our goal is to have those that attend walk away with a positive contact that can assist with any needs a person may need. We strive to make this event a one-day event that lasts all year long.

This year’s event will include many demonstrations from law enforcement, fire and EMS along with over 50 other organizations providing entertainment and give-a-ways. Mercy Flight will be arriving at with an aircraft that everyone is welcome to tour and sit in.

We will have bikes on hand for kids to ride in an obstacle course with police officers and to receive a free bike helmet. There will also be free food and water for everyone.

We are very excited to be doing a “Battle of Belts” competition again this year to promote vehicle passenger safety. The competition entails teams of 4 who compete to see who is the fastest getting into car and fastening their seatbelts. Each contestant then must switch seats and again fasten their seat belts. The time ends when each person has sat in each seat in the car. This event is fun to participate in and even more fun to watch. There is still time to enter and details can be found on the event Facebook Page.

A Webinar was hosted by the Population Health Collaborative where Chief Nenni gave insight on what the National Night Out Event in Orleans County is all about. It can be viewed by clicking here. Come out and enjoy a night of fun.
