National Night Out Block Party at Providence
A fun and educational evening is planned to raise crime prevention awareness, strenghten neighborhood spirit and unity, and foster community-law enforcement partnerships.
The National Night Out Block Party at Providence will feature exhibits, information and demonstrations from area first responders, plus vehicles and a helicopter to see, touch and explore. Participants include the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's Northwest Area Command, Northwest Area Neighborhood Watch and Air Support, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, Medic West and UNLV's Safe Community Partnership.
Festivities also will include video games through Game Truck of Las Vegas, deejay, volleyball, soccer and P.D., the Providence dog mascot. Farmers Insurance will provide free Kid ID Kits, and Planet Interactive will operate a fire truck slide and Sticky Drag Race where participants race in shoes velcroed to a special race truck. Free popsicles will be available, and the Slidin' Thru Food Truck will be selling its specialty sliders and other treats.
During the event, the new P.A.R.T. Campaign - Prevent Any Road Tragedy - will be introduced. P.A.R.T. is a local traffic safety campaign aimed at reducing the number of fatalities and injuries on community roadways and thoroughfares. Developed by the Providence Master Homeowners Association, in conjunction with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, City of Las Vegas Public Works, Focus Property Group, Capital Consultants Management Corporation and other traffic safety advocates, mobilization efforts will run from Aug. 7 through Aug. 21.
