Members of the West Grove Fire Company participated in West Grove Borough's National Night Out activities on a steamy Tuesday evening this week, displaying the company's new Ladder 22 and flying a huge American flag over the proceedings.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August. Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

All of us at the WGFC are grateful for the wonderful relationship we have with the community and are proud to be a part of this local and national celebration. We are particularly proud of the strong bond and partnership we have with the local and state police in our area, and welcome the chance to highlight the importance of supporting police-community partnerships at National Night Out.
