Citizens Interact with Portland Firefighters at National Night Out Against Crime Celebrations


Portland firefighters were out in force in early August to spread good will and awareness at annual National Night Out Against Crime celebrations and block parties all over Portland.

In an effort to build community and prevent crime, the neighborhood block parties often featured food, music, crime-prevention information, police and fire demonstrations, fingerprinting, and more.


By celebrating National Night Out Against Crime, Portland citizens joined more than 36 million people from all over the country. National Night Out Against Crime is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anticrime programs,  strengthen neighborhood spirit and community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
