Meeting First Responders at National Night Out

San Marino residents recently joined first responders in a local observance of National Night Out, an annual campaign that seeks to strengthen partnerships between communities and law enforcement throughout the U.S. The campaign also is aimed at increasing neighborhood camaraderie, and local folk seemed to be doing just that as they greeted San Marino police officers and firefighters at the free, family-friendly gathering near City Hall. Participants had the opportunity to get an up-close look at fire engines, and train rides, a dunk tank and food also were sources of enjoyment.
