Turn On Lights for NNO

One way to deter crime and show your support for National Night out is to leave your porch light on the night of August 7th. Porch lights that are on from dusk to dawn every night help keep neighborhoods safe. Use a compact fluorescent bulb or LED to keep energy costs low.

Security lights protect our homes. Well placed outdoor lighting can make our homes less desirable targets for criminals. Timers, motion detectors and photocells can be installed
to turn lights on and off automatically. Make sure the timer or photocell is compatible with your bulb. Interior lighting also discourages criminals from entering your home. Put one or two lamps on a timer and use efficient bulbs to save energy.

National Night Out On Tuesday August 7th
Join us in Fox Park for all age games at 6:00 pm
Come early, meet with neighbors and bring a picnic
