The public is invited to celebrate police, firefighters and EMS responders at National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at Hyatt Elementary in Linden.
First responders from Linden, Fenton, Argentine Township and Fenton Township will be honored.
“The purpose of the event is to show our appreciation for the policemen, firefighters, and EMS drivers for the four different municipalities,” said organizer Beverly Vondra, treasurer for the city of Linden.
The event starts at 6 p.m. with a flag raising ceremony, the national anthem and a small presentation for the first responders. At around 7:15 p.m., Vondra said they will spray water on the kids with the fire hoses, weather permitting.
It’s a free event, and attendees can get free food, such as hot dogs, chips, water and cookies. Kids will be able to play games, see inside the fire trucks, police vehicles and EMS vehicles, as well as play in bounce houses and the Oakland County smoke house.
This is the third year for the event.
