National Night Out – Safety Parade

What is National Night Out?

National Night Out focuses on community and raising awareness through camaraderie. By improving area relationships, the hope is to make our neighborhoods safer. Shining a spotlight on community police programs, National Night Out increases connections between those who serve and their neighborhoods.

You might remember the event we held in 2019 the Birch Bay Beach Park field. This family friendly event featured fire trucks from North Whatcom Fire & Rescue, BP, Phillips 66, police vehicles from Whatcom County Sheriff & Blaine Police Department, as well as a variety of vehicles from Search & Rescue and Boarder Patrol.

In 2020 to help control the spread of COVID-19 we took some of these vehicles on a safe, socially distanced parade through the neighborhoods in Birch Bay. It was a great night to BBQ on your front porch wave to your neighbors & watch the parade come through your neighborhood with lights flashing and sirens blaring!

In 2021 we are looking to bringing a combination of these two events to Birch Bay for you to enjoy.
