On August 6, 2013 the Cedar Falls Police Department will be working with the Target Retail Store 214 Viking Plaza Drive in Cedar Falls to celebrate the National Night Out Against Crime event from 4:00-7:00 pm. This marks the fourth time that Target has teamed with the department since the opening of the Cedar Falls store. The Target Corporation is a national sponsor of this event.
There will be fingerprinting available to parents for their children, numerous activities for the children including bingo and there will be children friendly handouts and giveaways along with refreshments and treats. A cookout is scheduled take place with free hot dogs and hamburgers available on site.
Weather permitting, the Covenant Hospital AirCare helicopter will be on display along with its flight crew to answer questions and allow people to get a close-up look at an airborne ambulance. There will also be a fire truck, ambulance and police vehicles and bicycles on site to visit; and a chance to talk with members of the departments that provide the services to the community. The agencies that are tentatively scheduled to be represented are, Cedar Falls Police Department, Cedar Falls Fire Rescue, Covenant Hospital, Iowa State Patrol, Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office, and AAA Travel and Insurance.
This is a great opportunity to meet and talk with emergency services personnel for children and adults alike; while learning about crime prevention and safety. We hope to set a new attendance record this year and remind everyone to drive carefully before and after the event.
