National Night Out
Program Information
Host a Block Party on National Night Out
  • Tuesday, August 5, 2014   
  • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Overview
This year, National Night Out is on August 5, 2014. National Night Out is always the first Tuesday in August. It is an annual nationwide event designed to strengthen neighborhood spirit and unity, raise crime prevention awareness, and develop partnerships between the city and the community-on a street, block and city-wide level. This year, the city-wide celebration will include Neighborhood Crime Watch groups, CERT members, homeowners associations, and other neighborhood groups interested in celebrating and strengthening their neighborhood connections.

Hosting a National Night Out party is a simple way for people to meet one another, have fun, and explore how they might work together to improve the safety and quality of their neighborhood. The City of Fremont encourages neighborhoods to organize a block party, barbecue, ice cream social or similar gathering.

Block Party Permit
If you plan to block off your street for your celebration, you will need to get a block party permit from the City of Fremont by calling Jackie Hall at (510) 494-4487. The deadline to file for a permit is Friday, July 7, 2014. The cost of the permit is $20.

Request a Visit from the Fire Department
As many of you are aware, the Fremont Police Department, along with many other law enforcement agencies around the country, has been faced with budgetary constraints. It is with great regret that we have to inform all of our participants that we will not be able to guarantee a visit to every party. To request a visit from the Fire Department, call Pam Franklin at (510) 494-4299 or send her an email. Requests for a visit from the Fire Department will be accepted when registration opens on June 9, 2014.
