2014 Seattle Night Out stood out!
On Tuesday, August 5, Fauntleroy was home to quite a few Seattle Night Out Against Crime block parties. Night Out is an annual event that celebrates community. See photos and other information on the FCA Seattle Night Out webpage and the SPD Night Out webpage.
By the way, if you missed Night Out, you can schedule a block party anyway, anytime, in your home or garden. To schedule a speaker on neighborhood safety, contact Mark Solomon, the community crime prevention coordinator for SW Seattle, at 206-386-9766 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To schedule a speaker on neighborhood emergency preparedness, contact the Seattle Office of Emergency Management at 206-233-5076 or SNAP@seattle.gov.
Both Block Watch in Seattle and Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare (SNAP) program provides online materials to help you plan your gathering. See the Emergency Preparedness webpage on this site for West Seattle contacts.
