Police, firefighters and ambulance personnel in the Norwin area — Irwin, North Huntingdon and North Irwin — will join forces for National Night Out from 7 to 9 p.m. Aug. 6 at Excela Square at Norwin, Route 30, North Huntingdon.

Fire trucks from all seven of North Huntingdon’s volunteer fire departments, as well as the Irwin and North Irwin fire departments will participate, in addition to the Irwin and North Huntingdon police departments and Irwin and North Huntingdon’s ambulance services, according to North Huntingdon Police Chief Robert Rizzo.

National Night Out is an annual effort on the first Tuesday in August to enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement, while bringing back a true sense of community, according to the National Night Out website. It provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

“This is the first Norwin community event for National Night Out,” said Shari Martino, Irwin Borough acting manager who has worked with Rizzo in organizing the event.

A police K-9 demonstration is planned for 8 p.m., Rizzo said.

North Huntingdon police will be available to fingerprint children for identification purposes, Rizzo said.

North Huntingdon EMS/Rescue will bring their rescue boats and other specialized equipment for the public to see, Martino said.

Youngsters will get to see the fire trucks and other emergency equipment, Martino said.

“We think it is going to be educational,” she added.

Excela Health, which has its Excela Square at Norwin medical facility, also will participate, the chief said.

The Norwin-area event is one of many happening throughout the region.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
