Frackville 's First Responders and Local Non-Profits Come Together for National Night Out

A vibrant community event took place at Frackville's Memorial Park and Pool, drawing families and residents together for an evening of excitement and exploration. 

The event, organized by the Frackville Borough Police, provided an opportunity for citizens to engage with first responders and learn about their essential services.

The centerpiece of the event was the open invitation for attendees to enjoy an evening of free swimming at Memorial Park and Pool. 

The event took an educational and interactive turn as first responders proudly showcased their equipment to curious attendees. Frackville's Police Department featured a patrol vehicle that captured the interest of both children and adults. Chief Paul Olsen and Patrolman Joseph Murton also unveiled the new patch that they will wear on their uniforms.

In a display of unity and preparedness, the fire companies of Goodwill, Englewood, and Altamont came together to exhibit their apparatus. The Friendship Fire Company handed out free fire extinguishers and the Good Will Fire Company allowed children to hold a fire hose.

Local non-profit organizations also joined in the festivities. The Rotary and Elks, representing the borough's strong spirit of community service, actively participated in making the event a memorable one for all attendees.
