Camano Fire to host its first National Night Out event Aug. 2

National Night Out is coming to Camano Island this August thanks to Camano Island Fire & Rescue, the Mabana Flames, the Camano Preparedness Group, and the Camano Island Chamber of Commerce.

Community members are invited to the Vista/Madrona and Mabana stations from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2.

“National Night Out is a chance for our community to meet their first responders and get to know their neighbors,” Chief Levon Yengoyan said. “We think it’s important to bring our community together here on the island, and what better way to do that than hosting National Night Out at our fire stations.”

Each station will offer free hot dogs, fun kids’ activities, and a chance to see fire engines and ambulances. The Island County Sheriff’s Office will have a deputy and patrol car at both fire stations; Washington State Parks will have a ranger and ranger vehicle at each station as well.

The first 25 children who visit the Vista and Mabana stations will also receive a free bicycle helmet courtesy of Safe Kids Snohomish County.

The Vista fire station is located at 273 N West Camano Drive. The Mabana fire station is located at 3651 South Camano Drive.

Camano Fire plans to host National Night Out on the island each August.

National Night Out began in 1984 as an annual community-building campaign that promotes strong community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Find more information about National Night Out at
