Oceanside CA— MainStreet Oceanside will once again host its annual Public Safety Night on Thursday February 1, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Oceanside Police Department, Oceanside Lifeguards, and the Oceanside Fire Department will participate with displays and giveways.
This family friendly event will feature 15-plus vehicle displays by the Oceanside Police Department, Fire Department and Lifeguards, plus a special return appearance by Rescue 5 of the Remembrance Rescue Project from 9/11.
Back for the second year, the Remembrance Rescue Project is a nonprofit created by firefighters to restore the fire trucks of the elite Rescue Co. 4 and Rescue Co. 5 of the NYFD from 9/11. By preserving Rescues 4 and 5 as rolling educational platforms, historical artifacts and memorials, the project has worked with fire departments across the country to teach children the historical importance of 9/11 while keeping the memories of the firefighters who were lost that day alive.
Throughout Public Safety Night, Oceanside police officers, firefighters and lifeguards will be handing out items such as coloring books, stickers and hats, as well as sharing public safety information and opportunities to become part of our city’s safety team, including:
- OPD volunteer programs
- Oceanside Community Emergency Response Team
- Surf, swim, and boating safety
