National Night Out – Orange County BFF Style

August 5, 2014 was America’s NIGHT OUT Against Crime, and your Best Foot Forward team participated in five local National Night Out events, promoting safe communities across Orange County. In addition, Best Foot Forward flyers and stickers were distributed by neighborhood watch organizers to communities and neighborhoods all over Orange County for 140 National Night Out events.

At Avalon Park’s event, BFF partnered with the Florida Department of Transportation and their WalkWise team in Tampa and talked about improving pedestrian safety and reminded kids to look “left, right, left” before crossing the street.  The FDOT team fitted over 100 kids with bicycle helmets. 

At the Sedano’s on Curry Ford Road, a crowd of 200 enjoyed receiving BFF’s trademark bumper stickers and burgers and hot dogs grilled by members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.  Law enforcement and other crime prevention specialists reinforced the safety message with an interactive Q & A for Audubon Park’s National Night Out.
