2022 Safe Summer Nights Flyer Schedule


Tom Campion started St Paul Summer Nights as he saw that it was important to have citizens who have a good relationship to the First Responders (Police & Fire Departments) in their city.

At a Safe Summer Night expect:

The SPPD and other First Responders have kid activities (climbing wall, bounce house, face painting) demonstrations by the Mounted Patrol, and sometimes the K-9 Unit, and what to do if there is a kitchen fire.  They will bring out the Bearcat “SWAT” vehicle.

There are free burgers, hot dogs, chips, healthy snacks, and beverages.

2021 Safe Summer Nights Are Back in St Paul!

Safe Summer Nights are back for 2021. Last year due to the Pandemic the practice of getting a free hotdog, bratwurst, and or a burger, chips, a healthy snack and a beverage was canceled.  Meeting your neighborhood Police Officers, Fire Fighters, EMTs and other First Responders through displays, activities such as climbing walls, K-9 demonstrations was sorely missed.

Safe Summer Nights was first started by Tom Campion, a citizen who thought kids and neighborhood people need to meet the professionals who serve them in the Police, Fire Fighters, and First Responders. It’s a chance to meet people you didn’t know lived in your neighborhood.

Here is the schedule for this Summer:

So unlike in previous years where every Thursday was a Safe Summer Night event, it appears two Thursdays each month from June thru August will be Safe Summer Nights.

See You There!

Help Save Lives Dig Out St Paul Fire Hydrants

We never get tired of this video below.  Okay it is a little bit corny but the message of cleaning off the nearest fire hydrant to your house is an important one.  Time is of the essence when the nearest Ladder Company of the St Paul’s Bravest show up to put out a fire.  Let us say that again, Time is very important to saving lives in a fire.  If a firefighter has to waste time digging a hydrant out of a snow bank, your loved one, or your pets, or your neighbors, and their pets could die.

You can take turns with your neighbor over who gets to do the honor of Digging out the Hydrant.
