City of Saginaw MI -
SAGINAW ARSON WATCH ON THE LOOKOUT FOR VOLUNTEERS
The Saginaw Police and Fire Departments, and SCENIC are collaborating with the local Neighborhood Associations and preparing for another successful Arson Watch on October 30 and October 31, 2017. The Neighborhood Associations are looking for Arson Watch volunteers to work with the Police, Fire, and SCENIC departments to be the "eyes and ears" of Saginaw to help stop arson related fires.
Arson Watch teams, along with police, S.C.E.N.I.C. and fire personnel, will patrol assigned neighborhoods by car or truck from dusk until dawn to watch for suspicious activities. The patrols will focus on monitoring abandoned buildings and other areas throughout the City. Volunteers will be provided with Arson Watch T-shirts, flashing lights, and thorough training on how to patrol throughout their watch. Refreshments will also be provided for volunteers at various locations.
Commenting on the event, Arson Watch Co-Chair Nancy Burdick stated, "This is the tenth year we have implemented this event in Saginaw and it is amazing to see the positive impact this has made in the City. We could not have achieved these results without the support from our dedicated volunteers."
Citizens interested in volunteering for Arson Watch should contact their area Neighborhood Association President to register for the event. To find out more information about your Neighborhood Association, visit the City’s website www.saginaw-mi.com/residents/neighborhoodassociations or pick up a map at City Hall.
