Activities at the Tomah event included the Child Passenger Safe Program, a smokehouse and a bicycle safety course.

The Fort McCoy Directorate of Emergency Services Police and Fire Departments supported the Child Passenger Safe Program and a smokehouse.

The Child Passenger Safe Program is a collaborative program among police agencies, hospitals and private agencies. The program educates the public how to ensure children from the ages of birth to 5 years old are properly secured in a car seat or booster.

The Fire Department created a smokehouse for children to teach them how to safely escape from a burning home. A bicycle safety course for children taught them how to properly wear safety gear while bike riding.

National Night Out was celebrated throughout the country.
