The Fillmore Police and Fire Departments proudly announce the first “Coffee with the Badges” event.
On Tuesday, May 10th, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, Fillmore deputies and firefighters, along with their respective chief’s will be at La Michoacana Bakery, located at 511 Sespe Avenue in the city of Fillmore, sharing a cup of coffee with our neighbors. Community trust is one of the key elements to the success of the Fillmore Police and Fire Departments. By sitting down and having a simple conversation with members of the community we serve, we can develop and build meaningful relationships.
The “Badges” invite the community to come out and ask questions, voice concerns, obtain crime and fire prevention advice, and get to know the “Badges” in your neighborhood. This is a relaxed, informal event and is not about speeches or agendas but simply about casual conversation. The goal of “Coffee with the Badges” is to get to know the community better and hear about issues that our residents feel are important.
May, is “Mental Health Awareness Month.” As First Responders, we have come together to promote awareness of the mental health issues. At this “Coffee with the Badges” event, we are proud to have representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to help promote the upcoming “Health & Wellness Resource Fair” which will be held on May 14th from 11:00 am ~ 2:00 pm located at the Fillmore School District Administration Building, 627 Sespe Avenue in the city of Fillmore.
