First responders, others converge on Hershey Medical Center campus to ‘Light Up the Night’

At least 100 vehicles representing more than 75 organizations filled the night sky with flashing lights of many different colors, all in an effort to brighten the spirits of patients and families at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State Health Children’s Hospital.

Wednesday’s “Light Up the Night” event included dozens of law enforcement, EMS and fire agencies from across central Pennsylvania, as well as several towing companies, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, Pennsylvania State Police, PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. The event was organized by a consortium of local and regional agencies.

The participants are also teaming up to provide giveaways for young patients, including flashlights and coloring books.
