“Light Up the Night,” which took place on Tuesday, March 21, 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 – in its second year – was organized by a consortium of local and regional agencies.

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