Members from the Burbank Police Department’s Mental Health Evaluation Team were on hand to answer questions as were dispatchers from the Police Department and Verdugo Fire Dispatch.

Throughout Burbank, approximately 20 neighborhood block parties were held, some serving potluck dinners, while others had food trucks, ice cream vendors, face painters, a chili cook off and a pie-tasting contest.
