Hi, My name is Kevin Greig. I was the Santa Clara County Deputy Sheriff working in the Santa Cruz Mountains  that started the very first Night-Out event. At the time I presented the idea to several groups in the Santa Cruz Mountains, I told them I truly believed in the program as a way to bring neighbors together for their own safety in the event of another major disaster in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Since retiring from the Sheriff’s Office I have moved out of state, I was surfing the net and found the event is still going on and Ralph Ditillo, who was a great asset for me is still doing the dinners. I have to say, I am gratified the event is still going on and I still believe it will be one of the biggest assets for keeping the community together and saving lives in the event of another major disaster in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Thank You for keeping this event going.

Sincerely

Kevin Greig, Retired Santa Clara County Sheriff’s deputy
