DTE Energy employees patrol during Angels’ Night, concentrate volunteer efforts in area encompassing Detroit’s North End
Detroit residents may see more than ghouls and goblins this Halloween weekend as more than 40 DTE Energy vehicles with flashing overhead yellow lights take to the streets as part of the city’s Angels’ Night patrols.
To increase security and keep city residents, homes and neighborhoods safe from vandalism and arson, about 80 DTE volunteers will patrol the neighborhoods and staff the Detroit’s Emergency Operations Center. DTE has participated in Detroit’s Angels’ Night campaign for more than 15 years.
The patrols build upon DTE Energy’s presence in the North End, where the company’s Caniff Service Center is located. DTE volunteers helped with smoke detector installations and fire safety education in the neighborhood in September. Next month, DTE’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Day activities will provide 125 area homes with free home energy consultations.
