Starting tonight, block parties will now have on scene medical support.
Erie Downtown Partnership CEO John Buchna said last week's incident has opened their eyes to a need for more emergency responders.
Emergycare will be around for the remainder of block parties to increase the feeling of safety at these events.
Tonight's block party takes place outside of Sullivan's.
It will feature live music from Money Shot and the I-90s.
