National Night Out at Hicks Park
The 31st National Night Out, celebrated across the nation, will be held at Hicks Park this year in Tulsa. The national movement is way for the community to gather in an area and discuss crime and other issues. The police and fire departments, EMSA, and other first responders will be there to chat with people as well.
Program Coordinator, Bart Dean, says there will also be non-profit organizations there to talk with the community.
"We have several people who have information for the public to use in order to be able to make their lives better, and improve what's going on with them. And it's all a big appreciation day for everybody, to let everybody know, let the police department and all the fire department know, that we appreciate them."
Dean says this national movement is happening all over the states.
"Different cities do it differently. Different neighborhoods do it differently. But, it's all the same thing. It's law enforcement, fire, first responder appreciation."
The National Night Out event will be held at Hicks Park, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., August 5th.
