National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and safety personnel (fire and police), as well as, enhances a true sense of community. It provides an opportunity to bring police, firefighters and neighbors together. Celebrated nationally on August 2nd, 2016, Tulsa has decided to establish our Night Out on a (fingers crossed) much cooler night, Tuesday, September 13, 2016 from 6:30PM – 8:30PM.
The night is sponsored by Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa Fire Department, Tulsa City Council, and Tulsa Crime Stoppers. The idea is to have neighbors turn their porch lights on and grab a lawn chair to connect with one another. Depending on call loads our Tulsa Police and Tulsa Fire Departments would like to stop by to visit as many registered neighborhoods as possible to say hello!
Sample Activities to help in planning a successful night out:
• Grab a lawn chair and talk with neighbors
• Bring out a laptop and support neighbors in signing up for Smart911 – https://www.tulsapolice.org/content/smart911.aspx
• Block Party

• Jump Rope/Hula Hoop Contest
• Street Dance
• Scavenger Hunt
• Clean up streets or parks
• Group craft Honor Police & Fire Workers
• Take cookies or treats to local station
• Create thank you cards for Police & Fire Workers
