National Night Out in Riverview: Free Pizza
Pictures are from last year's "We Care" gift basket deliveries because of COVID, and from the in-person event in the ballfield two years ago.
They are your friends. They are your neighbors. You see them all the time, in the grocery stores, at church, in the mall. You see them all over town and sometimes you may not even know who they are because you've never met them. They're often the silent heroes in our community. And they are also the first people you call in an emergency.
Kingsport police officers, Sullivan County sheriff's deputies, Kingsport firefighters, emergency medical technicians, life-saving crew members and representatives from Ballad Health's medical facilities will all be on hand this coming Thursday for their annual "meet and greet" session with residents. People will get the chance to meet new first responders they've never met, and greet first responders again that they may already know. "We're always delighted to attend the National Night Out event," says KPD's Public Information Officer Tom Patton. "Meeting people continues our mission of preventing crime in our neighborhoods and throughout the entire community."
