MISSOURI CITY (Covering Fort Bend News) – Missouri City once again will participate in National Night Out celebrations on Tuesday, Oct. 1, with residents, elected officials, first responders and stakeholders partnering to promote safe streets.
The city’s proactive public safety initiatives will be a central theme citywide as neighborhoods host block parties to showcase their support of local firefighters and police officers.
The annual Pre-National Night Out “Kick Off” block party will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the new Missouri City Police Mini-Station in the Wells Fargo Bank building, 2440 Texas Pkwy., starting at 4 p.m.
Members of the Fire & Rescue Services and the Police Department will be at the kick-off event to greet participants and hand out crime-prevention materials. Police vehicles, the city-branded community engagement fire truck and other public safety equipment will be on display.
Then, on Tuesday, Oct. 1, cities statewide will officially observe National Night Out. Citizens can check neighborhood block party locations/times with their homeowners’ associations.
