Sharing from National Night Out-Crawford County:
Thank you for reaching out, and for wanting to share the McGruff Safe Kit with others in your community! Specifically, our product is designed for individual households. However, we like your idea, and would like to be able to offer our kits to larger groups as well! We have forwarded your request on to our service team, and someone will be contacting you soon to discuss more options.
In the meantime, you are more than welcome to share our website and product with the families at your event, to help them receive their own McGruff Safe Kits. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to let us know.
We have had several citizens contact us about actions to be taken by residents if their homes are impacted by floods or other severe weather events. Click the link below to learn more about the recovery process. Again, our website is meant to be a source of information. Please be safe out there during this period of severe weather!http://www.adem.arkansas.gov/aem/recovery/recovery-process/
Governor Asa Hutchinson has declared a State of Emergency for Arkansas in response to the severe storms and flooding throughout the state.
Arkansas Department of Emergency Management officials are receiving all of the requests from the counties and are responding on order of the Governor.
“Our prayers go out to the families who lost loved ones in the heavy rain and storms last night. I also thank our first responders who have worked tirelessly to provide assistance,” Governor Hutchinson said. “This afternoon I declared a State of Emergency for Arkansas to ensure that we have in place available resources to assist counties affected by last night’s storms. ADEM continues to coordinate with counties on damage assessments.”

WHAT IS NATIONAL NIGHT OUT?
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Together, we are making that happen. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Additionally, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.https://natw.org/about
