National Night Out In Oak Harbor
August 6, 2019, 4 – 7 pm
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. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.
Representatives from “Safer Homes, Suicide Aware” will be at the event informing guests how to make their home safer and prevent a suicide long before a crisis occurs.
Medication locking devices as well as firearm locking devices will be distributed for free.
“Safer Homes” signifies a home in which lethal means are unavailable to a suicidal individual. “Suicide Aware” signifies the universal need to educate people about suicide prevention and action steps everyone can take today.
Putting a practical barrier between a suicidal person and the means they plan to use to end their life can interrupt their path to suicide.
