This week the NKC Fire Department paramedics completed two days of training on Emergency Pediatric Care that was hosted on-site and evaluated by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) evaluators. The goal is for NKC FD to become a training site recognized by the NAEMT.

Join Parks & Recreation for tonight’s Friday Night Concert featuring Riding’ The Storm Out, a Tribute to REO Speed Wagon.  The concert starts at 7 p.m. in the Macken Park Pavilion.

Parks & Recreation invites you to celebrate the new school year! Get your snack on with hotdogs and chips, make a craft, check out NKC Fire's Ladder Truck and Ambulance, and get your Back-to-School picture taken at our photo op! Then stay to watch Raya and the Last Dragon at dusk. The first 50 kids will receive a giveaway from McConnell & Associates.
