Friday Greetings,

The City Council has appointed Major Kevin Freeman as the incoming Chief of Police effective January 11, 2020. Congratulations Kevin!  

The North Kansas City Fire Department is proud to have a robust car seat program. This week, we received a thank you note and proof our car seat program makes a difference. On November 21, one of the families we installed car seats for was involved in a serious accident. Three small children were in the car and we were told the car seats saved their lives.  Our crews installed all three car seats on September 30.  

On Thursday, December 5, the North Kansas City Fire Department hosted a hands-on elevator procedure class funded by the Missouri Division of Fire Safety. The course was presented by O’Byrne Fireground Training, Inc. and covered guidance for emergency personnel, the anatomy of different elevators, emergency recall phase I & II, an overview of tools and equipment, lock-out/tag-out procedures, and systematic rescue plan. The class hosted twenty-three attendees from NKC Fire and neighboring fire departments.

The City received official notification that North Kansas City has been designated as a Silver Level Community For All Ages.  The City will be presented with a recognition award at the next First Suburbs Coalition Meeting on January 17, 2020.

The Candy Cane 5K will take place on Saturday, December 7.  The race begins at 5:30 p.m. and features a different course this year, staying south of Armour Road.  For more information, visit https://bodiesracecompany.com/kansascity/bodies-events/holiday-series/candy-cane-course-north/
