On-base and off-base organizations are generously donating their time to provide demonstrations, safety tips, refreshments and more. Participants typically include the 355th Security Forces, D-M Fire Department, the 48th Rescue Squadron, Border Patrol, Tucson SWAT, New York Life – Child I.D. and many other organizations.

D-M’s National Night Out event, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored by Soaring Heights Communities, will be held Oct. 2, from 3-6 p.m. at Ironwood Park, located next to the Welcome Home Center.
