JFES HUMANITARIAN’S HOOK AWARD (Posted 8 14 2020) During the Officer’s Meeting held yesterday at the Center for Public Safety, a new award was established as a friendly competition between the four JFES Fire Stations.

The Humanitarian’s Hook Award is presented to the fire station that performs above and beyond in participation in civic fundraisers that are approved by the department.
Participation in these events and fundraisers take place on the member’s own time and at no expense to the department.

The concept for the new award came after JFES participation in a food drive benefiting the Onslow County United Way’s CHEW (Children Healthy Eating on Weekends) Program. The CHEW Program assists children in our community by providing backpacks filled with child-friendly, easy to prepare meals over the weekend. JFES Members donated food items to be used in the program.

Fire Station 4, under the supervision at the time of Captains, Booher, Williams and Davis, collected a truckload of food for families in need. Station 4 has the honor of being the first recipients of the Humanitarian’s Hook Award. The award will travel (or stay) to other stations as JFES personnel participate in other public service events.
Congratulations Station 4!

NNO 2020 Changes
Traditional Event changes to Small Scale and Virtual Activities (Posted 8 13 2020)

Because of limitations for mass gatherings in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, City leadership and the the planners of Jacksonville’s National Night will not hold National Night Out 2020 in the traditional manner. Instead of a one- evening large scale event on Tuesday, October 6th, a series of smaller gatherings and virtual events will take place the week of October 5 through October 9, 2020 as National Night Out Week 2020.

As National Night Out 2020 Week takes place at the same time as National Fire Prevention Week, a combination of police and fire community partnership activities will take place.

The National Night Out is a unique opportunity to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts. National Night Out strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. It sends a message that our community is organized and ready to fight back against criminal activity. As in past years, these events will promote cooperation between law enforcement and the community to fight crime. Our one-night event last year attracted more than 10,000 attendees last year.

“Although we are unable to celebrate in the same way we do each year at National Night Out, a week of smaller and virtual activities will allow us to build on the foundation our community enjoys with police-community partnerships,” said Chief Mike Yaniero, Director of Public Safety.

Details will be released soon regarding National Night Out Week 2020 activities, including the very popular Running with the Law 5K, which will be a virtual race this year. Check back with us here on Facebook and on the City’s webpage: www.jacksonvillenc.gov
