CenterPoint Energy celebrates National Night Out
Premier Ridgeland event draws media attention

Community-minded CenterPoint Energy (CNP) employees took time to meet neighbors and share safety tips in communities across CenterPoint Energy’s service areas during National Night Out on Aug. 5. This national event promotes safety and strengthens neighborhood spirit as well as police-community partnerships. 

The company hosted its first National Night Out event in Ridgeland, Mississippi, resulting in television coverage touting that ‘National Night Out isn’t just for residents.’ Tina Lakey, CNP district manager, said, "It was the first time for a business to do this, and the city was extremely supportive.” Ridgeland Mayor, Gene McGee, and his wife, attended the event.
