Oklahoma City, Thursday, November 9, 2017 – The Oklahoma City Thunder today announced it has partnered with Enable Midstream Partners to recognize nominated emergency responders from Oklahoma and the surrounding area once a month at Thunder home games with an on-court presentation.  

Beginning in November, a nominated emergency responder who exhibits the traits of safety, integrity, accountability, customer service and teamwork will be selected for the Enable Midstream Safety Partner Award. This award is designed to honor first responders who exemplify the Enable Midstream values while protecting and partnering with their local community.

The chosen recipient will also earn recognition at a community event as well as a monetary donation to their organization from Enable Midstream.

“Being able to partner with Enable Midstream to recognize emergency responders is a huge honor,” said Christine Berney, vice president of Thunder Community Relations. “These everyday heroes make a tremendous impact in our community and we’re fortunate to have a platform to bring attention to their accomplishments.”
