In the Service of the Citizenry Together, their combined experience adds up to a whopping half-century of service to the residents of Lansing.

However, Lt. Hung Tran, the longest serving officer on the Lansing Police Department, and Capt. Brenda Brassington, the longest serving member of the Lansing Fire Department, came to their respective careers in different ways. Each has 25 years of work behind them, yet for Tran it was a lifelong dream of working in law enforcement that led him to his decadesspanning job, where he’s continually moved up through the ranks. The police department recruited him and sponsored him as he went through the police academy. “I love this city. Lansing is my hometown. I have family here. I have friends here. All of my colleagues are here,” he said.

For Brassington, it was a significant incident in her life that brought her to the fire department. When her sister’s Williamstonarea home was broken into, the responding officer was also a paramedic. As he took his report and talked about his work, it troubled Brassington that she didn’t have the skills required to react in an emergency situation. She kept relating each scenario to her own family, asking herself, “What would I do?”

simply offering aid, assistance and comfort to those in need.

“I kept thinking about coming upon an accident or something like that and not knowing what to do. That was horrifying to me,” she said.

“Every day, for 25 years, I’ve faced with so many different things. You never really know what it will be,” she said. “It’s really what you train for. It’s what we live for. I’ve basically learned to go one day at a time.”

What she decided to do was act; training first to become an EMT then taking more advanced training to be a paramedic before going through the fire academy and signing on with the Lansing Fire Department. Both Tran and Brassington said the most rewarding aspect of their jobs boils down to

“I just want to help people,” Tran said. “That’s the whole purpose behind what I do.” Brassington noted that even after 25 years, there are still difficult days on the job – hard calls that the department responds to, incidents where there isn’t a happy ending.

But even on the difficult days, Tran and Brassington said they know their colleagues are there as an extended family to help see them through. “We always pull it together, no matter what,” Tran said.

Like a Good Neighbor, You are First Up Where would the capital area’s neighborhoods be without the neighbors that fill their ranks? Turn to your left or your right – friend or stranger, nonprofit or for profit, the city of Lansing is known for the strength of its relationships and how residents come together to help each other out. But there’s more to the title of “neighbor” than a residential address or P.O. box. The beauty of our community is truly found in the everyday relationships we build. If you’re wondering how you can step up to the neighborly plate, these tips are for you.

• Parking: remember to leave cars

and trucks on fully paved surfaces. Recreational vehicles such as boats should be parked in a garage or authorized storage facility. • Property Upkeep: generally, you are responsible for the care of your property, so give that lawn or other greenery the occasional cut (or that snow a shovel). If you’re renting, please consult with your leasing office on the difference between your responsibilities and theirs. • Property Upgrades: The City Planning Department is always just a phone call away at (517) 483-4066. Double check if new that fence needs a clearance or other help!

• Waste Removal: Do not use tarps to cover

unsightly debris. Clean up trash, use cityapproved trash bins and tag larger waste items in front of property for removal. Don’t forget to recycle! You can find waste removal pickup times in Lansing Living • Animal Control: If you see or hear a potentially dangerous or otherwise unsafe animal, call (517) 676-6370 to alert Animal Control. • Keeping Noise Reasonable: Quiet hours are typically 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., with child and teenage curfews within the same timeframe. If discussing with your neighbor first does not seem to bear fruit, please call the Police Department (517) 483-4800 to help settle noise complaints. • What’s That Smell: Excessive odors or fumes must be registered with the Code Compliance Office at (517) 483-4861.

LANSING NEIGHBORHOODS

MAKE AN IMPACT Finding the ideal place to call home is so much more than seeking out four walls and a roof. It’s about finding neighbors, a lifestyle, and community that best fits you and your family’s needs. A survey conducted by Trulia, in partnership with Harris Interactive, found that home shoppers are looking for more than just a house: Nearly 84 percent of survey participants said the neighborhood would be equally or more important than the home being purchased. Neighbors are what make up a community and bring together what is known as a neighborhood association. Neighborhood associations are made up of neighbors looking to get involved, take responsibility and make an impact. These groups of neighbors come together from across the city to coordinate efforts to advocate, socialize and problem solve. These groups ultimately aim to improve the overall quality of life in their neighborhood.

“Neighborhood associations are a way for people to support one another and come together,” said the Lansing Department of Neighborhoods and Citizen Engagement’s Director Andi Crawford. “There’s real value in connected neighbors.” Associations are taking initiatives to get Lansing residents involved in or to create an active neighborhood association. The city hosts Housing and Neighborhood Resource Summits offered quarterly that offer the opportunity for neighbors to meet the City of Lansing officials and partners to discuss developments, parks, road projects and resources for residents like making your home safer. In the fall of 2018, Serve, a citywide service plan will launch to encourage civic engagement and services across the city. Sign up for the Lansing Neighborhood News, a weekly neighborhood update or attend one of your neighborhood roundtable meetings to get more involved in your neighborhood.

Getting involved in your neighborhood is as simple as being a good neighbor, volunteering your time to beautify the neighborhood and taking responsibility. “All efforts make a big impact,” said Crawford. Resources like the neighborhood website, weekly newsletter, new citizens guide and neighborhood resources handbook are available to learn more about getting involved in your neighborhood. If looking to get involved in your neighborhood, attend a meeting, join a group, association or advocacy organization. If interested in starting an active organization, the city will come out to help you with association things like getting events promoted online and much more. Visit neighborhoods.lansingmi.gov/formcenter/ civic-organizations-5/2018-civic-organizationregistration-for-44 to register your association today.
