These folks run the Tulsa Sobering Center, the City’s new alternative to incarceration for publicly intoxicated people. The lady next to me runs the Center and her name is Debbie. She’s a Tulsa native and loves this chance to help people turn their lives around. #918DayTulsa pic.twitter.com/MObfjOSkNl— G.T. Bynum (@gtbynum) September 18, 2018
He also spoke with several first responders.

A medical emergency run with Tulsa Fire Department Station 27. A man was having chest pains and our firefighters were on the scene promptly. Thanks to quick response times like that, Tulsa has one of the highest cardiac incident survival rates in the nation! #918DayTulsa pic.twitter.com/w3vbx1IBC3— G.T. Bynum (@gtbynum) September 18, 2018
