Emergency Tips

  1. Lightning

    Lightning is the second most common cause of weather-related deaths in Texas, following only flooding.

  2. Outdoor Safety / Heat Related Illnesses

    Summer is here once again, and as the days begin to get hotter and drier, the chance for fires and heat related injuries and illnesses increase.

  3. Preparing for a Winter Storm

    Cold snaps and heat waves can be as challenging and as deadly as any other natural disaster.

  4. Shelter-in-Place

    During the unlikely event of a chemical emergency or other emergency, the best way to protect you and your family may be to Shelter-in-Place.

  5. Tornadoes

    A tornado is a "violently rotating column of air in contact with the ground." It is a center of very low pressure surrounding by high winds, usually rotating counterclockwise.
