After over 32 years with the Arlington Fire Department, Captain Warren Muncy will be retiring today. When they say that someone is the kind of guy who has "never met a stranger," this is who they are referencing. Captain Muncy has remained kind and engaging, making a lasting impact on firefighters and citizens throughout his decades of service. We wish him the best and appreciate his contributions.

Members of our TIFMAS team remain in California, working at controlling the August Complex Fire. They deliberately set fires to burn out areas up to dozer lines. This coordinated act creates a controlled burn which limits available fuel for the main fire. Our team is doing well and we wish them the best.

Firefighters on our TIFMAS team completed their second 24 hour operational period yesterday evening. They are continuing to patrol an 8 mile stretch, which they are assigned. Their duties continue to be saw work, mop-up, and patrolling for hotspots.

They are in a position to help with not just fire control and suppression. Their most recent public assistance came in the form of helping ranchers. Livestock had been left behind, and our firefighters assisted by filling up troughs, making water available.

As of yesterday, the Arlington Fire Department deployed 8 firefighters to California to assist with combatting the wildfires. Authorites recently reported that over 3.5 million acres have sustained damage from burns, and the threat continues.

Resources from Arlington, Fort Worth, and Flower Mound have been combined and will be utilized as a strike team. We are anticipating a deployment of 14-22 days. The team arrived in New Mexico last night, and they are heading west today. Please keep those serving in your thoughts and prayers.

09/01/2020

The first of multiple storm systems will move through our region today. The rain that is ongoing across parts of North Texas this morning will likely continue for much of the day, and we expect an increase in coverage of showers and storms this afternoon and evening. In addition, more thunderstorms may move into the region from the west this evening. All of this activity will gradually move to the east or southeast through tonight.

From late afternoon through evening, some of these thunderstorms will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 MPH. Small hail will also be possible. The greatest concern however will be the heavy rainfall potential. Widespread rainfall accumulations of four to six inches can be expected for areas near and north of Interstate 20 for the period from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Locally higher amounts will be possible. These heavy rains could lead to flash flooding in urban areas, and in areas near creeks, rivers, and streams. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for parts of North Texas. To the south in Central Texas, locally heavy rainfall will still be possible, but widespread accumulations will be less, remaining around two to four inches. Central Texas has also had less rainfall recently, which will keep the flood threat lower.
