Do not and we repeat, DO NOT, leave a child or pet in your car.
This weekend will be one of the hottest we have seen and even a minute or two in a hot car could be very problematic for this population.

ACT: use these tips to reduce the chances of child deaths in hot cars. It is summer, so let's all be extra vigilant.
• A: Avoid heatstroke related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. And make sure to keep your car locked when you’re not in it so kids don’t get in on their own.
• C: Create reminders by putting something in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially
important if you’re not following your normal routine.
• T: Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations. One call could save a life.

Y'all hot doesn't even describe what we are going to experience this weekend! 🥵🥵🥵

You can take a number of precautions to prevent heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses. When temperatures climb, remember to:

Wear loosefitting, lightweight clothing. Wearing excess clothing or clothing that fits tightly won't allow your body to cool properly.

Protect against sunburn. Sunburn affects your body's ability to cool itself, so protect yourself outdoors with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours — or more often if you're swimming or sweating.

Drink plenty of fluids. Staying hydrated will help your body sweat and maintain a normal body temperature.
Take extra precautions with certain medications. Be on the lookout for heat-related problems if you take medications that can affect your body's ability to stay hydrated and dissipate heat.

Never leave anyone in a parked car. This is a common cause of heat-related deaths in children. When parked in the sun, the temperature in your car can rise 20 degrees Fahrenheit (more than 6.7 C) in 10 minutes.

It's not safe to leave a person in a parked car in warm or hot weather, even if the windows are cracked or the car is in shade. When your car is parked, keep it locked to prevent a child from getting inside.

Take it easy during the hottest parts of the day. If you can't avoid strenuous activity in hot weather, drink fluids and rest frequently in a cool spot. Try to schedule exercise or physical labor for cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or evening.

Get acclimated. Limit time spent working or exercising in heat until you're conditioned to it. People who are not used to hot weather are especially susceptible to heat-related illness. It can take several weeks for your body to adjust to hot weather.

Be cautious if you're at increased risk. If you take medications or have a condition that increases your risk of heat-related problems, such as a history of previous heat illness, avoid the heat and act quickly if you notice symptoms of overheating. If you participate in a strenuous sporting event or activity in hot weather, make sure there are medical services available in case of a heat emergency.

We are honored to be working with so many great community partners as we adapt and fight the coronavirus public health crisis.

A partnership was formed between Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South, State Senator Beverly Powell, Ken Shetter, City of Burleson, Texas Government, Fort Worth Fire Department to provide COVID-19 testing to our community and surrounding areas. This partnership allows community members to receive tests locally and to be notified of results much quicker.

With the 4th of July being one of the busiest beach, lake, and pool weekends of the year it's important to practice water safety at all times while enjoying your holiday. This year, we've also included a few COVID-19-related safety tips to keep in mind.

If you're staying in this year, kiddie or inflatable pools can be a great way to have fun at home. Drain the water from the pool and flip it over after swim time is over. We want to wish everyone a very fun and safe 4th of July holiday! #BeSafeBurleson #WaterSafety #4thofJuly

The Dangers of Consumer Fireworks

Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death. #BeSafeBurleson

We are heartbroken. Our deepest condolences to his friends, family and fire family. Lieutenant Fozkos represents what an outstanding example of a professional is. Rest easy brother we will take it from here. 

The City of Crowley and the Crowley Fire Department are saddened by the sudden passing of Crowley Fire Lieutenant Robert G. Fozkos, who died in a tragic motorcycle accident on Friday, June 26. Lt. Fozkos joined the Crowley Fire Department in 2012 and was named Lieutenant in 2015.

Usually, around this time of year, we post about fireworks and everyone tells us we are the worst. But, you guys, our communications team is TIRED. 2020 has been EXHAUSTING for us. If you could, it would be super legit if everyone would just like be cool this year. Just this year, don't do anything crazy. We can reevaluate in 2021.

But if you want some reminders about things you could yell at us about they are below 👇👇👇👇👇👇
*Fireworks have always been illegal inside the city limits of Burleson.
*We are sorry if you were annexed and now can not shoot fireworks.
* The city's fireworks show is put on my a professional pyrotechnician, we have fire staff on standby and it is monitored very closely by our Fire Marshal who will have the ultimate say on if the show goes on. For instance, if the wind is over a certain speed, we will not have the show.
*Not even sparklers, inside the city limits. They burn at 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. It's literally like handing your child a match.
*Things were not safer when you were a child. In fact, there were so many children injured and killed from fireworks and explosives that Congress passed the Child Protection Act of 1966, which created a law imposing restrictions on fireworks and more.
*The fine for shooting fireworks inside the city limits can be up to $2000
*Please know we try to respond to all the calls about people shooting illegal fireworks as quickly as we can, but we typically have lots of them and we have to physically see your neighbors shoot the fireworks.

Love to everyone 😘😘😘 Be safe out there, Burleson

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of one of our public safety communications specialist. On Saturday, May 16, 2020, Norilisse Serrano was working the 911 console when she began having a medical issue. Burleson communications staff summoned medical assistance at 11:36 a.m., and she was transported to Texas Health Huguley Hospital – Fort Worth South, where she passed away at 12:39 p.m.

Nori, as she was known, served as a telecommunicator with the Mansfield Police and Fire Communications Center for fourteen years. She began her career with the Burleson Police Department in March 2020. Nori held a Master’s Telecommunications certificate with over twelve hundred total training hours.

Funeral arrangements are pending. Donations can be made through the Chisholm Trail 100 Club, a non-profit that supports first responders in Johnson County. Donations can also be made through the City of Burleson call center at (682) 312-2780. The call center is available Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Nori’s experience made her a tremendous asset for the Burleson Police Department,” said Burleson Police Chief Billy Cordell. “We were honored she served our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nori’s husband, nine-year-old daughter and her entire family.”

Texas House Bill 1090 that was passed in the 86th Legislative Session classifies dispatchers as first responders, in the same way as EMS personnel, firefighters, and police.

It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the Coronavirus. The CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

For more information about the CDC's recommendation regarding the use of cloth face coverings, please click here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html?fbclid=IwAR3bN6MZmXAXm11GunfkiuGHA6yd4gPG6DYyNg2Zz2qFa-5kdpmqsjv0tkU

We want to remind the community that only ONE member of your household is allowed to be shopping at an essential business. This amended declaration intends to reduce the number of people gathered in one area and to create space for proper social distancing.

Thank you Burleson Fire Department for the Enchiladas last night. Me and my partner truly appreciated it...especially considering how our night was going. Your friendly neighborhood Medstar medic 🤗
Good afternoon. I'm looking for a First Aid/CPR class that includes child/infant certification. May become foster parents to a grandchild. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thank you guys for getting to my house so fast today and saving it. We are greatful for you guys. We had no idea the boat would catch fire like it did. May God bless you all
HUGE shout out to our partners at BFD! Note from one of our crews this morning - shows the incredible partnership and deep respect!! "Burleson FD (I wish I knew what station) pulled out the stops tonight. I don't have the words, and you guys know if I'm speechless, that's something! We made scene on a lady with chest pain. I released Burleson FD fairly quickly. They'd already made patient contact and done the initial assessment, and gave a good report. I knew they'd need to decon and get back to the station. As we were getting the 12 lead, one of the guys came back and asked me for a moment. He double checked to make sure we didn't need them. But then he surprised me. When I assured him we were good and he was clear, he told me the guys at the station had made lunches for any MedStar crew they encountered. He then asked if it was okay to put our lunch in the cab of the ambulance. Waiting for us in the truck were two brown paper bags like the ones I used to take to school when I was a kid. And in them, a bag of chips and a foil wrapped sandwich. According to my partner, the same crew made scene on our next call and were ready with more lunch for whatever crew they found. I didn't see them, I was inside with the patient. Maybe I'm sentimental. But that really meant a LOT. Those Burleson firefighters made me feel like family. It was a very thoughtful gesture and one that was greatly appreciated. It wasn't just the lunch itself, it was the kindness and respect that hit me."
Last week I was in a auto accident in Burleson. It happened on 174 by H-E-B supermarket. I just wanted to thank the responders in the fire department for their care. They were very professional very kind and very patient. Thank you
