ESD fire departments cover over 700 square miles of area and protect a population of over 100,000 residents. The ESD contracts with 16 fire departments to provide fire suppression and emergency medical services to the people of Johnson County. Four of these fire departments are composed of both paid and volunteer firefighters and are called combination departments. Twelve of the fire departments operate with all volunteer members.

3 new cases from the weekend. Going forward, any death listed as caused by COV19 will also be included as a positive. One has historically not been, for a total of 117 positives today.

The state had mistaken the spelling for one address and posted it in Alvarado but was actually in Keene, so each city has had numbers adjusted to reflect the change, so they’re all in green since they changed.

Added multiple recoveries, up to 82.

As a side note, I went to Walmart, Lowe’s and Home Depot in Cleburne this weekend to grab some things. It’s disappointing to see probably less than 20% of folks wearing a mask. Really, I hope folks will consider it doesn’t matter if they feel sick. You can carry it and not know. I hope folks will consider everyone else.

We may still tweak the format some. But what we are showing are the cumulative totals vs released cases. For general purposes “released” cases means they have finished their home isolation and are no longer required to be monitored by DSHS. Essentially it’s recovered but they are calling it “last date of home isolation” so we will stick with released as our definition.

We added 1 Joshua; 2 Burleson on 4/20

Also, we found some changes from PUM to positive in state data yesterday but are old cases, so we added them to the totals but have been released for some time.

Cumulative Total: 57
Total Released: 25

Alvarado: 3
Burleson: 25
Cleburne: 8
Mansfield: 2
Joshua: 2
Keene: 1
Venus: 1
Unincorporated JoCo: 15

We fill find a better way than the attached line sheet (first picture) to show where the releases were but we are running out of time today.

Johnson County Emergency Management

First, thank you all for having some level of understanding that we are doing the best we can to provide information about a health emergency while not being public health experts.

We have run into an issue that will at least for some amount of time change the way we report data to you starting tomorrow.

I’ll try to lay it out.

1) DSHS, when they get a positive result, provides our health authority the name, age, and address of that person. They DO NOT provide information about the state of that person, i.e. are they in the hospital, mildly sick, etc.

2) We take that address and our Health Authority issues a quarantine order. We also flag the address in the dispatch system in case we get a public safety call to that house.

3) DSHS notifies us that the address has been released. We have assumed that meant that they have recovered, and in most cases I think that is true. This is important, they do not notify us an “individual” was released, rather they release the address.

Fast forward to today. We have been releasing “active cases” meaning they are cases we have been notified of and have not yet received a “release” from DSHS, PLUS, we have included “Recovered” meaning that DSHS released the house.

We have at least one case and there could be more, where the house was quarantined, time went by and the house was released, but the person that prompted the house to be quarantined is in the hospital. So despite the “house” being released, the person has not yet recovered. So if we drop that number/town off the list because the house is released it wouldn’t accurately represent the situation.

AND considering the ONLY reason we know that person isn’t recovered is because a family member has posted information on here, we can no longer assume that just because we are given “release this house” we can not assume they are recovered. If that family member had not told us, we would have gone straight on assuming that person was recovered because their house was released. And we would assume it’s no longer an active case.

So going forward, the best we can do is provide a cumulative total of the positive number in each city or unincorporated portion of the county.

With the limited data provided to us by DSHS we cannot accurately capture who is currently an active positive case, who isn’t, or who has truly recovered.

I’m spent many many hours today trying to find a way to get additional data from the state or even touch base with the address to get direct information but I don’t have the man power to do that. I’m assuming this is the reason the DSHS only provides cumulative data.

So we tried to be more narrow in the scope of information we provided, but since we can’t assume a released house means a recovered house anymore then this is the best we can do.

The new format of cumulative data vs. active data will start tomorrow morning.

General information

The Johnson County Emergency Services District #1 (ESD) was originally formed in the mid-1950's as a Rural Fire Prevention District. The District was created to help provide funding for Johnson County fire departments. In 2003, the State of Texas required all Rural Fire Prevention Districts to convert into Emergency Services Districts as outlined in the State Health & Safety Code Section 775. Of the approximately 280 Emergency Services Districts in the State of Texas, the Johnson County ESD has more individual fire departments within its organization than any other ESD. Because most small fire departments require help when fighting fires, having a countywide organization with a common dispatching system, provides a great opportunity to combine these resources for the protection of lives and property.

Make sure Johnson County homeowners and business owners know the building codes, laws and consumer awareness as shady "roofing companies" start coming into town! RCAT is a non-profit association where you'll find roofing company members are voluntarily licensed and go through extensive continuing education, are insured, all things to further protect the consumer. Search www.rooftex.com for RCAT Members in your area, and our consumer tips page BEFORE you hire a roofing company!
Come on out guys. This seminar will open your eyes to first responder suicides. All are welcome
