Johnson County Emergency Management

Johnson County Emergency Management In case of Emergency - Dial 9-1-1 This is the Official page of Johnson County Emergency Management

Our goal at Johnson County's Office of Emergency management is to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from the effects of disasters, be they natural disasters, such as tornadoes or floods or man made problems such as chemical spills. The County Judge is charged by stature with responsibility for emergency management planning and operations. Most departments within Johnson County have emergency functions in addition to their normal duties and play key roles in our emergency operations strategy. All departments work together to coordinate a service and prepare for an emergency or disaster. The County is also privileged to have a Local Emergency Planning Committee (L.E.P.C.). This is a voluntary organization dedicated to improving responses to emergencies in Johnson County. The membership is made of leaders from Public Safety agencies, business, and industry. Stephanie Parker is acting Chairman. Emergency Management also manages the Cities Readiness program for Johnson County which is a program of the Dept of State Health Services. This is a program that will provide medicine to the citizens of Johnson County if and when a pandemic event breaks out or a terrorism biological attack hits our country

UPDATE: BOIL WATER NOTICE RESCINDED - June 9, 2019

Figure: 30 TAC §290.47(c)(3)

On June 7, 2019 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Burleson public water system,1260002, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of June 9, 2019.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Kevin North by telephone at 817-426-9839 or by email at [email protected] or in person at 725 SE John Jones Dr, Burleson, TX.

WATER BOIL NOTICE ISSUED: As of June 7, The neighborhoods of Oak Valley and Plantation and any residents within the blue boundary of the map will need to boil their water prior to consumption.

******If your home is west of I-35W, in Burleson city limits, than this notice DOES NOT pertain to you**** If your home is east of I-35W, in Burleson city limits, than please view the map below to determine if you need to adhere to this notice.

UPDATE: 8:30 a.m. Saturday, June 8

At approximately 10:30 p.m. Friday, June 7 Public Works crews were able to repair the 12 inch water main break.
Full water pressure has been restored to the areas of Oak Valley and Plantation. Last night, Public Works flushed the lines and they have collected a water sample so that it can be tested to ensure the water is safe. The water test takes 24 hours.

Please continue to boil your water for consumption. We appreciate your patience in this matter and apologize for the inconvenience.

ORIGINAL POST:

Due to a water main break at approximately 2 p.m. on June 7, 2019 as a result of a contractor hitting the line, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Burleson PWS 1260002 public water system to notify all customers, who live within the boundaries of the map, to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions).

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Aaron Russell at [email protected]

Here are several models for tomorrow's rain and storm event. As you can see, the timing and intensity is not set in stone but everyone should see rain. All modes of severe weather are possible, but higher chances will be east of the area.

Bottom line - make sure to have a way to monitor changing weather conditions throughout the morning and afternoon on Saturday!

So you want to be a meteorologist?

Look at these models for 7am Saturday, and say EXACTLY when storms will arrive in your area. And don't get it wrong!

This is why timing for storm arrival tomorrow is not set in stone. As storms form well to our west overnight, a couple hour difference in storm development or a slight change in the track of those storms will make a BIG difference in storm arrival time here in North Texas.

For the DFW area: most likely timing looks to be around mid-morning. However, because there are so many variables it could be earlier or later depending on how storms behave.

We're keeping an eye on Saturday's forecast. The potential for all modes of severe weather exists, so make sure to have ...

There is an increasing potential for strong to severe storms Saturday across North & Central TX. If you have outdoor activities planned, have an alternate plan in place and prepare to be flexible. Thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage and intensity through the day Saturday.
