Expect Increased Texas DPS Enforcement This Labor Day Weekend

Have a safe Labor Day weekend, Coppell!

A few safety tips if you're staying home this year:
✅ Keep those grills away from your home structure and any overhanging porches or trees.
✅ Check your gas grill for leaks, frayed cords, or other damages.
✅ A clean grill is a safe grill! Avoid the char buildup on your grill surface.
✅ Always have a responsible adult watching the kids when playing in or around the pool or open water.

If you're planning to hit the road this year:
✅ Check your vehicle to make sure it is properly maintained and always ensure your cargo is secure.
✅ Buckle up everyone in the vehicle — it’s the law.
✅ Put the phones down! Drive distraction free.
✅ Make alternate transportation plans if you are consuming alcohol.
✅Move Over or Slow Down for police, fire, EMS, TxDOT vehicles and tow trucks.
✅Drive defensively, as holiday travel can present additional challenges.

🚴🧠 Helmets save noggins!

One of our Fire Families learned this over the weekend during a bike ride when their kiddo ironically crashed into a fire hydrant. Because she was wearing a helmet that was fitted properly, thankfully she was able to walk away with no injury...can't say the same for the hydrant! (kidding, it was fine)

A reminder that in Coppell, City Ordinance requires that all bike riders and bike passengers aged 14 and under must wear a helmet. So protect those young noggins, Coppell! Safe riding!

Such awesome contributions so far! These teen volunteer SERVE cards (think 'Bingo' but Coppell-style) are a great way for teens to stay engaged in the community and earn up to eight volunteer hours.

Recently, the City of Coppell, TX Municipal Government released a SERVE activity card to our virtual teen volunteers. Activities promoted #civicengagement and #communitybuilding ❤ Here's photos of teens participating!

Shout outs to Biodiversity Education Center at Coppell Nature Park, Life Safety Park, Coppell Parks & Recreation, Coppell Farmer's Market and Cozby Library and Community Commons for making the SERVE card a success!

Do you know the difference between a 'Watch' and a 'Warning'?

A 'Watch' means all the ingredients necessary for a weather event to happen are available, and you should keep an eye out. A 'Warning' means that a weather event is here or near, and you should take precautions immediately! It's a good idea to have multiple ways of receiving weather warnings, such as a weather radio, mobile phone, and local television/radio coverage. If it's still a bit confusing, take a gander at the first picture which breaks it down using cupcakes (who doesn't love those!?).

Why mention this in the middle of summer? For starters, Texas can experience severe weather any time of the year, from tornadoes and severe thunderstorms, to excessive heat or flooding.

Strong to severe storms are possible across DFW this evening (7/30), with damaging wind gusts and hail being the main threats. Use this post as a reminder to stay safe and weather-aware, Coppell!

We'd love to hear from you: did you know the difference between a 'Watch' and a 'Warning'?
👍 if you knew the difference already.
😮 if you didn't know the difference.
😡 if you've never been a fan of TX weather (but you should still stay informed 👌)

If your holiday weekend will involve a trip to the pool, lake, beach, or river, be sure to brush up on these Water Safety tips from the American Red Cross:

💦 Maintain social distancing at public locations, both in and out of the water.
💦 Wear face coverings on land, and don't share goggles, snorkels, or other personal items.
💦 Swim in designated areas, preferably with a lifeguard on duty.
💦 Designate a water watcher whose sole responsibility is to supervise people during any in- or near-water activity.
🏆 Pro Tip: visit Life Safety Park to get your very own Water Watcher lanyard and soda can koozie!
💦 Always wear a life jacket when boating, tubing, or canoeing/kayaking!

For more information on these and other safety tips, check out the Red Cross Mobile Swim App, where you'll find resources for parents and caregivers along with child-friendly games, videos, and quizzes. Links below.

Grilling is a great American and summertime pastime. It can also be dangerous if certain precautions aren't taken. July is the peak month for grill fires. If you'll be having an outdoor feast like many families this Independence Day weekend, here's a few safety tips to help you be the ultimate "Grill Boss" 🕶️:

🔥 Be sure your grill is a safe distance away from your home structure.
🔥 Children/pets should be kept away from the cooking area.
🔥 It's a good idea to have a fire extinguisher nearby for any flare-ups.
🔥 Stay outdoors or in sight of your cooking food.
🔥 Be sure to clean your grill after each use.

Happy grilling! For more information on home grill fires, check out this link:

They may look innocent enough, but sparklers are no joke! They are a primary source of injury for children under five. It's always encouraged to leave the light shows to the experts, but please consider these tips should you decide to celebrate the holiday with sparklers:
🎇 Instead of holding them, set sparklers in a pot full of sand.
🎆 Remain standing and stationary while using sparklers.
🎇 Hold them at arm's length.
🎆 Don't hold a child in your arms while using sparklers.
🎆 Wear closed-toe shoes to prevent foot burns.
🎇 Drop used sparklers in a bucket of water: they can remain hot long after the flame has gone out.

Check back tomorrow for more Independence Day themed safety tips for you and your families!

Fireworks Safety NFPA Dan Doofus

Fireworks cause thousands of injuries each year 😵. In addition, consumer fireworks are ILLEGAL in populated areas of Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant counties. We know things will be different this Independence Day with many professional fireworks shows canceled, but don't be a [Dan] Doofus!

Here's a few other ideas to get into the patriotic spirit 🇺🇸:
⭐️ Use glow sticks - a fun and safe alternative to sparklers.
⭐️ Noise makers are sure to make a statement...just be respectful of your neighbors and during the evenings.
⭐️ Have an outdoor movie night! Don't forget the bugspray!
⭐️ Red, white, and blue silly string...fun for all ages.
⭐️ Make a patriotic craft or recipe with the family.
⭐️ Throw a birthday party for the USA, and don't forget the cake.

Celebrate safely!
