We are excited to share the latest analytics from the Single Use Disposal (SUDs) system funded by Texas Health and Human Services Texas Targeted Opioid Response. So far, Cypress Creek has destroyed:

•Cypress Creek Fire Department Station #21 in 4 returned TAE envelopes with 1.6 lbs. of medications safely destroyed
•Cypress Creek Fire Department Station #23 in 5 returned TAE envelopes with 3.88 lbs. of medications safely destroyed
•Cypress Creek EMS Station #54 in 7 returned TAE envelopes with 3.54 lbs. of medications safely destroyed
•Cypress Creek EMS Station #56 in 3 returned TAE envelopes with 1.16 lbs. of medications safely destroyed
•Cypress Creek Fire Department HQ/Admin in 3 returned TAE envelopes with 1.82 lbs. of medications safely destroyed

For a total of 22 TAE envelopes returned, destroying 12 lbs. of medications. Of that combined total, 7.3 lbs. of medications were delivered in envelopes retrieved from CCFD stations.

It's fantastic to see this program at work! Stop by any one of our four departments to pick up a pre-addressed take-away envelope. All you have to do is fill the envelope with unwanted or unused prescription medication, seal it up, and drop it into a USPS mail box for pick up. With this quick and easy system, you can help to keep our community safe!

Teen rescued by firefighters after slipping into fast-moving creek in NW Harris County

On the evening of Thursday, May 27, 2021, around 6:20 pm, Cypress Creek Fire Department was dispatched to a reported Swiftwater Rescue incident in Cypress Creek with a victim in the water. Our crews responded along with Cypress Creek EMS and Harris County Precinct 4 Constables Office. Upon the arrival of the dispatched address, our personnel was told the juvenile victim was entering the water, and due to the recent rains, the current was powerful. The victim was then swept downstream and found a low-hanging tree branch to which he was holding on. Our crews were able to deploy one of two rescue boats to gain access to the victim, and he was retrieved into the boat by the crews without any injuries. The patient was safely returned back to land and was turned over to CCEMS crews to be medically evaluated.
