NCT9-1-1 went through a mapping upgrade that added new features for our service area: 9-1-1 Chat and Enhanced Location.

9-1-1 Chat allows call takers to chat directly with you over text. This chat will come from a 10-digit number to your device and can be translated to over 70 languages. Text-to-9-1-1 is also available in our service area, which is initiated by you directly texting the digits "9-1-1."

Enhanced Location sends a text from a 10-digit number to your device containing a link. If you click the link, your location will be sent to the 9-1-1 call taker.

Don’t let the sunlight fool you! Another night of severe cold is in store before we begin to warm up tomorrow. Any melted snow/slush will refreeze rapidly as the sun goes down and we dip below 20 degrees. Please use extreme caution on the roadway and keep a safe distance from other motorists. If you are stranded or involved in an accident, please dial 911.

We are almost through SNOVID-21, and CHFD is here to make sure you get to the other side safely!

Warming Centers – TDEM

The National Weather Service is forecasting additional winter precipitation this evening and overnight. Temperatures will remain below freezing until the end of the week. TxDOT and others will continue to monitor and sand the roads; however, with the low temperatures, icy and treacherous driving conditions will remain, including on neighborhood and secondary streets. If you must travel, please use appropriate caution when driving.

Additionally, the state continues to experience record-breaking energy demand. Please do your part to reduce electric use as much as possible. Ways to reduce your electric use include turning down your thermostat to 68-degrees, turning off and unplugging non-essential lights and appliances, and closing shades and blinds to reduce the amount of heat lost through windows.

If you do not have power, close curtains and blinds to keep in heat, close off rooms to avoid losing heat, wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing, eat and drink food because food provides energy to warm the body, avoid caffeine and alcohol, stuff towels or rags in cracks under doors, and if you are experiencing a life threatening or emergency event, please call 911. If you need a place to stay warm, a list of warming centers can be found here: https://tdem.texas.gov/warming-centers/

San Marcos PD has the right idea. Everyone get their nuggs while they can!

Once the snow and ice start please stay home. If you must go out please slow down and be very cautious.

And don’t forget move over for our first responders!

It’s cold and getting even colder throughout the weekend! If you need to go out, slow down and use caution while driving. Watch for ice on overpasses, bridges, and roads. Our first responders are out working in the elements, so please keep them in your thoughts during this time. Be safe & stay warm! #SnowmageddonMaybe

02/11/2021

The roads have become very icy overnight. If you don’t have to be out please stay home. For those who must drive, please slow down and take your time.

Also, with all our first responders dealing with crashes, remember to move over for emergency vehicles and give them room to work.

02/10/2021

It’s 34 degrees outside. How about a little workout to warm up?

Our hearts are with yours, Cresson FD.

A few weeks ago we told everyone that some of our firefighters were helping with wildfires in the western US. One of them updated her Facebook profile picture yesterday to show the terrain where she was working. A couple of hours ago we learned that today she lost her life on the fireground. Our department is numbed by the news and we are hurting.

Thank you Chief Tittle for your dedication and service, you will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with our family in Lewisville.

It is with great sadness that Lewisville Local 3606 announces that at 4:15 AM, Chief Timothy Tittle of the Lewisville Fire Department passed away . Chief Tittle was a 40 plus year veteran of the Lewisville Fire Department.

Chief Tittle was a fighter. He aggressively battled cancer and beat it back into remission multiple times. Even during the toughest times, his loyalty and dedication to the department and the City of Lewisville never wavered. He loved being our Fire Chief.

Rest easy Chief Tittle, we have it from here.

This afternoon Lt. Williams completed a 110 story memorial stair climb for the fallen first responders of 9/11. It's unimaginable the hell those heros were walking into, but they never stopped, never complained, and gave their lives to help others.

Make sure your kids know what to do in an emergency. It's never to early to start teaching them about 911.

What would your child do in an emergency? Ask yourself these three questions to find out: https://hubs.ly/H0k6V_00

It's unfortunate we have to share information like what to do in an active shooter, but it could happen anywhere at anytime. Be prepared. Be ready to fight.

If you are out and see something that doesn't fit in, call the police! See something, say something!

An “Active Shooter Incident” could occur just about anywhere, as too many past shooting have taught and shown us.

Though no one can ever be completely prepared for one of these incidents, there are a few things you can do in response to an active shooter. They
are:

••••RUN••••

If you determine that you can reach an escape path to a safer area, then get out

Be aware of your surroundings.

Have an exit plan.

Move away from the threat as quickly as possible.
Create as much distance between you and the threat as possible.

••••HIDE••••

If you can’t evacuate, find a secure place to hide out.

Create distance between you and the threat.

Find barriers to prevent or slow down the shooter from getting to you.

Turn off the lights and silence your phones
Remain out of sight by hiding behind large objects.

Be quiet.

••••FIGHT••••

As a last resort, if you can’t hide out and if you have absolutely no other option, confront the active shooter.

Be aggressive, yell, and commit to your actions.

Do not fight fairly - Throw items and use improvised weapons.

Survive by any means necessary

We are saddened to hear of another child death as a result of being left in a vehicle. These are 100% preventable! If you are out and see a child in a car alone, please call 911!

On August 1, at 5:15 pm, Garland Police and Fire responded to the report of a child unconscious in a vehicle at a car wash in the 3300 block of Arapaho Road. Paramedics arrived and the child, a nine-month old female, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The investigation is early, but investigators believe the child was left in the vehicle for an unknown amount of time before being discovered by her father.

At this time, no charges have been filed.

The investigation is ongoing.

911 exists for a reason. If there is an emergency please call 911.

Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and other social media doesn't get first responders to you.

We can't help unless we know you need our help!

Added another thing I never thought I’d have to say to grown folk this morning...

If your loved one is choking, the proper vehicle to use to get help is calling 911. It is not Facebook Messenger. Ever. Especially at 1 in the morning. Luckily the message four minutes later was ‘it came out, I think we got it from here.’

I can’t with people this morning... but good on the chokee for making it. At least I’m assuming you did. I have no way of knowing, cause you know, NO ONE CALLED HELP FOR YOU.
