I see there’s a new siren going up where fire station 41 used to be. Should I expect any kind of audible test of it?
Today is the beginning of day 8 waiting for COVID test results from one week ago Tuesday taken a Tasby Middle School. Is that expected?
As of June 1, 2020, Inspector for Code Compliance, Elizabeth Lopez, Badge C1495 has left us three violations for our homestead on Roseland avenue between Peak and Haskell in the alleyway for trash, weeds and etc. There is a homeless camp is set up and there is f***l matter, needles, trash and debris not safe for me to clean up and handle, yet I am being threatened to be fined over it. I am also being told that it is my responsibility always to clean up from my fence to halfway in the ally, every-time homeless make a mess or again, I can be held liable. We emailed our city council (Medrano') to have the camp removed earlier in the year and they come back in days. Inspector Elizabeth wants to fine us if we don't constantly clean up after this homeless camp and I refuse to jeopardize mine or my wife's safety. I called code compliance who asked me to call the police. The police came out. They were not able to assist as the camp members were not on site at the moment but did tell me to "push the trash to the middle" and that it was a "bu****it violation". It is unsafe for my family to be near this mess and I refuse to be liable for cleaning it. #YourMoveDallas The violation # is Case 20-00568842.
I have added another free Zoom-based training on Resilience and Psychological First Aid on Sunday, June 14 at 2 pm Pacific time. You can receive a certificate of attendance (I'm a CERT instructor and the curriculum is an expansion of the Disaster Psychology module). Training is open to everyone -- you don't have to be CERT. Please spread the word, especially to CERT groups! I've had several requests to hold another morning session so that people in Europe can participate -- working on that. Probably on the 20th or 21st. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/resilience-psychological-first-aid-tickets-107866266908
You need to make sure American citizens get those beds, not one illegal alien should be in those beds before an American citizen.
Siren test today??
6/23/2019
Thank you Mr. Vaz for explaining why our sirens did not sound during Sunday’s damaging storms. The citizens of Dallas really appreciate what the City of Dallas Office of Emergency Management does and utilizing an Outdoor Warning Siren System is such a wonderful (additional) way of receiving warning.
It has been a very long day for many Emergency Management officials, including here in the City Of Dallas with a long day of severe weather. When sirens sound, warnings are issued, this means taking action to save life and property. Most importantly, lives. Big thank you also to the @U.S NWS Fort Worth Texas as well.
DST Change you tests back to noon.
For anyone who cares, have your employees carry mosquito dunks with them on their daily outings and when they see standing water, drop in the dunk. May help with mosquitoes.
