Differences between a Tornado Watch vs Warning!

A Watch means Be Prepared! Conditions are favorable for tornado development, so make sure you have ways to receive warnings if issued.

A Warning means Take Action! A tornado is happening or about to happen - seek shelter!

Today, Northwest Volunteer Fire Department and Harris County Emergency Services District #20 are officially designated with the Insurance Services Office (ISO) as a Class 2 department. This Public Protection Classification is an improvement from the previous rating of 5. We have been working hard to make changes to keep our community safe and improve our service delivery.
Tonight, Northwest VFD held a promotion and badge pinning ceremony for our two newest company officers in our organization. Jeffery Foster with 21 years of service to our organization and Eric Ortiz with 11 years, were promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. Congratulations Lieutenants Foster and Ortiz!

It is not always about saving lives, but sometimes it’s about bringing joy and love to others. We are proud to partner with other organizations and agencies to make the holiday toy drive successful. Our members help by shopping, sorting, loading, unloading, and delivering. Thank you Constable Alan Rosen and all the wonderful staff at Precinct 1!
Our firefighters spent yesterday getting in some quality training using our flashover chamber.
Day 2 is under way and a lot of collaboration between agencies is happening!
Day 1 of Columbia Southern University Chief Officer Academy is completed. Personnel from our agency along with 15 other agencies are learning to be better Chief Officers from the legends Chief John Salka and Chief Rick Lasky!
Another great job by the Harris County Fire Marshal making an arrest for the 4 alarm arson fire of the Great Value Storage we responded to on January 2, 2022.
Overnight, Northwest Fire Department units responded to a fire at the Great Value Storage located in the 14200 block of State Highway 249. Fire crews battled strong winds to extinguish the fire but were able to keep the fire contained to one building. More than 100 units in the one storage building were burned. A total of 4 alarms of crews responded and we were assisted by Harris County Fire Marshal investigators and HAZMAT, Champions Emergency Services District, Klein Volunteer Fire Department, HCESD 17 Little York Fire, Cy-Fair Fire Department, Harris County ESD#24/Aldine Fire & Rescue, Cy-Fair Fire Department, Cypress Creek Fire Department / Harris County ESD 13, and Harris County Emergency Corps.

Investigators determined the fire was intentionally set. If you have any information regarding this fire, call Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS (8477).
As you celebrate bringing in the new year with fireworks tonight, please keep these tips in mind.

1. Fireworks can and will smolder for hours after they are fired. When you are done, submerge the used fireworks in a bucket of water overnight. DO NOT throw them in the trash can and then pull the trash can inside or up against the house.

2. Aerial fireworks are very unpredictable where they will land. What goes up must come down, and that could be on top of houses or in gutters. Again, fireworks will smolder for hours and could start a fire on the roof which many times go undetected for hours.

3. Use fireworks as they are intended and NEVER light fireworks in your hand.

Be safe, have fun, and know that we have extra staff on duty to handle all emergencies tonight!
Northwest VFD partners with Grace & Guidance to provide counseling services for our employees, volunteers, and their family members for when the first responders need help. If you are a first responder, it is okay to seek help and you are not alone!
