Great information from our neighbors. Low hanging trees can cause not only access issues, but damage to the trucks. This can put the trucks out of service for repairs.

Low-hanging tree branches can be a major hazard! Obstructions across residential roadways can seriously interfere with emergency vehicle response times by making first responders slow down or even reroute when seconds matter most. Limbs that hang over streets should be trimmed to allow for approximately 17 feet of clearance. To report road hazards and low-hanging branches over residential roadways, visit the following links.

Shortly after 01:30 am on Jan 24, 2021, Champions ESD was dispatched to a report of a vehicle on fire under an apartment building at the Providence Apartments, 5100 W FM 1960. Within minutes, firefighters arrived to find a heavy fire condition with several vehicles on fire beneath an involved and occupied apartment building. Units worked with Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies to simultaneously fight the fire and evacuate the apartments above. Champions was assisted by firefighters from Klein Volunteer Fire Department, Little York Volunteer Fire Department, Ponderosa Fire Department, Cypress Creek Fire Department / Harris County ESD 13, Northwest Volunteer Fire Department, and several medic units from Cypress Creek EMS. In addition to these agencies and responders, CESD would also like to thank Spring Fire Department for providing back-in coverage to the area.

From Harris County Fire Marshal:
HCFMO investigators, HazMat, and inspections responded to a 2-alarm apartment fire with Champions Emergency Services District.

Two HCSO deputies were transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation. They are credited with notifying numerous residents of the fire and getting them to safety. One firefighter was transported with a knee injury. There were no injuries to any residents of the buildings.

41 total residents were displaced due to fire, heat, smoke and water damage. Building 6 is a total loss, with major structural damage. There were 18 units in building six. Two other buildings sustained water, smoke and heat damage.

The fire originated in a vehicle parked under Building 6. The investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.

On Jan. 3, HCFMO Investigators were requested by @ChampionsESD for a fire in a building at a used car dealership, Cars and Trucks for Less, located in the 13800 block of Bammel N Houston. Investigators determined that Patrick E. Gartin (DOB 10/09/80) intentionally set fire to the building because he thought an employee had stolen from him. Gartin was booked into the Harris County Jail on unrelated charges, but has since has been charged with arson for his involvment in the fire at Cars and Trucks for Less.

Sleeping with a closed door can save your life in the event of a home fire, yet only 35% of people always sleep with their door closed. #ThrowbackThursday to this real-life example from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department showing how a closed door can make a life-saving difference. Encourage your friends and family to #CloseBeforeYouDoze — it could save a life.

When people think of “holiday safety” this year, their thoughts will likely turn to shielding themselves and their loved ones from COVID-19. But the American Red Cross wants to remind people that, even during a pandemic, families still face plenty of non-viral hazards on Thanksgiving, including the threat of fire.

According to the Red Cross, Thanksgiving is one of the peak days for cooking fires, which is the top cause of home fires in the U.S. Most often, these emergencies are caused by unattended cooking — a behavior shared by nearly 70 percent of Americans, as shown in a national American Red Cross survey earlier this year.

To keep holiday gatherings fire-free, the American Red Cross offers the following tips:

Keep an eye on what you fry: Never leave cooking food unattended. Before leaving the kitchen, even for a short period of time, turn off the stove.

Move items that can burn away from the stove: This includes dishtowels, bags, boxes, paper, and curtains. Also, keep children and pets at least three feet away, and avoid wearing loose clothing while cooking.

Know the signs: When frying food, turn the burner off if you see smoke or if the grease starts to boil. Carefully remove the pan from the burner.

Keep a pan lid or a cookie sheet nearby: Use it to cover the pan if it catches on fire. This will put out the fire. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.

Two minutes to escape: Test your smoke alarms monthly and practice your home fire escape plan until everyone can get out in less than two minutes — the amount of time most people have to get out of a burning home before it’s too late.

Visit redcross.org/fire for more information, including an escape plan to practice with family members, or download the free Red Cross Emergency App (search “American Red Cross” in app stores).

We get many questions regarding how to dispose of unused medication. We have GOOD NEWS. Champions ESD is participating in a Single-Use Disposal System funded by Texas Health and Human Services Texas Targeted Opioid Response. Postage paid envelopes can be picked up at Fire Station 11 on Champion Forest Dr. Take the envelope home, deposit your unwanted medications, and drop the sealed envelope in a USPS Mailbox. Your medications are incinerated still in the sealed bag, keeping them out of landfills and the water system. If you have any questions: please contact Danielle Campbell at 713-743.7016 or email [email protected]

Teen rescued from Apartment Fire. Today at 3:25pm, Champions ESD was dispatched to an apartment fire with persons trapped at 12801 Champion Forest. Station 11 crews arrived first and quickly rescued a young lady from the second-floor window of her smoke-filled apartment. The fire was quickly knocked down by the first alarm companies. We were assisted by Klein Volunteer Fire Department, Cypress Creek Fire Department / Harris County ESD 13, Little York Fire Department, Ponderosa Fire Department, Cypress Creek EMS, and the Harris County Fire Marshal. Spring Fire Department backed into Station 11 to cover our district while we were unavailable. Big thanks to everyone for the assistance and great job!

Keep watching this one closely.

Keep watching this one closely.

Dear Houston, Galveston, and all of Southeast Texas,

Laura is now mimicking the path of the 1900 Storm that forever changed Galveston.

Those of you who have been following me over the years know that I won't sugarcoat anything, so let me be frank. While the exact landfall and intensity are not set in stone, Laura is likely to become a large and powerful Gulf hurricane, and if it continues on this new path toward Texas, it *could* rival the 15-20ft storm surge of Ike and the 130 mph winds of Harvey. Unlike Harvey, this would be a more “classic” hurricane that is in and out in one day, with impacts beginning late Wednesday and continuing into Thursday.

Many of you may be skeptical of the latest forecast because of the big shift the National Hurricane Center made yesterday with Marco. I understand that skepticism, but the data is only getting better and more reliable. Believe the shifts.

I can assure you that the hard-working men and women at the National Hurricane Center have only one goal in mind, and that is to make the best possible forecast to give advance warning that will help save lives. They aren’t trying to help us garner TV ratings or boost the local economy with panic-buying as some have bizarrely accused. They are simply doing their best to predict the future and warn people in the path of the most destructive storms our planet produces. And they are the best on the planet at what they do.

Now keep in mind the average forecast track error 4 days out is about 130 miles. Thus we don’t yet know for certain exactly how Laura will impact us, but we’ve been put on notice that we need to be preparing for a potential major hurricane hit in four days. It could still miss us to the east, but the trend is not in our favor right now.

We will continue to keep you calmly informed and aware here as you prepare: abc13.com/forecast

(POSTED 10AM SUNDAY 8/23/2020)

As you can see, the track keeps changing. Be prepared.
