Hit of the party...
Party time at 83. However no firefighters have been injured on the water slide yet.
Good morning from station 83. We have a very busy day. We have interviews this morning and then a Birthday party this afternoon at the station.
Have a great day
Look towards the sky and stay alert.
Severe storm threat up to ENHANCED (Level 3) across much of North Texas today. Enhanced area of low level shear along a boundary just south of the Red River could pose the risk for a couple of tornadoes today embedded in a messy storm complex.
Happy Father’s Day
Our thoughts and prayers go out to
North Richland Hills Police Department
Tarrant County Sheriff Office
Both lost officers tonight.
May God place his hands around our families, and may we always trust in him.
The updated weather is not looking good for Sunday afternoon
June 9, 2019: Now a level 3 risk of severe weather this afternoon and evening for damaging straight-line wind potential. ALL storms will produce dangerous lightning and those outdoors (including on lakes) should have a plan of shelter ready. The strongest storms may produce hurricane-force straight-line winds over 75 MPH. Large hail and isolated flash flooding are also possible. Timing looks to be after 2 PM and through the evening hours. You can view the latest severe weather outlooks on our website at texasstormchasers.com/severe. We'll have a detailed post out around 7 AM with the complete forecast details. ~David #txwx
Couple weeks ago station 83 was apart of the monthly training that is offered to all county departments. May was vehicle extrication training and a drill. Here are a few pics of 83 members in training.

The body of the fallen Grand Prairie police officer will soon be transported from Medical City Arlington to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office in Fort Worth. Expect heavy police and fire presence lining the highways as this fallen hero is escorted to the facility. Please be courteous of the procession.

A short clip of the front
Today was firefighter appreciation day and naming the facility RC McFall day hosted by Johnson County ESD. Also we received a sneak peak at one of the new Engines purchased for Station 82 Lillian.
Station 83 is also receiving the same Engine in a few weeks to better service our community. Thank you to the Board, and Director for the continued support of us and the County.
Tornado watch has been issued for our area....
Here it comes again
Texas Severe Weather Outlook for 5/29/19. We have our own chance at severe weather although ours is mostly a wind and hail threat the tornado threat is low at this time. Storms will be in moving in to the metroplex during the late afternoon and evening hours so this time it’s during the most unstable time. We will do some more checking on this in the morning.
Can we please take a minute and say a prayer with a thank you for giving the sacrifice that they did for us. Please be safe...
R.I.P. Captain. Our prayers to the family and brothers and sisters
Prayers for this true Warrior’s family, RIP Brother we will take it from here.
Thank you!!!! 🇺🇸
Tornado Watch until 5pm today...
Well, here we go again ... another Saturday, another squall line a comin'. Storms will line up to our west Saturday morning and sweep through the Metroplex during the mid to late morning into early afternoon bringing areas of heavy rain, pocket-change hail, and straightline winds. Then it will be the proverbial wait-and-see game to see if the atmosphere can recover to allow a second wave of storms by late afternoon and evening.
Usually the morning storms zap the energy out of the atmosphere and replace it with strong sinking air motions which would tend to squash any storm that tries to develop during the heat of the afternoon. But the atmosphere will become very unstable late Saturday afternoon, and thus IF the atmosphere can recover - and that is a BIG IF - the late afternoon/early evening storms would be far more intense than the morning activity.
But as we have often seen this spring, the atmosphere usually does not recover, and that would mean that the very unstable atmosphere that develops by late in the day means nothing, and we would enjoy a pleasant Saturday night.
It is too early to know whether the atmosphere will be able to recover.
Though this will be a near 100% coverage with the rain, it will NOT be a 100% coverage of SIGNIFICANT rain. Some areas will struggle to get a tenth of an inch, while others may see flash flooding as 2 inches fall in less than an hour!
Remember this week isn’t just about saying thank you, it’s remembering our Fallen. Our Hearts and Prayers still go out to the Hale Family. Public service is one big family forever strong.
Lance Cpl. Jonathan Hale tells the story of his hero, Richard Hale, a fallen police officer.

One thing we forgot and we are sorry for. This mornings accident... 8 different agencies responded too.
That was 7 different dispatching departments... 7 people had to tell the 2 different Ambulance companies , 2 different Fire departments , 2 different police departments and 2 different Medical helicopters... not counting tow trucks.
1 accident had total of 35 people to help. I may have missed a couple but it’s close. Thank you to all dispatchers again. This is your week..
One of our post received a lot of attention today. This was not our goal.
Our goal was to:
1 notified the public of a accident and the roadway closer on a major roadway in our district/Burleson for hours.
2. To highlight the awesome jobs of the crews, that so many were involved.
3. For people to slow down and pay attention.
We don’t determine cause or circumstance leading up to. We focus on rescue, treatment and closure to the scene. As many people, 4 of our firefighters on scene knew a person involved. We live, work, and volunteer in our community to make it safer.
Hope everyone had a safer weekend and it’s never good if our radio goes off.
