Don't overdo the holiday lights

Don't overdo it on the lights! We all love those holiday lights, but you may have to scale back depending on your outlets. Check the lights' packaging for the power output and never plug in more than what a power strip or outlet says it can handle. #holidaysafety #firesafety

11/30/2020

The city's Hazard Mitigation Plans help us to better understand the natural hazards that pose a threat to the area and to develop actions that reduce the risk associated with these hazards. Part of the update process includes review and approval from the Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Their approval allows the city to be eligible for Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant funding.

As part of the update process we need to hear from you. We've developed a survey to help gauge local household and business preparedness for disasters. Information you provide will help us identify actions that would reduce risk and loss from natural hazards. All responses are anonymous. Take the survey: mckinneytexas.org/mitigation

We are at Mack Hill park right now off Westridge and independence, and my daughter just cut herself on this slide. It has a bolt that is sticking straight up at the bottom of the slide, who does one speak to to address something like this?
*NOTE: Best experienced on Chrome or Firefox! Safari likes to turn it into a virtual earthquake.* Hey y’all! I wanted to share this project throughout the community for all those who may be interested. In May I began talking to 20 seniors from McKinney High School (where I graduated from in what feels like ages ago) to gather bits and pieces of their one-of-a-kind high school experience amidst a pandemic. They shared their challenges, memories, and hopes for what’s to come. This group of graduates reinforces that their generation is one to get excited about: their resolve is unwavering, and I look forward to the future and what they’ll make of it!
McKinney is truly"Unique by Nature" . McKinney citizens care about their neighbors. It's wonderful to see the many people wearing masks. A mask today will keep our businesses open now AND in the months to come. Keep up the good work mask wearers!!!
I loving living in McKinney, we live of Eldorado Blvd. The people in our number are willing to help people when they reach out to us. Check out my website lovingyourlifestyle.com we have amazing deals.

I understand that there is work that has to be done but this combustion during the day on 380 is absolutely ridiculous and extremely frustrating
Can someone please share any information about drive through Covid 19 testing in McKinney? I have exhausted too MANY google searches and I’m almost to the point of crying or breaking my phone ... please share your wealth of knowledge with us
Where is there a drive through Covid test in McKinney? Please and thank you 🙏
Citizens of McKinney want to "KEEP THE MASKS" We all have an obligation to help keep our community safe. Keep our Covid numbers down by wearing your mask. They have been proven to help! Not wearing masks can cost lives.
Pretty crappy you go to an event and someone throws their empties in your jeep. What kinda trash does that! Where are the cops? McKinney is no longer safe just trash!
