PFR, along with our friends at Allen Fire Department and McKinney Fire Department, will be conducting a prescribed fire at Plano’s Oak Point Park Friday, February 5 starting at 1:00 pm.
Why a prescribed fire? We do this to get control of invasive plant species, reduce the fuel load, and open the soil for native grass regeneration. It’s also a great opportunity for our wildland firefighters to train.
A final Go/No Go for the prescribed fire will be determined Friday morning based on weather conditions, available fuels, fire behavior predictions, and, most importantly, smoke management concerns.

COVID Vaccine Update | January 29

This morning, Collin County announced thousands more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are headed to Collin County in the coming days. Two more local vaccine hubs are also set to begin operations soon.

The Department of State Health Services notified Collin County health officials that 42,900 doses of vaccine have been earmarked for Collin County providers for next week’s vaccination efforts. This is the single largest shipment sent to the County by the state since the vaccination program began in late December.

Meanwhile, Texas Health Resources and the City of Frisco plan to open new vaccine hubs in Collin County within the coming days. They will vaccinate people in Phase 1A and 1B categories from Collin County’s COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist.

Officials with Baylor Scott & White Health have notified county officials that they, too, will begin using the County waitlist. This brings the total number of COVID-19 vaccine hubs working from the Collin County Vaccine Waitlist to five.

A total of six vaccine hubs, operating by appointment only, will be open in Collin County beginning next week:
-Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS) - Plano ISD's
John Clark Stadium
-City of Frisco - Site to be determined, opening soon
-City of Allen - Allen ISD football stadium
-City of McKinney - McKinney ISD football stadium
-Texas Health Resources - Sam Johnson Recreation Center in
Plano, opening soon
-Baylor Scott & White Health (BSW) - BSW facility in Frisco

The hub providers using the Collin County Vaccine Waitlist are currently serving individuals with waitlist numbers up to 8,000. Those registered will be contacted directly from information on file with Collin County when their vaccine is available. All six locations will be operating by appointment only. Collin County officials expect significant progress to be made on the waitlist next week.

Read the full news release from Collin County here: https://www.collincountytx.gov/public_information/news/Pages/vaccinehubsdosesincrease.aspx.

Important Reminders:
The waitlist is open to all Texans who are eligible according to the DSHS Phase 1A and Phase 1B definitions. Join the Collin County waitlist: share.plano.gov/CollinCountyWaitList.

Texas' DSHS advises that the vaccine will not be readily available for the general public until late spring or early summer 2021. Visit the Texas DSHS COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations map share.plano.gov/VaccineMap to find nearby providers who have received the vaccine, or visit the Collin County website share.plano.gov/CollinCountyVaccineInformation for additional updates as they become available.

If you would like to be removed from the Collin County waitlist because you received a vaccine from another source or for any other reason, email [email protected] stating you would like to be removed. Please remember to include: first and last name, date of birth, phone number and email provided during registration.

From everyone at Plano Fire-Rescue, we wish you and yours a healthy and happy holiday season!
You may have noticed that several of our firehouses have been decorated for the holiday season. Which one do you think looks best? Vote for your favorite by liking their picture.
For those of you wondering, the decorations are purchased by the crews at the station, not the city. This is just one way crews at each station exhibit station pride and ownership.

This week Station 7 crews attended the first of several trainings as we prepare to put the new "Quint 7" in service. There are still some "make ready" items that need to be completed before the new Quint 7 goes in service - this training being one of those things. Be looking for an upcoming Facebook post that provides all the specs for the new Quint 7.

Christmas tree fire: watered tree vs. dry tree

We've been reminding you about keeping your live Christmas tree watered. Here's a great visual that shows just how quickly a dry tree can turn deadly.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more than 200 home fires each year start with a Christmas tree. In this video, NIST fire researchers demonstrate what could happen if a fire starts in a watered Christmas tree vs. a dry Christmas tree. For Christmas tree safety tips, visi...

Our crews are at a working structure fire at a two-story office building in the 6100 block of Tennyson Parkway. Initial call was for a second alarm but those crews have been released. First arriving crews found all people out of the building and the fire extinguishing system going off. A small explosion blew out a window on second floor. No reports of injuries and crews entered the building to find no fire to extinguish. The building is being ventilated and a fire investigator is on scene.

There is a lot of activity on the NW side of the intersection at Jupiter Road and Plano Parkway. A gasoline leak was detected yesterday and our HazMat and Truck 4 have been on scene monitoring the underground leak. Private environmental clean up company Protect Environmental is there working on getting the leaked gasoline mitigated. One lane is closed but no major traffic issues are expected.

I just wanted to share and thank the brave #PlanoFireDepartment team! They showed up in less than a minute with great response!
There's a fire alarm going off at (IMC powered by Parts Authority 2601 Resource Dr #100, Plano, TX 75074) it's been going off for half an hour and no one's done anything about it not only is the fire alarm going off but there's some sort of other alarm going off as well It's really loud and I'm all the way on the other side
We had a kitchen fire a long time ago and know how quickly it can spread. Thanks for the opportunity to share the #1 cause of house fires with our Plano kid !
Please share and ask your friends to share this I was going out to run an errand early before the heat of the day . As I approached my apartment gate to leave I saw two cars that had just been in a horrible accident !!! One of the cars was flipped upside down and the person was still trapped and at this point the police nor the ambulance had arrived yet What I witnessed instead was strangers coming together that witnessed it while driving by and the hero’s at Barksdale Elementary School that we’re outside all jumped in and helped There was a person in the street helping to direct traffic , folks were taking to the person in the flipped car trying to do what they could tell the paramedics and all came My heart was aching for the person in the car but it was so wonderful seeing all these folks helping I also of course must commend the Plano police , Plano fire and rescue for their quick actions to get the person out safely I could not even leave till I knew the person was ok and turn they blocked the entrance any way Once they got her out the officer said they would let me out and I said it was ok I just wanted to make sure they were ok and all He wanted to make sure I was ok and all as I think he knew I was heartbroken I thanked him for all that they do and I said I hope the person was ok The good news is they were alert and moving Thanks again to all the incredible strangers that stopped to help . Please share and I’d love for some of the Barksdale folks to see this
Thank you guys. Looking for mobile Covid19 testing for my GMa
A gentle reminder on behalf of the US Census.
On behalf of the US Census, happy 4th of July and thank you for your service.
On behalf of the US Census, a gentle reminder.
With the spike of Covid 19 cases here in Texas over the past few weeks I was surprised to see these two firemen not wearing masks in a store full of people at Kroger yesterday. It was about 11:30am in the Kroger at Custer and Parker, and the store was packed with elderly shoppers. There were only 4 people in the crowded store not wearing masks, and these gentlemen were 2 of the 4. My concern is not only for the fellow shoppers, but for these firefighters as well.
Happy belated Father's Day from the US Census.
On behalf of the US Census. $22.50/hr
Very thankful for Plano Fire Engine 11 tonight who responded to my accident scene. Not only did they make sure I was okay, they were checking on my girl and making sure she was okay. Thank you
