🚨🦺🚨 SAFETY TIP 🦺🚨🦺
Following this procedure will help everyone stay safer: involved parties, passersby, and responders👍

Staying in the roadway while waiting for officers puts you and the other drivers in danger. If it is possible, decide where you will both go and move off the roadway to a safe location to wait for the officers to respond. Officers do not assign blame for accidents, so moving won't cause an issue, but it will help keep you all safe.

This will be a cool/fun thing to watch for🔭📷
We can't wait for the October weather either!!

An annular solar eclipse will pass through Texas on October 14, just 6 months before a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024! During an annular eclipse, the sun forms a “ring of fire” around the moon as the moon’s shadow obscures the sun and the moon appears slightly smaller than the sun.

Daylight will dim significantly during the annular eclipse, though not as dark as the total eclipse. Those lucky enough to be in the path of totality will see the dramatic view for nearly 5 minutes. Eye protection must be worn at all times when viewing the eclipse!

As you prepare to travel and watch this rare and exciting lunar event, remember to recreate responsibly and avoid sparking a wildfire. Check for local outdoor fire restrictions and elevated fire weather conditions. If a wildfire occurs, the smoke may prevent everyone around you from seeing the eclipse.

Hard work, earning, and providing... To all of those who labor to make America the greatest county in the world, Happy Labor Day!!
History: Observed the first Monday in September, Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century, when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being.

Just before 3pm this afternoon, Plano and Murphy Fire Department were called to a house fire with concerns of someone inside.
Thankfully NO ONE was inside!!!
Due to the intense heat of this Texas August, Command did call for a 2nd alarm to have the personnel resources for a safe rotation of working crews.
A combination of interior hose lines on the fire, and some exterior hoses protecting the neighboring homes brought this incident under control with no injuries.
We are grateful to the neighbors who brought cold, fresh fruit to our crews rehab'ing between assignments.

Featured 10:30 into https://youtu.be/NVRmPZNQTKc : A home state video: Texas. Using as many different web pages as found, images were used in the order found on their sites. That’s because I wanted variety, not just the biggest cities. As for the music, the three songs omitted had their own videos and thus stood out on their own. The opening song to this is one of my favorite, so I used it to start out.
As for the time, I used the year following Eliminator’s release. It does seem that 1984 was still that album’s era as ZZ were filming music videos. But I like it- ’84 feels like the transition from Eliminator into Afterburner. It also seems singles continued not one, but two years after. Being that (some) record seems to reflect their first album to go to #1, their tour lasted two years as well. Therefore, I featured 1984 through ’87 for the most middle of the 80’s, like the music was. Please note that search engines can be inaccurate and images can be mistagged with the wrong year.
I had always wanted to do something at least with the “Stages” track, but couldn’t figure back in that earlier time, what images/theme, I’d present. Then I knew that since Texas was such a big state, adding on more than one year had me figure out that this would extend beyond one song. Also, the entire album was consistent, so I wanted to feature some of the lesser known tracks as well.
To sum it up, I like this, but am saddened to say that my drive for this was due to The Duster’s passing. I wish he were still alive rather than me just creating this. I suppose I would have decided to do this eventually, but the truth is, when I heard the news, my heart and mind were just racing. I just couldn’t believe it. So finally, rest in peace, Joe Michael. Thank you for your musical contributions into this world.
Hi TCN family! We are sitting at 192 blankets and 212 stuffies. Our Goal was 100 each but the response has been soooo amazing!

Congratulations and appreciation to the new Chief of Plano Fire-Rescue,
Chris Biggerstaff Named New Plano Fire-Rescue Chief
For the first time in recent history, the City of Plano has appointed an internal candidate to the position of fire chief. Chris Biggerstaff, who currently serves Plano Fire-Rescue as Assistant Chief of Emergency Services, will assume the duties of chief beginning December 20. City Council will ratify the appointment at their next meeting on December 13.

Chief Biggerstaff joined the fire service on March 4, 1991, with the Garland Fire Department. On December 28, 1992, he continued his career as a firefighter at Plano Fire-Rescue, where he was awarded Rookie of the Year in 1993 and Officer of the Year in 2013. He has served the residents of Plano in every rank up to his current position.

“Plano Fire Rescue will continue to define Excellence in the Fire service,” said City Manager Mark Israelson. “The Chief sets the tone and vision for the Department and we are excited that the best candidate to be the next Fire Chief in Plano was developed through the PFR ranks. Chris Biggerstaff is uniquely qualified to take the role as Chief and we have great expectations that he will keep PFR as the model Fire Department into the future.”

Biggerstaff holds an Associate in Arts and Science from Mountain View College, a Bachelor in Organizational Leadership from Texas A&M Commerce, and a Master in Leadership with an Emphasis in Disaster Preparedness and Executive Fire Leadership from Grand Canyon University. He is also a graduate of the National Fire Academy’s Executive Fire Officer Program.

Biggerstaff will replace current Fire Chief Sam Greif, who recently moved to the Plano Municipal Center to assume responsibilities as Deputy City Manager over public safety, which includes fire-rescue, police, public safety communications, emergency management and animal services.
Strong work by our brothers in red at Plano Fire-Rescue!
Welcome to the neighborhood! We were delighted to participate in this morning ‘s ribbon cutting of the American Red Cross second North Texas blood and platelet donation center in Plano. We were especially honored that Chief Operation Officer Christina Mathis was chosen to speak alongside City of Plano, Texas Government's Mayor John Muns , Plano Fire-Rescue Chief Sam Greif, Plano Texas Police Department Chief Ed Drane and Keith Rhodes, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross and many other leaders from the Plano community.

As Collin County’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, having readily available blood products are essential to providing high-quality, lifesaving care.

· Blood products are vital to many of our patients including trauma patients, cancer patients, mothers giving birth and premature babies, among others.

· There is no substitute for blood. When one of our patients receives blood, it is because it was given by a generous donor. And during this pandemic, blood supplies have been stretched thin and supplies are at an all-time low.

Please schedule an appointment to donate at redcrossblood.org, or call 1-800-RED CROSS. You can also schedule an appointment by downloading the free Red Cross 'Blood Donor' app.
Reminder to "Fall Back" for daylight saving time tomorrow! And take this as your reminder from Plano Fire-Rescue to change the batteries in your smoke alarms while you change your clocks.
Plano Fire-Rescue Chief Sam Greif named Deputy City Manager

Plano City Manager Mark Israelson has named Sam Greif Deputy City Manager. Greif, who currently serves as fire chief, will assume responsibility for public safety, which includes fire-rescue, police, public safety communications, emergency management and animal services.

Greif is a dynamic, knowledgeable professional with a proven track record of leadership. Before he started serving as Plano fire chief in 2015, he spent 30 years with the Fort Worth Fire Department, in many roles including deputy chief, operations, operations battalion chief, support services chief and fire communications chief. He has a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Texas Arlington.

He begins his new role in January when Deputy City Manager Greg Rushin retires from the position. Rushin’s background was also in public safety. He served as Plano’s police chief before taking on the deputy city manager position in September 2019.
In honor of National First Responders Day on October 28, Rice Middle School honored Plano Fire-Rescue, Plano Texas Police Department, and Plano 911. Nicely done!
