Fire crews are shoring up the remaining parts of the roof to make it safe to enter the store for investigation. The gas and water has been turned off to the store.

A partial roof collapse has occurred at a business on the NE corner of Park Blvd and Dallas North Tollway service road. A search has been complete and no people were in the building.

Both are important, but what's the difference?
"Yield Right-of-Way to Emergency Vehicles" can mean two different things. (https://www.dps.texas.gov/internetforms/forms/dL-7.pdf)
**One case applies when emergency vehicles are approaching you. That's when we ask you to: "Pull to the Right for Sirens and Lights!"
**One case applies when you are approaching emergency vehicles, roadside construction, and tow trucks. That's when you need to: "Move Over or Slow Down!"
With more and more cars on our roadways, this is a friendly reminder to stay alert and drive safely.

Plano Fire Training Center Set to Have One of First FARS Technology in Area

Plano Fire-Rescue is proud to announce that its new Fire Training Center will be built with a Firefighter Air Replenishment System (FARS), and will be one of the first fire training centers in the area to be equipped with this technology.
FARS are standpipes delivering breathing air, providing firefighters with a quick, safe, and effective means to refill their air bottles at filling stations located throughout a building. During emergency operations, having the ability to replenish air bottles within a building, and not have to leave the building to do so outside, saves time and energy that can be better spent in firefighting efforts. Basically, FARS deliver air replenishment when and where firefighters need air the most.
Plano was the first city in Texas to install FARS in new high-rise construction and approximately 25 high-rise buildings in Plano built since 2016 have FARS. Plano’s new Fire Training Center is one of the first in the area to be built with FARS. Being able to train on the system will better prepare Plano’s firefighters in the use of the systems in place.
The fully operational FARS has been provided to Plano Fire-Rescue for the new Fire Training Center at no cost by the Firefighter Air Coalition, an advocacy group dedicated to promoting firefighter safety through the use of air management best practices, advanced fireground research, and the adoption of codes requiring FARS.
“FARS is a game changer for the safety of firefighters and therefore, by extension, the general public. Water and air are the two biggest commodities that firefighters need to fight fire,” said Sam Greif, Plano Fire Chief. “The water issue was solved decades ago with standpipe systems. Now the air issue is resolved with FARS.”

Tuesday afternoon Plano Fire Chief Sam Greif, EMS Medical Director Dr. Mark Gamber, and the crew of Station 7C were honored to be a part of a bystander CPR recognition at Marriott at Legacy Town Center. Last month Loss Prevention Supervisor Efe Osawemwenze performed CPR on a guest until the firefighters’ arrival. Our personnel noted that his compressions were effective and when they took over care, Mr. Osawemwenze stepped back and took on the task of comforting the family member of the guest. Later, we found out this was not the first time Mr. Osawemwenze has responded and performed CPR on a guest at his workplace. Great work and thanks! #CPRsaveslives

Isolated Gas Leak Identified as Probable Cause of Plano House Explosion

Plano Fire-Rescue fire investigators have determined the probable cause of Monday’s house explosion to be an isolated gas leak within the home at 4429 Cleveland Drive.
At 4:40 pm, Plano’s 911 Dispatch received multiple calls reporting an explosion at a home with callers stating the home was “completely gone.” First arriving crews confirmed the one story home was entirely destroyed and a search group was formed to locate and rescue any persons within the rubble. One resident was found, extricated and transported to Medical City Plano.
The homes on both sides of the exploded home sustained extreme structural damage. Two adults from the home directly to the west were transported to Medical City Plano and three children were transported to Children’s Medical Center Plano. The lone resident of the home directly to the east was not injured.
Plano’s Fire Marshal states the explosion was most likely caused by a gas leak inside the house but further investigation will be necessary to determine exactly where the gas leak was located within the home. The extensive damage to the home will hinder these ongoing investigations. In addition, the Fire Marshal has emphasized that the leak was isolated to the home at 4429 Cleveland Drive and no other homes are in danger.
Plano Police Department, along with the ATF and FBI, were on scene early in the investigation and determined, with the assistance of an explosive detection canine, that there was no hazardous materials or explosives involved and the home was not a crime scene.

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
