Plano Emergency Management

The Plano Overnight Warming Station (POWS) provides short-term emergency housing to those in our community who would otherwise be sleeping outside during freezing/inclement weather. Specifically, POWS will open when the weather forecast includes a standing temperature of 32 degrees or a temperature of 40 degrees along with a 50% chance of precipitation. The weather forecast for tonight meets those conditions. As a result, The POWS will be open tonight.

The POWS is located at 3528 14th St. in Plano at The Salvation Army. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
To contact someone at the POWS, please call 214-988-9434. Press “0” to be connected to a representative. If you have trouble reaching someone at POWS during their hours of operation, please let us know.

POWS makes their decision whether or not to open every day. That decision is posted on their website:
http://pows.collincares.org/menu.php

Transportation To/From POWS:
On night that POWS is activated, they have a shuttle that stops at three designated locations between the hours of 6:30 pm & 9:00 p.m.

These locations are:
1) Harrington Library (18th/P Avenue) – Shuttle scheduled to arrive at 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

2) DART (Parker Rd) Station – Shuttle scheduled to arrive at 6:40 pm, 7:40 p.m. & 8:40 p.m.

After 8:30 p.m., anyone in Plano that needs to get to the facility would have to be transported by alternate means. Nobody will be admitted to POWS after 10:30 p.m. unless they are accompanied by Plano Police or Plano Fire-Rescue personnel.

Collin County, TX got called out today on local news for pretending we don’t have Covid cases and not reporting while the counties around us (Dallas, Tarrant, Denton) continue to report high numbers. Plano, please do your own reporting again.
When will the street lights in the medians on Midway and Spring Creek be turned back on? The lights have been out for over a year and there is no construction activity in the area. They are also out on Spring Creek between Midway and the Tollway.
Wanted to give a big shout to some of the hard-working Plano team members. A rather cool morning with a blanket of frost everywhere to be working with water but it sounded like they had smiles on their faces because they were practicing social distancing and wearing masks! Thank you!!
Are we in a purple zone
Hello, why there is no COViD-19 statistics updated daily? The one on the Plano’s website depicted 4 new cases for few days, press releases stopped 09/10. Number of deaths could not be found. I live in Plano and want to know situation in my city. Thank you, Henry
Why did the new just announce that Collin County is no longer sharing Covid-19 information?
Why is my water bill so expensive? Are you actively working on anything in regards to the communities water costs?
Just wanted to say we spent the last few days stuck in plano for a family medical emergency and every place we went was nice, clean, friendly, and knowledgeable. It was very refreshing and appreciated. Keep up the work plano as a city you've got us thinking that a bigger town might not be so bad.
City of Plano - Sanitation. Thank you & Kudos to this team on the recycling truck today. our cans were pretty full, one of them had a few items fall out when being dumped. Instead of leaving the trash there they jumped out, picked it all up and then redumped the can. I cant tell you enough how truly appreciative I am of this. Not many people go above and beyond these days....thought they deserved some Kudos - so again, thank you for a job well done :-)
Tax dollars in Plano at work. This is why it take forever to get these constitution projects done. Because this is the level of professionalism that our tax dollars buys. Shame on the city of Plano for allowing our lawns to be used as sun lounging spots for endless construction all over the city. GET TO F'EN WORK. I have to do my job to pay my taxes, so I don't think its unreasonable for contractors payed by my taxes to do their jobs. At the very least, not use my lawn to lounge or take a nap. Shame. SHAME
I have been looking for information on the early voting tomorrow Where can I find location and most important ly what has been done to keep voters safe like plexiglass ,etc Thanks Carole
