Good news for some. WC&ID #2 is working to get water fully restored.

We are aware that water mains throughout the city may have leaks. They are working on it.

When these situations happen, patience is sometimes short lived. We ask that you continue to support the efforts of WC&ID #2 workers. It’s not an easy task to restore but they are working hard.

Boil water order still in effect!

Rolling blackouts are still continuing through the greater Houston area and state. Make sure to keep an eye on large appliances that draw power when immediately plugged in such as a refrigerator. When the loss of power comes and goes sometimes the electrical surges can cause appliance motors to malfunction and or cause a malfunction of the outlet.

Again, practice good fire safety situational awareness. 

The fire departments hard working staff is still answering your calls. Tired, beat and battered, We strive to be the best even in these harsh weather conditions!

We are Stafford Strong!

Good morning Stafford residents. Last night was yet another busy night.

If you hold a handful of marbles, empty it on the floor and watch them roll around all over the place.... that was Stafford Fire Department.

We are still here serving you.

Often times most residents do not see us working in our element.

Here are a few pictures of our units on different scenes from this week. These were the few we had pictures of. 

Unfortunately these weren’t the only ones.

Maintain good situational awareness!

Always monitor heating devices. Make sure to check functionality of device/ appliance before running for long periods of time.

Do not use open flames to heat home, we know the possibilities exist, use extreme caution and know the consequences of those hazards. 

It’s going to be another night of cold temperatures.

Its been a very busy night for the fire department this evening, burst sprinklers and structure fires all night long. Today will warm up but it will be right back this evening so we aren't out of the woods yet. Please be careful and continue to exercise caution today and this evening. Protecting your people, pets, plants, and pipes. And be especially careful walking on concrete, there were plenty of people injured yesterday from falls on the ice. As always The Stafford Fire Department is ready at a moments notice to serve our community.

Another winter storm will impact our region 6PM tonight through 6AM Thursday with most of our region is under a winter storm warning. More information on the timing of freezing rain and snow can be found below.

🚨 BE AWARE 🚨 The roadways can be deceiving and look safe, but as snow melts it will turn to standing water on the road and once the sun goes down as it gets colder it will turn to ice. This is extremely dangerous! Please exercise caution and don’t travel on the roadways this evening unless absolutely necessary. Driving tonight will be worse than this morning.

All of HWY 59 looks like this, both north and south bound sides. The HWY and all roads are traveled less as the night goes on, the ice gets thicker, less traction and more dangerous. Stay home, travel feeder roads if necessary. Highly recommended that you don’t drive and stay home where it’s warm!

We hope that this post founds you all well and warm!

We cannot not stress enough about this weather being a recording breaking event.

Practice fire safety, wrap your pipes, bring pets and plants inside, prepare people who cannot help themselves and get them taken care of. Now is the time if you have not done so already.

Risk of hypothermia for anyone outside who is not dressed properly.

Periods of light rain and drizzle through Sunday, then heavier snow, sleet, and freezing rain Sunday night and Monday. Patches of freezing drizzle possible tonight and Sunday for far West and Northwest Harris.

Bitter cold Sunday night and Tuesday.

Another winter storm possible on Wednesday although could be be more rain for southern zones.

More rain or possibly ice with another storm on Wednesday. It will depend on how quickly temperatures recover.

Again, we recommend no unnecessary travel during this time period of freezing beginning Sunday evening.

🚨 ❄ Winter Weather Alert ❄ 🚨
The City of Stafford’s Office of Emergency Management is working with Stafford Fire Department and Stafford Public Works on plans to mitigate the hazards associated with the freezing temperatures forecasted. When the temperatures drop below freezing, residents are encouraged to prepare their homes to avoid damage to water pipes, sprinkler systems, and swimming pools. Residents should follow the four “P’s” of winter weather safety: People, Pets, Plants and Pipes!

PEOPLE: Keep your family warm and check on any elderly family or neighbors that may need extra blankets, help winterizing their homes or a warm place to stay. Dress in layers; gloves and hats will help prevent losing your body heat. Avoid outdoor activities if possible. Walk carefully on snowy or icy walkways. Always keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Drive only if it is absolutely necessary. On icy roads, drive slowly and increase distance required for stopping.

PETS: Dogs and cats get cold, too. Bring pets indoors. If they can’t come inside, make sure they have enough shelter to keep them warm. Use a heat lamp if possible, but use with caution. Heat lamps can become a fire hazard if placed too closely to a flammable object such as hay or bedding. Keep adequate food and water available. Make sure their water is fresh and not frozen.

PLANTS: Cover delicate plants to keep them warm at night. Bring potted plants inside or store in a garage near an interior wall to provide extra warmth and protection from the cold and wind.

PIPES: Wrap exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks. The most common places for water to freeze are areas where water pipes are closest to outside exterior walls. This could be where the water service enters the building, or where water pipes connect to sinks adjacent to exterior walls. Locate the main water shut-off valve to your house now so you can easily find it and cut off water in the event a pipe should burst. If a pipe does burst, call a plumber to repair the water pipe. Disconnect outdoor hoses, then drain and store them in a protected area. Open the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing, but be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals out of the reach of children. Keep garage doors closed if there are water lines in the garage. Don't forget about your sprinkler systems and pools, too!

The Stafford Fire Marshals office wishes to remind those who might be using a space heater or a fireplace to keep warm this winter to use safe practices. Remember the three feet rule. If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep any flammables (paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs) a minimum of three feet away and always use with supervision. Also, never store flammable liquids or gas cylinders near or around heaters. Turn off space heaters before leaving the room or going to bed. If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks or rolling logs. Use generators outside only and never operate a generator inside the home, including in a garage. Do not hook up a generator to the home's wiring. The safest thing to do is connect the equipment you want to power directly to the outlets on the generator.

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact our offices or look on the City of Stafford webpage at staffordtx.gov for more information.
