MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
We didn't have to wait long for summer heat this year. In fact, we didn't even have to wait for summer! As El Niño dissipated and flood waters receded, June temperatures rose.
HEAT RELATED ILLNESSES CAN BE DEADLY
According to the National Weather Service, approximately 270 people have died in the United States over the last three years due to heat-related illnesses. The majority of those cases involved children and seniors.
BASTROP COUNTY LONG TERM RECOVERY TEAM
The Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team (BCLTRT) was born out of the ashes of the 2011 Bastrop County Complex Fire. The most destructive wildfire in Texas history, the Bastrop County Complex Fire destroyed 1,691 homes.
