MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Though many areas in Central and East Texas have welcomed rain, other areas have seen very little and the threat for wildfires still remains. It is critically important that we remind all Texans of the need for fire safety, whether they reside in rural communities or live in suburbs on the edges of our urban communities.

AGENCY PARTNER: TEXAS PUBLIC WORKS RESPONSE TEAM
Hurricanes. Floods. Wildfires. Whether natural or manmade, our state gets its share of Texas-sized disasters. To handle the infrastructure damage they cause, you need a Texas-sized response – the Texas Public Works Response Team (PWRT).
