HOW TO REPORT A FIRE

  1. Go to a safe phone, away from the smoke and fire.  If you wake up inside a house on fire, first shout and get out, second go to your meeting place (such as a neighbor’s porch), and third call 9-1-1.
  2. Say that there’s a fire.
  3. Say the address of the fire.  If the fire is at a neighbor’s house and you don’t know the address, give them your own address.
  4. Give your name and phone number.
  5. Stay calm and speak clearly.
  6. Stay on the phone.

CLEARLY MARKED ADDRESSES

Proper addressing will assist your fire department in promptly dealing with your emergencies.

  • Paint 4-inch numbers on the mailbox in front of your home.
  • Place numbers that are at least 4 inches tall near the front entrance (or a location easily visible from the street) in a color contrasted by the color of your home.

WHAT TO DO WHEN LIGHTS AND SIRENS APPROACH

HERE IS WHAT WE SHOULD DO:

  • When you are in the right lane, pull onto the right shoulder if there is room and stop or at least slow way down if you are on an open high-speed road.
  • When you are in the left lane and traffic in the right lane is moving onto the shoulder, move right into their lane.
  • If you cannot go right because of an obstacle, the next best thing is to stop.  The driver of an emergency vehicle can then anticipate where to move his vehicle. 
  • When you are at an intersection with a stop sign or red light and a response vehicle is coming up behind you, stay where you are if you cannot pull to the right.
  • If you are on a one-way street, pulling to the right is still best, but sometimes, due to traffic, you may pull to the left curb and yield the middle lane(s).

DO NOT:

  • Drive through a red light or stop sign when an emergency vehicle approaches from behind.
  • Make a left turn quickly to a driveway or street.
  • Race ahead to get through a green light or turn before the response vehicle gets there.
  • Disregard and continue to travel despite the response vehicle.

SMOKE DETECTOR SAFETY TIPS

  • Install a smoke detector on each level of your home.
  • Never remove a good battery or otherwise disable the detectors.
  • Know what to do after a detector sounds off.
  • Plan a home escape route in the event of a fire.

GENERAL SAFETY TIPS

    If you stop on the side of a road, dim your bright lights!  Oncoming traffic can be blinded and wander over the highway.

    Texas Driver's License showing roadside assistance phone number Look at the lower left hand corner on the reverse side of your Texas State Driver's
    License and read the info above the UPC code. Most people do not realize that you can dial that number and a state patrolman will come
    to your assistance. This is paid for with your tax money. It is a 24 hour service.
