If you or someone you know is having a stroke, be sure to act F.A.S.T. Some common symptoms are Face, Arm, and Speech. Every second counts. Call 9-1-1 or text 9-1-1 (if available in your area) in case of a medical emergency. Do not worry about going to the hospital—they are ready to help.

If you plan to give your old phone to children, be aware that deactivated cell phones can still call 9-1-1.This leads to accidental calls to 9-1-1 which ties up emergency resources. If 9-1-1 is called by mistake, tell the 9-1-1 calltaker instead of hanging up.
Welcome back to school! Have an amazing school year!
School may look a little different this year but the safety emergency lessons are still the same. It is important that kids of all ages know what to do in an emergency.

Good Safety information from @BrazoriaCounty
Power outages are expected during the form. Be sure to prepare. 9-1-1 should ONLY be called for REAL emergencies, not to report power outages. #HurricaneLaura
During power outages, avoid carrying a lit candle. Never use a candle when searching for items in a confined space. Use a flashlight instead!
9-1-1 is for emergencies only. Non-emergency calls can delay citizens with REAL life-threatening emergencies from getting the response they need. It is best to stay informed by local authorities and media for weather, flooding and traffic updates.
