Severe Weather Awareness
In Texas, our weather is unpredictable. What we can predict is that storms can arise in the blink of an eye. Remember that spring and fall storms can bring about tornadoes, hail, severe winds and flooding. Check out the NOAA website
for important information about many types of severe weather and how you can best prepare yourself and your family.
With summer fun come responsibilities and some dangers. Please be sure to keep yourself and your family safe. Respect the sun and keep your family protected from the heat, especially small children, the elderly, and pets. Check out WFR's safety education page for additional links regarding summertime safety.
Homeland Security Begins with Hometown Security
If you see something suspicious taking place, report that behavior or activity to local law enforcement or, in the case of emergency, call 9-1-1. Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. For that reason, the public should report only suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack in a public place or someone trying to break into a restricted area) rather than beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations, or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity. Only reports that document behavior reasonably indicative of criminal activity related to terrorism will be shared with federal partners.
