State Of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry

Do you or anyone you know need some assistance during times of an emergency event? The state of Texas presents the STEAR program. The STEAR program is a free registry that provides local emergency planners and emergency responders with additional information on the needs in their community. Texas communities use the registry information in different ways. Registering yourself in the STEAR registry DOES NOT guarantee that you will receive a specific service during an emergency. Available services will vary by community.

Preparing for Winter Weather

Enjoy the weather, But Stay Safe this Winter! 

As winter approaches, take a moment to consider a few important safety reminders.

Texas winters are known for their unpredictable weather, so be mindful of the extreme temperatures. Make sure to stay hydrated and seek shelter when needed. It's always wise to wear layers, hats and gloves to keep warm.

Frostbite versus Hypothermia


Additionally, Frostbite and Hypothermia can lead to exhaustion and numbness if proper precautions aren't taken. Look out for signs such as shivering, confusion, redness of the skin and exhaustion. If you or someone around you experiences these symptoms, immediately move to a warm area, drink plenty of water, and seek medical help if necessary.

When it comes to outdoor winter activities, be aware of potential risks and practice cold weather safety. Remember, a moment of distraction can have serious consequences.
