Texoma Fire District: Next Highway Cleanup Scheduled Nov. 3, Smoke Detectors Still Available

By Paula Zimmerman

Wow, do you think we have had enough rain? People are getting stuck all over the county, in yards, on the shoulder of the roads, and down in ditches.

This will continue for a few days, so think before you drive off into the yard or a ditch.

Texoma Fire District: New Schedules are Out, Mark Your Calendars

By Paula Zimmerman

There will be sunshine for a couple of days, such a nice break from all the rain. Just remember even though we have gotten a lot of rain, and more to come, fires can still get out of hand very quickly. The burn ban is off, but if you do a control burn, please call it in to the sheriff's office.

This saves us from having to make a trip out for nothing. If the control burn gets out of hand, remember to always call 911. Right now everyone is concerned about all the flooding, so again, watch the roads and be careful.

The Texoma Fire Department will be doing the highway cleanup this Saturday, March 3. We will meet at 8 a.m. at the fire station and will pick up trash from Parkview Road to Alberta Creek Road.
