Texoma Fire District: Dry conditions warning for week ahead


Here it is June and we have temperatures in the 90s. Everything is drying out and the risk for fires is increasing.

If you decide the burn on your property, please notify the Sheriff’s office and Chief Todd Cissell that you are doing a controlled burn, have a water hose handy, and do not leave it unattended. A fire can get away from you in no time at all and wipe out everything in its path.

Also remember, snakes hiding under garbage and piles of leaves and branches.

There is still a need for more volunteers. All adults, male or female, interested in joining the Texoma Volunteer Fire Department, please contact Chief Todd Cissell at (580) 565-4491 or pickup an application from the mailbox at the station, fill it out and return to the station. Chief Cissell will contact you. Everyone is welcome, so consider joining the fire department truly needs your support.

The Ladies Auxiliary meeting will not be held until further notice. Also the Ice Cream social scheduled in July has been cancelled.

On Wednesday evenings from 5 to 6pm Lighthouse United Methodist Church will start back their “No Strings Attached” meals, however, there will be some important changes. You will be able to drive thru the Church parking lot and pickup your meals. Please STAY IN YOUR VEHICLES, do not get out, your meals will be brought to you from 5pm to 6pm.

Thank you and everyone stay safe!
