Texoma Fire District: Windy days ahead


The next few days are going to be windy, so be careful when cleaning your yards and houses. Do not do any burning. Last week, our firefighters had a grass fire to battle and those fires can get away from you in no time at all. Also, watch your chains on trailers, and anything else that can produce a spark and start a fire.

I would like to remind everyone riding golf carts, ATV’s, motorcycles, and other recreational vehicles there are signs on Washita Point Road regarding speed limits and driving requirements. There have been several golf carts seen with individuals riding standing on the back of the cart. This is extremely dangerous.

Another reminder, the May Mexican Pile-on previously scheduled in May has been canceled.

Thursday, May 7 at 6:30 p.m., the TFD Board meeting will be held at the Training Center.

We are still looking for people interested in joining the Texoma Volunteer Fire Department, please contact Chief Todd Cissell at (580) 565-4491. Everyone is welcome, men and women.

Without the volunteers to protect our homes out here in the country we wouldn’t have any protection at all. So, think about your families and properties protection. The fire department truly needs your support.

On Wednesday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the 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 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Thank you and everyone stay safe.
