Hurricane Preparations: When a hurricane threatens your area, evacuating is the smartest move. Know where your family will go when evacuation orders are posted. Do not ride out a hurricane in a car. Do not take risks that would place your or your family in danger.

The American Red Cross is responsible for providing shelters; however, no Red Cross shelters will be provided in Dewitt County for  hurricane evacuees. People needing shelter will most likely be directed to Red Cross shelters in San Antonio.
People needing transportation to shelters should register now by calling 211.

Flood Plain: The DeWitt County Flood Damage Prevention Court Order is available on the county's website. Any violation of the court order could result in a fine up to $500 per day. Contact the Flood Plain Administrator for permits. 

Pipeline Safety: Pipelines and other underground utility lines crisscross our yards, neighborhoods and community. Because we can't see them, we seldom think about their location, potential hazards and tips for keeping the safe. Visit the Texas Pipeline Awareness Alliance website to learn more about the pipelines near your home or business. Access information in Spanish.

Texas 811 Damage Prevention Call before you dig.  Every project that involves digging needs to be located before ground is broken.  When anyone digs in Texas, whether planting a tree or digging the foundation of a skyscraper, there is a high probability of an underground utility line being within the site.  This is a free service.  Contact Texas 811 for more information.

NOAA Weather Radio is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information direct from a nearby National Weather  Service office. NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts National Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day 7 days a week. NOAA Weather Radio also broadcasts warnings and post-event information for all types of hazards- both natural and environmental. During an emergency, National Weather Service forecasters will interrupt routine weather programming and send out the special tone that activates weather radios in the listening area.

Who Needs NOAA Weather Radio? Public safety experts agree: the receivers should be standard equipment in every home. They are especially valuable in places that are entrusted with public safety, including hospitals, schools and places of worship, nursing homes, restaurants, grocery stores, recreation centers, office buildings, sports facilities, theaters, retail stores, and other public gathering places.
