Fire Safety & Prevention Presentations
The Lucas Fire-Rescue would love to come speak with your organization about fire safety and prevention. If you would like to set up an appointment to have members from Lucas Fire-Rescue come present the latest information on fire safety and prevention please e-mail [email protected] or call 972-727-1242.
In January 2013 the City of Lucas became the 55th Firewise Community in the State of Texas.
The Firewise Communities USA program educates citizens on steps they can take to harden their homes and to create a defensible space that could help save their property in the event of an Urban Wildland Fire. Learn how you can implement Firewise principles on your property, such as home hardening and landscaping techniques, by attending a Firewise workshop and/or Firewise Landscape seminar.
To maintain Firewise Community status, we must invest at least $2.00 per capita in Firewise projects per year. Please fill out the Firewise form and submit to the Lucas Fire Rescue by the end of September of each year. The information you provide will be used by Lucas Fire Rescue only to determine the amount of hours and costs that residents have contributed to the Firewise projects.
READY – Now is the time to prepare your Wildfire Action Plan. Create a Family Emergency Disaster Plan that includes a meeting place and a communications plan. Include children and elderly family members in your planning. If you have pets and/or livestock, create an Emergency Disaster kit and evacuation plan for them, as well.
SET – Do not become a victim of a wildfire. Have your plans in place so when the evacuation order is given, you are ready at a moment’s notice. Stay aware of the wildfire risk for Lucas; monitor the radio/TV, weather radio and social media for updates on changing conditions.
GO! – Go early! Remember, nothing you own is worth your or your family members’ lives. For more information click here.
