Homeland Security and Emergency Management

Be Ready, Round Rock! Remember heat safety tips as triple digits continue.

WILLIAMSON COUNTY ISSUES EMERGENCY BURN BAN –Outdoor burning is currently prohibited in Round Rock due to a county-wide burn ban in effect.

With triple digit heat here already, it is important to know how to keep safe this summer. Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the U.S.

Know the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion-stay hydrated and watch those around you who may be children, elderly, mobility impaired or a family pet.

Remember these tips:

  • NEVER leave your child in a hot car
  • If you have elderly family or neighbors, check on them to help keep them safe
  • Do not leave your pets in the car or outside for long periods of time and make sure they have water
