Homeland Security and Emergency Management

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



Spring is the perfect time to check smoke detectors and change Your Batteries!                                                                         

Spring Time-The Perfect Time to Change Smoke Detector Batteries!  


The Fire Department wants to remind everyone that this is the perfect time to replace the batteries (preferably an alkaline type) in your smoke detectors to make sure they remain in working condition. Consider replacing devices that are older than 10 years old

Families should also have an escape plan with a meeting place, outside of the home, in case of fire. Remember to practice your plan!
