Texas Wildfire Threat

Due to the extreme threat of wildfires across Texas, both Denton and Tarrant Counties have been put under Burn Bans.  Also, much of the area has been under Red Flag Warnings through the weekend.  Southlake DPS Fire Services asks that all residents and businesses be aware of the increased threat during this extremely dry weather.

In response to wildfires in West Texas, members of Southlake Fire Services are responding with the North East Fire Department Association (NEFDA) at the request of the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System (TIFMAS). Two fire officers are taking our Brush Truck to meet up with the NEFDA team deploying from our area and will become a part of the West Texas response out of Abilene.  These fire personnel will assist with the growing numbers of wildfires burning throughout the western portion of the state.
