Emergency Preparedness

Weather in North Texas is unpredictable and can change in an instant! We can never be too prepared for rough weather and unforeseen natural and man-made disasters that may impact the region. In an effort to help residents be better prepared, Congressman Burgess is hosting his annual Emergency Preparedness Summit & Fair on Saturday morning, April 28th at Little Elm High SchoolCongressman Burgess is partnering with Little Elm ISD, the Town of Little Elm, and Denton County Emergency Services plus many other organizations to host an informative and family fun event for all age groups, kids to seniors!  

At this free public event, families can tour indoor and outdoor exhibits/vehicles providing emergency and disaster preparedness resources and make & takes as well as view live safety demonstrations. There will be a “Kid Safety Zone” with activities geared to children that will engage the whole family in becoming prepared for any type of emergency situation. The event will open to the public at 8:00 am with access to the fair, and presentations will begin at 8:30 am; the event will conclude at 12:00 Noon.  Learn how to protect your family as we #PrepareNTX
