Weather in North Texas is unpredictable and can change in an instant. Families never can be over-prepared for severe 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 2023 Emergency Preparedness Summit & Fair on Saturday morning, April 22nd at the Hebron High School 9th Grade Campus in Carrollton.  

In partnership with Lewisville ISD, the City of Carrollton, the Denton County Office of Emergency Management and other organizations, Dr. Burgess has designed this free and informative event to be enjoyable for the whole family, kids to seniors.
