Look at the color-coded map to find out. It shows the areas at risk from winds and storm surge associated with hurricanes. There are five of these risk areas, each shown in a different color and each corresponding to one of the five categories of hurricanes on the Saffir/Simpson Scales. The stronger the storm, the greater the inland impact will be and the more risk areas affected.
Your local officials will tell you. During a Hurricane Watch, listen to your radio or television constantly. Emergency officials can interrupt routine broadcasts to give special weather updates, warning messages, and evacuation information. To receive this information, tune to:
For 24-hour weather broadcasts from the National Weather Service, tune to NOAA Weather Radio on the high-band FM frequency 162.55 megahertz (MHz) that broadcasts from Galveston, 162.40 MHz that broadcasts from Houston, or 162.425 MHz that broadcasts from Bay City.
While there are no sure ways to predict when and where a hurricane will come ashore in Texas, both cities and counties have emergency managers whose job is to prepare the community and its citizens for these storms and other disasters. For answers to specific questions you may have concerning hurricanes and preparing for them, contact your local Emergency Management Office.
Prepare by doing the following:
Arrange beforehand with friends or family to help you evacuate. If you have no one to turn to or you have special needs, get in touch with your local officials now. They need to know who you are, where you live, and what kind of help you need so they can be ready to provide aid when a storm threatens.
That depends on the size of the storm and the number of people who evacuate. the chart on the reverse side will give you an idea, but keep in mind the times shown are only estimates. They assume that all evacuation routes are open and only show the time needed to move all traffic inland just beyond the threatened risk areas. It will take longer to reach a shelter location or your final destination.
Also, keep in mind, if the chart shows 10 hours, officials won't wait until the storm is 10 hours from landfall to begin an evacuation. Remember, the goal is to get everyone out of the threatened area before evacuation routes become impassable or unsafe due to flooding or high winds. This will happen when the storm is still many hours away from landfall. So, don't be surprised if there are no clouds and the sun is shining when local officials tell you to evacuate. Follow their instructions; your health and safety are their main concern.
Inland, away from the coast. Use the evacuation routes shown on this map. Most of these roads are marked with blue hurricane evacuation signs. If you have friends or family at an inland location, arrange beforehand to stay with them. If you plan to stay in a hotel or motel, make reservations prior to departure to ensure you have a room. Cities and towns along the main evacuation routes may open public shelters, but these will be crowded and the creature comforts, limited. If you need to use a public shelter, listen to your radio as you are evacuating to find out where shelters are open.

Depending on the nature of the, call Fire engine companies will respond with the ambulance to provide additional help if it is a serious call. If the ambulance from that district is already on a call, the Engine will respond to provide help until an ambulance from another station or from a Mutual Aid City (if all ours are out) can get there. Texas City Fire Department has paramedic capable Engines which means many times you will have paramedic help there before the ambulance arrives.
There is on average about 8000 ambulance calls a year.
We operate three front-line units which consist of two BLS/MICU units at Stations 2 and 3 and a BLS/MICU Transport Rescue from the Central Fire Station. We have in reserve one Rescue truck and two ambulances that we can cross man in cases of emergency.
Admission to the Emergency room is based upon the severity of injury or illness regardless of how you get there. Someone with chest pains or difficulty breathing will go before someone who has a headache or a cut arm. The hospitals use a system called Triage where patients are evaluated and ranked with the more serious patient going first. Many ambulance patients will be sent to the waiting room if more serious patients are there.
This means that for some reason the hospital has reached a level of patients where if any more are brought in they will experience extremely long wait times for treatment. Hospitals advise the ambulances of this so that they may go to another hospital that does not have as many patients. This is to provide the patient the best care as soon as possible.

Upon receiving your water bill write down the date you received it and read your meter (visit the How to Read a Water Meter page to learn more). The difference between the time the City read it and the date you received it in the mail is approximately two weeks. After reading your meter, calculate the difference. If the current reading on the bill is higher than the reading you just read, call our office at 409-643-5923.
Since the meter is the lowest part in your yard it acts like a drain. Therefore, any moisture (rain, car wash, watering the yard) will create mud in the meter box. But, each month the meter reader wipes only the glass register to take the billing reading.
Only if the divorce decree denotes the ownership of said location to the individual can the water bill transferred into that name without a new deposit.
Yes, with a copy of the death certificate and photo identification, the water bill can be transferred to the surviving spouse without a new deposit.
No. A new deposit, legal document(s) showing proof of ownership of said property and payment of any outstanding balance on the estate must be paid prior to start of water service.
Since the City only bills in the thousands, it's not uncommon to have the same bill during the year. You may use 3,590 gallons of water, but the City will only bill 3,000 gallons of usage. Therefore, if you use 3,999 or 3,001 gallons of water, you are only billed 3,000 gallons of usage.
