Denton County Residents
Denton County has seen quite a few storms lately. Several cities in Precinct 4 reported grapefruit or even tennis ball size hail just last week. In addition to the storms, we are also experiencing excessive heat in Denton County. To date in the 2023 season, there have been 23 cases of Heat-Related Illnesses (HRI) in Denton County residents. The leading cause of reported HRI cases include heat-related overexposure, rash, stress, and malaise followed by sunburn. Males between the ages of 18 and 35 have experienced the largest amount of HRI cases among all age groups. Please take precautions with the dangerously hot temperatures and stay safe when you are outdoors. One way that you can stay alert when severe weather is on the way is to sign up for alerts through our Emergency Management Department.
Denton County has switched providers for its mass notification system. If you previously signed up for alerts using CodeRED, Nixle, or Reverse 911, you will need to create a new account on the Denton County Everbridge system.
Emergency Management recommends that you check with your city or town to see what notification systems they offer and to register for access.
