MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
The first month of 2017 is in the books and flu season may be winding down, but there are still many cases of influenza across Texas and the country. Flu season runs from October through March but the peak of the season can come at any time.
SILVER ALERT PROGRAM
According to a 2016 report issued by the Alzheimer's Association, one in nine people (age 65 and older) has Alzheimer's disease in the United States. Of those with Alzheimer's disease, it is predicted that six out of 10 will wander.
WINTER WEATHER STILL POSSIBLE
Winter weather is an often overlooked hazard when it comes to preparedness. It is always a good idea to work with local partners to review, modify and develop plans for the season.
