The impact of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and throughout south Texas
is devastating. Entire neighborhoods are gone, communities have been
destroyed, tens of thousands are now without a home. And the full impact
is unknown, there is still massive flooding and evacuations are
ongoing. Here in Rowlett, we know this situation firsthand. Our
community has lived this and our perspective is unique, the empathy we
feel is real and tangible. And now, as the transport of evacuees to the Metroplex is underway, it’s time for us to help.
The Dallas Mega Center at the Dallas Convention Center will provide a
temporary shelter for thousands of our fellow Texans. Rowlett Police and
Fire Rescue currently have staff deployed onsite, and we will remain
there until the need for assistance has passed! Rowlett
Firefighter/Paramedics have also deployed to south Texas with a fully
staffed MICU ambulance.
