Spring weather is here in full force and with the threat of severe weather Friday night, the city of Frisco is doing what it can to be ready for anything.
The area has already seen its share of severe weather this spring with the Frisco Emergency Department keeping a close watch on any storm systems coming this way.
“We get local weather forecast from the National Weather Service and our Texas Emergency coordinator which helps us know what’s going on around us and what could potentially hit the Frisco area,” Frisco Fire Department Training Battalion Chief
Paul Henley said. “We monitor that through our emergency coordination center and broadcast from national weather service”
When the weather looks troublesome, the department immediately takes action.
“If severe weather does hit and we need to alert residents then there’s the sirens that we activate here and we test every Wednesday,” Henley said. “If it’s severe weather then we know that it’s not a test and we also have a code red that goes throughout the city on things that might impact in.”
