Yvette OrozcoMay 23, 2019

It’s that time of year again.

The hurricane season officially starts on June 1 and lasts through October, and Deer Park city officials are using a variety of approaches to reach residents with the latest information about how to be ready.

Entities including the city’s emergency services and police department and the National Weather Service have spent months sharing information and developing education tools such as an updated emergency preparedness guide, city spokeswoman Kristin Callahan said.

The free guide is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at City Hall, 710 E. San Augustine St. It is also available at the police and fire departments and the Deer Park Public Library, 3009 Center St. The publication, which is not available online, is applicable for all emergency and shelter-in-place events, such as the fire at the Intercontinental Terminals Co. plant in March and heavy rain in early May.
