National Preparedness Month

DocumentSeptember is National Preparedness Month, and over the next few weeks, the Wichita Falls Police Department will be sharing tips on how you and your neighbors can prepare for disasters. We hope you will find this information helpful!

We know disasters are often sudden, and could result in catastrophic damage – or worse, loss of life. As part of our commitment to keeping this community safe ahead of, during, and after an emergency or natural disaster, the Wichita Falls Police Department wants to remind you about Nextdoor’s Urgent Alert feature.

This tool helps our department push out real-time, critical information area-wide, targeted to a specific service area, or neighborhood. Find out how you can ensure your Urgent Alert feature is active in case of an emergency by clicking here.

And remember, Nextdoor and other social media platforms should not be considered a replacement for emergency-related requests. If you need immediate assistance, please always call 911.
