High Wind Dangers

El Paso Fire Department Officials would like to offer these safety tips:

  • Conduct a home hazard hunt and perimeter search, in which you inspect your home for items that can move, fall, break or cause a fire
  • Make trees more wind resistant by removing diseased and damaged limbs
  • Move or secure lawn furniture, outdoor decorations or ornaments, trash cans, hanging plants and anything else that can be picked up by wind and become a projectile
  • Slow down when driving and have enough distance with the car in front of you due to blowing dust lowering visibility
  • Do not attempt to remove any electrical wires that fall on your homes and vehicles; call 911 immediately
