DENTON, Texas -- As temperatures continue to soar and the threat of wildfires remains constant, all Texans are encouraged to become more aware of the dangers that wildfires pose.
One easy way to become more familiar with the continuous fire threat is to view educational videos that are available online. These videos can be shown at places such as PTA meetings, senior activity centers, service club meetings, faith-based centers and other community-organization meetings.
Some examples of videos available include:
- TEXAS FIRESTORMS:
- TEXAS WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLAN:
- A COMMUNITY REBUILDS: RECOVERING FROM WILDFIRES

FEMA's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
