haltom city emergency management logo

Starting on the evening of Sunday, August 21, 2022 and continuing through the afternoon of Monday, August 22 Haltom City experienced record setting rainfall. Nearly 10 inches of rain fell over a 24 hour period (with some reports of 12 inches). From the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Haltom City First Responders made eight vehicle rescues and seven home rescues, evacuating 25 residents from the rising waters. City staff assisted in the Emergency Operations Center, coordinating resource requests from the on-scene commanders, opening a shelter for displaced residents and issuing public safety notifications.

Once the waters receded, city staff went door-to-door in the affected areas to offer assistance and connect residents with available resources through the American Red Cross, FEMA and 211. Christian Aid Ministries and Waste Connections will be onsite Saturday, August 27 to assist with home cleanup and debris removal. Damage assessments identified 26 residences and numerous public facilities impacted, one of the largest natural disasters the city has ever seen.

Fire Marshal - Fireworks Notice

The Haltom City Fire Marshal would like to remind everyone that possession of opened packages and use of fireworks, including sparklers, is illegal within the City of Haltom City. Each year in the United States hundreds of people are injured, and thousands of fires are caused by the use of fireworks.

This year, the Haltom City Fire Marshal and the Haltom City Police Department will be patrolling the city on July 4th, looking for illegal fireworks. Any illegal fireworks found are subject to confiscation, and a citation may be written to the person in possession of the fireworks. Fireworks are prohibited under City Ordinance #99-006-05 and the International Fire Code Article 56.

If you need to report a fireworks violation call the North Richland Hills-Richland Hills-Haltom City-Watauga Joint dispatch non-emergency number, 817-281-1000.

If you have any questions regarding fireworks, contact Fire Marshal Damian Vogle at 817-222-7148 or by email.
