You are all winners for helping us get closer to our goals to acquire the equipment we need to continue improving the Fire and Emergency Medical services we provide for our community. You are our heroes!

The Texas Division of Emergency Management is maintaining a list of counties confirmed to be exempt from this order. According to TDEM’s website, counties must have 20 or less active COVID-19 cases, but also county judges must submit an exemption form, “affirmatively opting out,” before being approved for exemption by the State.

LIMESTONE COUNTY UPDATE: The controversy over the mask order from the Governor brought in lots of debate. The original "argument" was the possible exemption by Counties with less than 20 active cases. Some thought it was total positive cases. I did not sign the exemption for Limestone County. I felt I needed to get with the City Administrators snd local health authority to get a true number of active cases. My concern is how we or anyone can enforce this order. As with all State Orders there have been MANY EXCEPTIONS. The biggest issue will be one that deals with ability to breath. If you have asthma, Allergy, Bronchitis you may be exempt. Because we are so close to the 20 I have decided not to ask for the exemption however I do ask that you do what you can to protect everyone. I want you to be understanding about the enforcement of the order. If you see someone without a mask this does not mean the Police/Sheriff's office is not doing their job. If you see someone without a mask stay at least 6 feet away. Please stay vigilant.
