BEXAR METRO 9-1-1 REOC – Recently, the Bexar Metro 9-1-1 Regional Emergency Operations Center (REOC) broke ground for a new state of the art facility in our area. The Bexar Metro 9-1-1 REOC will serve Bexar County, Comal County and Guadalupe County. The 79,000 SF facility will provide emergency operations, a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), and administrative functions and is budgeted at $39 million. The project includes two Tier III+ data centers and a 13,878 SF PSAP operations floor with 104 consoles. The facility is designed to provide uninterrupted 9-1-1 services during various emergencies, including terrorist attacks and natural disasters. The building is constructed to withstand an EF3 tornado strike and operate without any public utilities for an extended period of time. In the coming months, I plan to provide you with additional updates and information as the project moves along.
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT – October 6, 2015. Anyone participating in any activities in the neighborhood be sure to invite your neighbors to attend and get to know them better. One of the best services we provide each other as neighbors is knowing what is “normal” for our fellow neighbors and our neighborhood. National Night Out provides a platform for neighbors to get together, learn more about each other, discuss any problems that their area of the neighborhood might be experiencing and provide each other with current contact information to keep in touch effectively should an emergency arise where neighbors need to help each other out.
TPOA OCTOBER BOARD MEETING – October 6, 2015 at 6 pm. In order to accommodate the National Night Out events scheduled in our neighborhood, the board has moved the regularly scheduled TPOA meeting to begin an hour earlier than usual. This meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and features an opportunity to meet the candidates who have agreed to run for office this coming electoral cycle. It will be your only opportunity via HOA meetings prior to the December annual meeting, to meet the candidates. Plan to attend if you can!
