City of Taylor Police and Fire Departments advise the public to please call 9-1-1 in cases of serious emergency as a result of the continued high winds and rain. Staff is assessing and prioritizing needs, based on the severity of the situation. An example of a priority emergency situation would be a tree fallen across a roadway or into a structure causing damage, versus leaning trees or power poles. Trees that have fallen on private property are the responsibility of the property owner, however. As the rains continue to fall, police and fire crews are working 24 hours a day for the public’s safety.
