Mosquito Spray September 24 and 25
Posted on Sep 23rd, 2016
FOUR MOSQUITO POOLS TEST 'POSITIVE' FOR WNV;
FRISCO TO SPRAY SATURDAY, SUNDAY NIGHTS
(September 22, 2016) The City of Frisco will spray for mosquitoes September 24 and 25 after receiving confirmation four mosquito pools tested ‘positive’ for West Nile virus (WNV).
Weather permitting, on the first evening, spraying will start at 9 p.m. Saturday and continue through 4 a.m. Sunday. Spraying will resume at 9 p.m. Sunday (weather permitting) and continue through 4 a.m. Monday.
The city contractor will treat targeted areas in the following neighborhoods by ground spraying:
Areas within the Starwood neighborhood (including areas north and south of Lebanon Road)
Areas east and west of Hillcrest between Panther Creek and Eldorado
Areas north and south of Lebanon between Hillcrest and Coit
The city contractor will use a utility task vehicle (UTV) to target the following off-road location:
Greenbelt areas within Shaddock Creek Estates
"Even though the fall season begins this week, it's important to remember that if warmer weather persists, mosquito season continues," said Julie Stallcup, Environmental Health Supervisor.

"Our best advice is for people to continue to practice personal protection." 

Today’s confirmations bring the number of ‘positive’ mosquito pools in Frisco this summer to 50. No human cases are confirmed here.
The City of Frisco supports four precautionary habits promoted by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Use approved insect repellents: Use repellent every time you go outside. Approved repellents contain DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Follow label instructions.
Drain standing water: Drain water that collects in cans, tires, buckets, rain gutters, and saucers under potted plants. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water.
Wear long sleeves, pants at dawn and dusk (when mosquitoes are most active).
Use air conditioning: Make sure doors and windows are screened – and those screens are intact.
In accordance with its plan, Frisco began testing for mosquitoes May 1.

Tree Trimming and Garage Sale Reminders
Posted on Aug 19th, 2016
Greetings!
 
It’s back to school time for the kids, and soon the school buses and car pools will be driving through the neighborhood.  Is your property back to school ready? 
 
Step back and take a look at your property.  Do the trees need attention?  Maybe the limbs are too low and are growing over the sidewalk.  Make sure the canopy is lifted, the lower branches trimmed up enough so pedestrians don’t have to bend over when walking on the sidewalk.  Trees should also be lifted and trimmed back so they do not prevent vehicles from driving down the street.  Also make sure that tree limbs don’t block sight lines, traffic signs or street signs.  Thank you to the homeowners who have already lifted their tree canopies!
 
Don’t forget!  The Griffin Parc Community Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, August 20th and Sunday, August 21st, from 7:00 am until 1:00 pm each day, rain or shine.  Each neighbor will display items for sale on his/her front lawn.  If you are not available for the two-day sale, check with one of your neighbors to see if they can assist you with selling your treasures. 
 
The sale is advertised on Nextdoor.com and Griffin Parc’s Facebook page, as well as the Griffin Parc website and SBB’s web portal.  No permit is required, but all signs and unsold items must be removed after the garage sale. 
 
Thank you, and happy selling!

House Fire Caused by Fireplace Ashes
Posted on Dec 4th, 2015
IMPROPERLY DISCARDED FIREPLACE ASHES SUSPECTED AS CAUSE OF HOUSE FIRE;
NO ONE HURT, DAMAGES ESTIMATED AT $300,000 
 
(December 1, 2015) Frisco Fire investigators suspect fireplace ashes improperly discarded in a plastic bucket sparked a house fire Saturday, November 28. 
 
The apparent accidental fire involved a single story home in the 1100 block of Red Hawk.  A neighbor called 911 at approximately 3:08 p.m. Firefighters arrived at 3:14 p.m.  When firefighters arrived, they discovered heavy flames coming from the garage.  No one was home at the time. 
 
The Frisco Fire Department responded with three engines (including two Quints), a truck and an ambulance, as well as three of the department’s specialty units dedicated to Rescue, Safety and Light Air and Rehab.  The fire was extinguished at approximately 4:45 p.m.
 
No one was hurt.  Damages are estimated at $300,000, which includes the structure and approximately $100,000 for contents. 
 
“Gratefully, no one was hurt,” said John Gillette, Frisco Fire Marshal.  “We want to remind residents never assume ashes are ‘cold’ – even if the ashes are several days old. We also want to stress the importance of disposing ashes in metal containers with lids. Even then, make sure you store those containers away from your home."  
 
Other safety tips regarding proper disposal of fireplace ashes include:
Moisten ashes, wood to ensure all embers are ‘out’.
Store ashes away from home (in metal container). 
Always use caution.
