Hard freeze and road conditions
A hard freeze warning will go into effect at midnight, until 9 a.m. Saturday morning. Remember the four Ps! Protect people, pets, pipes, and plants.
While road conditions have improved slightly today, we are not quite out of the woods just yet.
Any precipitation on the roadways will refreeze Friday night, into Saturday morning.
If you can stay home, please do so. If you must get out, please drive safely at a slow speed, allowing plenty of space between other vehicles.

On-call Public Works - (972) 251-0567

Upcoming CERT opportunity
EastTex CERT is sponsored by the Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management, and is an all-volunteer organization that helps local law enforcement, fire, and emergency management when disasters strike, missing person searches, and public event support. EastTex CERT has over 200 active members and serves Rockwall, Hunt, Kaufman, Collin, and Van Zandt Counties and the Town of Sunnyvale.
The next CERT class will be held on Feb. 12 and Feb. 19 in Rockwall. You must sign up for both days if you are a new member. If you attended the first CERT class in Sunnyvale (or elsewhere) and need to finish your second class, you may finish the second class in Rockwall on Feb. 19.
This is a FREE two-day class that will teach you many preparedness tips to help protect your family as well as the basic skills needed by all EastTex Regional CERT members. Although not required, you can choose to be an active member of the deployment team and be put on the call-out list for emergencies. The class is available to those age 14 and over and all volunteers must go through a criminal background check. *You must be 18 to join the active call-out team.
