Dispatchers ask a standard set of questions to prioritize your call and determine the response you need. After the dispatcher verifies the location with you, a response is already on the way. The dispatcher knows the address you are calling from, but does not know the address where you need help sent to until you verify that address. You must then answer the additional questions to further help the law enforcement officers, the fire department or the paramedics. The dispatcher relays the pertinent information by radio to the responding units prior to their arrival at the scene. This increases the chances of survival of a medical patient or injured person or the prevention of a crime and/or the apprehension of a suspect.

Residential fire deaths have decreased steadily as the number of homes with smoke detectors has increased. Reports from the National Fire Protection Association on residential fire deaths show that people have nearly a 50 percent better chance of surviving a fire if their home has the recommended number of smoke detectors.
Smoke detectors that are 10 years old are near the end of their service life and should be replaced. A smoke detector monitors the air 24 hours a day. At the end of 10 years, it has gone through over 3.5 million monitoring cycles. After this much use, components may become less reliable. This means that as the detector gets older, the potential of failing to detect a fire increases. Replacing them after 10 years reduces this possibility.
Any firework that must be ignited by a heat source is illegal to possess or discharge. Small items such as "poppers" are not prohibited. Individuals are subject to confiscation of all fireworks found in their possession and a fine up to $2,000 plus court costs.
Fireworks also may not be discharged on federal, state, or county roadways. If individuals plan to discharge fireworks on private property not belonging to them, they must have a written letter of permission from the land owner.
The Midland Fire Department also reminds citizens to use caution when discharging fireworks. Eye and burn injuries are common among children, and they should be supervised by an adult. Devices such as sparklers may reach temperatures exceeding 1,000 degrees.
Grass fires are another potential risk during fireworks season. Have at least one of the following extinguishing agents available while discharging fireworks: water, sand or dirt, or a portable fire extinguisher. Never hesitate to call 911 if a fire develops.

You may hear broad development words like "land use" often used throughout the next 15-18 months as we work together on this plan, but the framework that Tall City Tomorrow will set out for us will affect your day-to-day life for years to come. Think of what you see when you walk your kids to school, or go for a jog near a local park. These experiences didn't happen by chance. Neither have new shopping centers nor our new fire station. As our city rapidly expands, we want to know what you'd like future development to look like, and how we can more efficiently deliver public services to the entire community.
Tall City Tomorrow will address the Midland we see today, the Midland we will see tomorrow, and the important elements that will get us there.
Because this long-range plan will deal with issues as many as 30 years down the road, the plan cannot chart a highly specific course. Instead, it points the way toward goals and objectives and acts as a reminder of the general policies that the City should consider when making development decisions.
City staff will use Tall City Tomorrow as public infrastructure projects are planned, designed, built and maintained. Developers will use the plan to inform their development proposals and, in doing so, streamline the approval process.
Any violation may result in a fine up to $500.
