Parker County residents eligible for safe room wait list program

Weatherford Democrat

— Beginning Friday evening, Parker County residents looking for financial assistance to purchase or build storm shelters or safe rooms can sign up with an online waiting list through the North Central Texas Council of Governments.  

Those wishing to be placed on the Parker County list will need to log on to on or after 7 p.m. Friday. No documentation will be required to be on the list, just name and address only. Those without Internet access can call the NCTCOG Emergency Preparedness department at 817-695-9235.

Once the list opens, it will not close, according to NCTCOG officials.

NCTCOG officials say it may take three to 18 months for those who sign up to be contacted once residents have placed their name on the waiting list. To participate applicants must be living or developing in Parker County and must not be living within a designated 100-year floodplain.
