According to NFPA, cooking is the leading cause of home
fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Almost half
(44%) of reported home fires started in the kitchen. Two-
thirds (66%) of home cooking fires start with the ignition of
food or other cooking materials.

“We know cooking fires can be prevented,” said Lorraine
Carli, NFPA’s vice-president of outreach and advocacy.
“Staying in the kitchen, using a timer, and avoiding distrac-
tions such as electronics or TV are steps everyone can
take to keep families safe in their homes.”

Here are some safety tips to keep you from having a cook-
ing fire.

                                                     The Converse Parks Department takes great pride in keeping the
                                                     community safe by taking the necessary extra steps to keep our parks
                                                     open and safe. We are using our new disinfecting fogger to disinfect all the

                                                     ment located throughout our parks to combat the spread of Covid-19.

                                                     We are excited to announce some new updates and improvements for the
                                                     city. One of the improvements you may have noticed, is the new direction
                                                     park signs located throughout the city. We are also working to improve and

                                                     to the new Greenway Walking Trail.

Because the safety of our community members is of upmost importance,
the Parks Department will be installing new speed bumps located by the Converse Fitness center.

 As we enter the Fall season, the Grounds Division led
 by Supervisor Elvin Hernandez, is proudly motivated by
 the improvements the Grounds Division team completed
 around the city. Public Works maintained an efficient and
 constant operating speed during the middle of a pandem-
 ic and of course the Texas heat. Our team focused on
 the cleaning and maintaining all of the drainage ditches
 around the city as well as maintained a constant presence
 in areas like Toepperwein Rd., S. Seguin Rd., and areas
 surrounding 1604 such as Thornton Lane, Greytown Road,
 and Rocket Lane so that our City looks as sharp as it can.

 The Grounds Division not only is maintaining responsi-
 bility around our right of ways but also assuring that any        October 13 2020, so that our residents have a location to
