Safety is everyone’s responsibility, and it is important that we all take our safety seriously. Here are some public safety reminders and actions you can take to reduce your chance of being a victim of crime.
Porch Pirate Safety:
It's that time of year again when porch pirates are busy trying to ruin your holidays. While porch pirates are a year-round problem, thefts increase during the holiday season. The best way to defeat the bad guys is to be proactive before packages are ever delivered. Watch our video HERE.
HIDE. LOCK. TAKE:
Theft increases during the holiday season, but we have burglars ransacking cars in our neighborhood year-round. You can never be too safe, take measures to prevent this from happening to you. Remember to HIDE your valuables, LOCK your car, and TAKE your keys (or anything else that may be stolen). Watch our video Watch our video HERE.

We have an important video to share with you regarding the safety of our beloved furry friends and neighbors. In accordance with our town ordinance, we want to emphasize the vital importance of keeping your dogs on leashes. This video highlights the reasons behind the ordinance, focusing on the well-being of our pets and the harmony within our community. Watch our video HERE.
Golf Cart Safety:
One of the things that make Trophy Club so special is our world-class golf course. Many of our local residents own golf carts and use them on a daily basis, both to and from the course and around town. While this is a unique and fun aspect of life in Trophy Club, it’s vitally important that safety measures are always taken when operating these motor vehicles. Golf carts are no match for regular vehicles and collisions can be serious or fatal. Help us keep Trophy Club such a safe and special place to live. If you have questions about golf carts and other off-highway vehicles in Trophy Club, please visit www.trophyclub.org/golfcarts or YouTube Video watch our video HERE.
Smoke Alarm Safety:
Smoke alarms save lives when properly installed and maintained, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Test smoke alarms monthly using the test button. Smoke alarms with non-replaceable batteries need the entire smoke alarm unit replaced every ten years. If the alarm chirps signaling a low battery, take the proper steps to replace the unit or the batteries immediately. Never disable or remove the battery from an alarm. If you need help installing, testing, or changing batteries in your smoke alarms, contact the Trophy Club Fire Department @682.237.2940.
