What should I do if my home is struck by lightning?
First and foremost, don’t panic. It is always recommended to call 911 if you suspect your home has been struck by lightning. Lightning is a very dynamic phenomenon. Often what sounds like and appears to be a direct strike on your home is only a strike in your area. In the interest of safety, the Fire Department would rather inspect a suspected strike than risk having an undetected fire cause greater damage.

The City of Frisco and the Frisco Fire Department are committed to a proactive approach to fire safety and quality of life in our city. Our goal is to minimize the risk of lightning strikes in our community thereby reducing the risk for loss of life and property. For more information, please call Frisco Fire Marshal's office at 972-292-6320.
