Hurricane Harvey: How to Help

How to Help

The City of North Richland Hills is helping the disaster relief effort in several ways. NRH Fire-Rescue personnel were deployed to South Texas on Aug. 25 with Texas Task Force 2 to help during and after Hurricane Harvey and a second Fire-Rescue crew was deployed on Aug. 30. Several NRH dispatchers deployed on Aug. 28 to provide relief to dispatch staff along the coast. Our Emergency Management staff has been working since before Hurricane Harvey hit at the state's Emergency Operations Center in North Texas. Four NRH police officers went to Houston on Sept. 5 to help relieve Houston officers and assist with patrol duties there. Our Emergency Management staff has been working since before Hurricane Harvey hit at the state's Emergency Operations Center in North Texas. Follow the NRH Police and Fire departments on Facebook for updates on the assistance our public safety personnel is providing.  


If you'd like to help those who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey, the fastest and easiest way to help is through a financial donation to your charity of your choice.

Please do not take donated items to North Texas shelters as they don't have the staffing or storage to support such donations. Thanks for helping your fellow Texans in need!


Other city employees are helping here at home by raising funds for the American Red Cross. The community is welcome to join in this effort by participating in the following dining days:
