Many thanks to everyone for helping make the 2019 4th of July Parade and Festival a huge success. First, during the 5K run, a participant experienced a medical episode and required emergency medical care.   VFD paramedics and ambulance had to exit the parade and respond to the location of the downed runner. MVPD officers were already in the area assisting with traffic, also responded and immediately began CPR. VFD personnel arrived and continued emergency treatment and transported the patient to the hospital. Our thanks and appreciation to our first responders for reacting so quickly and coordinating their critical care response, all during the activities of the Village Independence Festival. This a great example of our quality personnel and how our training pays off during emergency situations, even when things occur during the middle of another large-scale event.   The Villages truly have the best police and fire departments around.

Working and managing the VIF is a multi-jurisdictional activity. Personnel from Memorial Villages PD, Hedwig PD, Spring Valley PD, Spring Branch ISD and Village Fire all worked to ensure a successful VIF celebration. All agencies manage the traffic during the 5K run and parade. Both activities require personnel to manage traffic and pedestrians along the 3.2-mile route. Their day started in the middle of the night with MVPD personnel dropping off barricades, cones and placing no parking signs along the route.  An hour before the first runners started, personnel were at their posts setting up barricades and rerouting traffic, all while getting vendors and participants to the proper locations. Parade participants, floats and vehicles were staged at the Memorial Church of Christ by Exchange Club volunteers and at 8:45 am the day’s events began. Activities continued until the Village Fire Truck cooled everyone off at 1pm with the annual kids spray down.

During this year’s event, over 2200 hot dogs were cooked and eaten and the MVPD Foundation’s Kona Ice truck served over 1300 shaved ice treats. VFD provided first aid services for everything from scrapes to ant bites, while the MVPD helped reunite 4 kids to their lost parents. As always, a fun and safe event.  Thank You!  Memorial Exchange Club.  

During the parade we had a drone assist with monitoring streets and the parade itself.  We even streamed the event live to residents and I have had several people let me know that they watched it on-line.  Officer Boggus has taken the parade video, edited it down and even added some music. 

The video is now available on-line on YouTube at https://youtu.be/vPUFOjlJLnk

The video also demonstrates how you can have a small-town, community themed event and parade, in the center of one of the largest metropolitan communities in the country.  Thank you Officer Boggus for creating a terrific and patriotic video.

In this week’s crime report you will see that intoxicated drivers continue to be a problem throughout the area.  We will continue to make arrests and keep our streets as safe as possible. If see a suspected drunk driver in the villages, let us know at 713-365-3700. We will do our best to get them off of the roadways.

Have an enjoyable-extended holiday weekend. Go Team USA. Chief Ray Schultz rschultz@mvpdtx.org
