Road conditions
City of Allen crews are prepared to respond to snow and/or ice on main thoroughfares only. We do not maintain the equipment needed to plow residential/neighborhood streets.

Power outages
Don't call 9-1-1 if your power goes out. Contact your power company to report the outage using the information found on your monthly statement. If you see fallen power lines on a road, alley or sidewalk, call 9-1-1 before contacting the power company.

Leaking/burst pipes
Rapid changes in temperature can put a strain on pipes. Report any outdoor leaks or breaks to Allen’s 24-hour water/sewer emergency hotline at 214.509.4530. To prevent pipes from bursting inside your home, open cabinet doors near pipes and keep faucets on a slight trickle when temperatures drop below freezing. This keep warm air circulating. Know where your water shutoff valve is located in case a leak does occur.
