Police Motorcycle Rodeo
Motorcycle Rodeo at Wagon Wheel Park attracts riders from all over Texas and across the nation. Over the last three years, the event has donated $46,000 to MetroplexCOPS.org and built a wall to remember fallen officers Mike Johns and Donald Swearingin. Organizers say this year’s rodeo expects to bring at least 70 riders to Coppell and approximately 4,000 spectators. Admission is free for spectators. Entry fee for police officers is $50 and includes all meals, trophies, and prizes.
Fire Hydrant Flushing
City employees will be flushing all public fire hydrants throughout the city during the months of March and April. Irving firefighters perform flushing to check for proper water flow and pressure, and to ensure that hydrants will work properly in case of emergency. State and federal agencies require water utilities workers to flush fire hydrants monthly to circulate water and remove rust and other debris from lines. This process helps ensure that the fire hydrants are working properly for public safety and that fresh, quality water arrives at each house and business.
