ABOUT VILLAGES OF DEER PARK
The “Villages of Deer Park” is located in historic Deer Park, Texas. Construction on the “Villages of Deer Park” began in 2003 with Gehan Homes and Brighton Homes as the builders. The community was completed in 2007 with 635 homes spread out over 150 acres. The community is divided into eight (8) sections: Wincrest, Crestwood, Bentwood, Sabine, Trinity, Wimberly, Piney Point 1, and Piney Point 2.
Villages of Deer Park is located on the North side of Pasadena Boulevard at the intersection of East Boulevard and extends on either side of East Boulevard to slightly beyond San Augustine with easy access to Highway 225, Sam Houston Parkway, Highway 146, and Fairmont Parkway. The community is conveniently located to downtown Houston and the Medical center, as well as area shopping, golf courses, recreation centers, parks, hospitals, pharmacies, colleges, universities, churches, daycares, and major employment centers.
Deer Park is rich in history and is known as the “Birthplace of Texas.” Our town was founded and named in 1892 by Simeon West, a settler from Illinois. He chose the name because of the large number of deer that roamed the Gulf plains. The Battle of San Jacinto was fought on our soil with General Sam Houston’s army defeating General Antonio López de Santa Anna April 21, 1836 securing Texas’ Independence. The citizens of Deer Park voted to incorporate December 12, 1948. Our first mayor was Earl E. Dunn.
Today, Deer Park has approximately 9,000 homes and more than 32,000 residents. It was named “Best Affordable Suburb in Texas for 2010” by Bloomberg BusinessWeek and recognized for a contender spot on the CNN list of “100 Best Places to Live” in 2009

LOCAL EMERGENCY PLANNING COMMITTEE (LEPC)
The City of Deer Park’s LEPC is a non-profit community organization composed of city and school district officials, police and fire emergency response personnel, industry and environmental representatives, news media, and interested citizens of Deer Park. LEPC members work together to develop plans to educate, communicate, and protect our local community in case of a chemical emergency. The Deer Park LEPC meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except July and December) in the City Council Chambers at City Hall located at 710 E San Augustine. All LEPC meetings and records are open to the public. To learn more about our LEPC, please visit their website @ www.deerparklepc.org.
- Chemical Emergencies: If a chemical emergency could affect citizens within the City of Deer Park, police dispatchers will activate the Outside Alarm System. The alarms are activated for chemical emergencies or severe weather such as a tornado that has been spotted in the Deer Park area. The Outside Alarm System is tested at 6:00 p.m. on the 1st Thursday of each month.
- The City of Deer Park has nine (9) siren-type alarms mounted on utility poles throughout our City plus another alarm at Battleground State Park. The alarms can be sounded citywide or only in the geographic area affected by the emergency. The Warning Sounds consists of seven (7) wavering tones.
- Also, an automated telephone notification network can ring the telephones of homes and businesses in the immediate danger area, with pre-recorded instructions about what to do. The network can be activated citywide or within one or more geographic zones. The database contains all listed and unlisted telephone numbers in Deer Park as well as Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) numbers issued by cable companies.
- Most plants in Deer Park have their own alarm systems so they can warn their employees and contractors to evacuate the plant or seek shelter during a fire or chemical release. Each plant’s alarm sounds are purposely different so employees at neighboring plants will know what type of incident is occurring at which facility. Most plants test their alarm systems at least once per week.
- What should I do during a chemical emergency? Industry officials are responsible for notifying Deer Park police/fire dispatch about any chemical release that may affect our community. City of Deer Park officials are responsible for warning nearby homes, schools, businesses and recommending appropriate protective actions. You are responsible for following those instructions to protect yourself and your family.
- City officials may recommend you “Shelter in place” until the chemical release is stopped and winds have dissipated any vapors. If a “shelter-in-place” is recommended, here’s what you do:
- Go inside; close all doors and windows
- Turn off your air conditioning or heating system
- Turn on your radio to AM 530, KTRH AM 740, or KUHF FM 88.7
- Stay off the phone! Do not call police, fire, or 9-1-1 unless you are reporting a police, fire or medical emergency at your location. Overloaded telephone circuits may keep emergency calls from getting through.
- How will I know when the emergency is over?
- Stay inside, sheltered in place, until you hear the “All Clear” message from City officials over the Outside Alarm System, telephone notification system, or AM 530. The “All Clear” signal is a continuous tone on the Outside Alarm System.
- For more information about the different warning and communications systems available in our community, visit the website at www.deerparklepc.org/emerg.html and click on the “Communications” page under the “About Us” link.
