In addition to the main exit to FM 933 on White Bluff Drive, the map shows three other exits that can be used if use of the White Bluff Drive exit is impractical.
Hill County "Reverse 911" will be used to notify residents of the emergency. If you are not already receiving these calls for recent warnings such as local thunderstorms, see the previously posted article on how to add your name to this list.

What Happens When You Call 911 in WB
In case of any medical emergency at White Bluff, you should always call 911.
The White Bluff VFD will be first responders to the scene, typically arriving in just a few minutes. Richard Ashley of the VFD is an EMT, and the other members of the VFD receive monthly medical training from a paramedic with the Lake Whitney EMS (Emergency Medical Services).
At the same time that your 911 call is forwarded to the WB VFD, the closest available ambulance will be dispatched. A certified Emergency Medical Dispatcher will continue to get more information from you, even as the ambulance is on its way.
White Bluff is located within Emergency Services District (ESD) #2. The nearest ESD #2 ambulance location is on 933 about 3 miles south of White Bluff, just behind the Country Club Retirement Center. The ambulance will typically arrive at WB within 5 minutes after you call 911, on its way to your location within WB.
Once the ambulance arrives, control of the situation is turned over to the paramedics. If it is determined that a helicopter transport is needed, the fastest available helicopter service will be called. Both CareFlite and Air-Evac helicopters are close enough to be at the scene within 15-20 minutes of the call; Air-Evac provides the majority of air responses within White Bluff.
ESD#2 pays for membership in both Air Evac and Care Flite air service for all White Bluff residents. It is not necessary for anyone who lives in White Bluff to join either of these services.
All WB residents are covered by CareFlite anywhere CareFlite operates. Air Evac however limits their coverage to Hill County and any contiguous county. WB residents can purchase annual coverage for $35 per household from Air Evac that will cover them anywhere the AirMedCare Network operates.
