THE DMR HAS TWO OFFICIAL AND IMPORTANT WEB SITES THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE AWARE OF AND CHECK FREQUENTLY - This official DMPOA site contains a wealth of information for property owners, residents and guests of the DMR.  Here you can find our governing
documents, DMPOA Board meeting agendas and minutes, community information and more! - This site is for the Davis Mountains Volunteer Fire Department.  This is a great place to keep up with our local fire department, see photos of the
fire fighters and equipment, news and many useful links.  

Both of the above sites are useful and should be checked frequently, especially in times of emergencies such as fires.

Thanks to Carol Diquilio for coming up with these great signs!  One will be at cattle guard, one at Thompson trail and one at the
Community Center.  Additionally, on a personal note, it would be a good idea for people not to stop and have any interaction with
the critters while driving within the DMR, but slow down even further. Drive for the conditions and watch out for animals!

                                                                                 Governor Abbott's Statewide Order -   March 31, 2020

Governor Abbott Issues Statewide Covid-19 Order with Exceptions for Firearms Industry and Hunting/Fishing

Today, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order implementing Essential Services and Activities Protocols for Texas that will override previous local orders and be in effect through April
30th.  The protocols allow exceptions for essential activities and services based on the Department of Homeland Security's guidelines on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, which
includes "workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges."

The governor also mentioned in his press release that it does not prohibit people from engaging in essential daily activities, such as hunting or fishing, provided that the necessary precautions
are maintained to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and to minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.

Thank you, Governor Abbott, for ensuring that Texans' Second Amendment rights are protected at this time and for allowing recreational activities with firearms to continue in a safe and
responsible manner.
