Although being a reghter is already a risky job, cancer is a long-term danger that can remain dormant for years and is becoming more top-of-mind for these rst responders, who are signicantly more likely than the average person to be diagnosed with various forms of cancer in their lifetimes. Overall, reghters are 9% more likely to develop cancer and 14%more likely to die from cancer than the general population. However, reghters are at a 114% to 202%greater risk of developing certain cancers, such as mesothelioma, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, malig- nant melanoma and leukemia as these are classied as common occupational illnesses, said Doug Boeker, Sugar Land Fire-EMS chief. “We have a number of retirees that have had cancer, and we’ve had a number of current employees that have had some sort of cancer,” Boeker said. “The num- ber of skin cancers on chests, necks and faces … is very similar to the absorption areas that studies show are highest.” Both Sugar Land and Missouri City re departments CONTINUED ON 24 Local reagenciescombat cancers in reghters BY BETH MARSHALL

FEATURED IMPACT COMING SOON Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery and Kitchen held its groundbreaking ceremony Jan. 17 at 8921 Harlem Road, Richmond. Construction is slated to take 10 to 12 months, and this marks the fourth location for Messina Hof. Upon completion, the winery will be the largest in southeast Texas, according to a Messina Hof press release. The winery will also be the winemakers’ second- largest production facility, with both vineyard harvesting and wine processing aging taking place on-site. Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery will also become the home for all wine shipping operations, including the Messina Hof Wine Club, according to a press release. Later, a large indoor event space will be constructed. Eventually the project will also serve the local community with educational programming, work with the community farmers on seasonal tastings, and start to harvest and make wine from the experimental vineyard plots that are being added. Paul M. Bonarrigo and his wife Karen, the owners of the Harvest Green winery, are second-generation owners and operators of Messina Hof. “Our rst brick-and-mortar presence in Houston will be on a grand scale, allowing us to connect with our large family of consumers in Houston and Southeast Texas,” Paul M. said in the

release. The Richmond location will host a tasting room, a wine bar, an open- kitchen restaurant that will seat about 130 people and a 2,600-square-foot covered patio. The restaurant portion at Messina Hof Harvest Green will serve dishes made from on-site gardens and Harvest Green’s neighborhood farm to create a hyperlocal menu focused on Messina Hof’s trademark Vineyard Cuisine. “We are very excited about the Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery,” Harvest Green General Manager Jerry Ulke said in the release. “The Bonarrigos’ plans for the winery perfectly align with our vision to create a community that values our natural resources and wants a closer connection to mother nature.” www.messinahof.com/harvestgreen

Hwy. 6 road-widening project in Sugar Land experiences delays The project to widen Hwy. 6 from six to eight lanes between Lexington Boulevard and Brooks Street in Sugar Land has ex- perienced delays early on in construction.

Adolph said the city, along with the utili- ty company and the Texas Department of Transportation, has resolved the issue. Construction is currently ongoing, and the city is not yet aware of the new time- line for completion. Crews are working to pour concrete for the outside lane on the southbound side from Town Center Boulevard to Lexing- ton Boulevard.

In addition to making the road more pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly, the project expanded the road from two to four lanes between FM 521 and the Fort Bend Parkway Toll Road, and added a continuous center turn lane.

Fort Bend County reviews results fromEMS, fire dispatch study

TRACKING TIMES

Fire and EMS departments are evaluated at the 90th percentile, meaning the goal is to respond in the same amount of time or less 90% of the time. A Fitch & Associates study showed Fort Bend County could improve these times.

CALL PROCESSING TIMES

one operator to one channel, and law enforcement had three operators and three channels. “The potential for a collision between a fire channel needing some- thing and a second channel needing something at the same time can result in a safety issue,” Moeller said. EMS calls account for about 60% of incidents, while fire accounts for about 40% of incidents. In one year, there were 22,523 fire incidents reported. “That volume of activity is not something that’s overwhelming for a single dispatcher, but this was set up over six channels, which caught our attention,” Moeller said. Another area for improvement is the time it takes a dispatcher to process a call and push it out, Moeller said. In Fort Bend County, the average processing time for fire calls is two minutes, and the average time for EMS

BY BETH MARSHALL

FORTBENDCOUNTY Officials are looking to improve fire and EMS call response times following a Feb. 4 workshop presentation from Fitch & Associates, a public safety consulting firm, that indicated dispatch and arrival times are taking longer than they should. “This whole discussion started with issues in Precinct 3,” Fort Bend County Judge KP George said. “Every precinct has different needs and a different number of people living in it. Precinct 3 is more than 33% of Fort Bend County, and 95% of the people in Precinct 3 don’t live in a city. That means the county provides service to them.” One issue Bruce Moeller, a senior consultant with Fitch & Associates, pointed out was that fire dispatch had, at the time of the study, one person operating six radio channels. EMS had

calls is one minute and 55 seconds, Moeller said. However, fire and EMS departments are designed and evaluated at the 90th percentile. This means that rather than aiming to meet a certain target 50% of the time, as departments would using the average, the goal is to align with hitting the same time 90% of the time. For the 90th percentile measure, Fort Bend County takes three minutes and 22 seconds to process fire calls and three minutes and four seconds to process EMS calls. “Both at the average and at the 90th

percentile, the performance here is not as strong as we would like to see it,” Moeller said. Call processing should take about one minute and 30 seconds for dispatching at the 90th percentile. One way to shave down the time is to tie the safety entities together so residents calling in are not asked the same questions multiple times, Moeller said. “I’ll be blunt, 90-95% of the time 911 calls do not need that level of speed, but for the five or 10%, they do,” he said.

There’s absolutely no evidence procured, nor will there be evidence procured for their claims,” said Zambrano Hill, who is the daughter of Alirio Zambrano and niece of Jose Luis Zambrano. Fort Bend County Judge KP George said the county stands with the fam- ilies and will work to get the message to local representatives. “[We] encourage our state depart- ment andWhite House to do every- thing possible in their power to push a safe and fast release of these men so they can return to their families,” George said.

the city to meet future development consumption needs. The plant expansion was also necessary for the city to move toward meeting the Fort Bend Subsidence District’s mandate for cities to convert 60% of their total water demand to alternative, or nongroundwater, supplies by 2025. Enprotec/Hibbs & Todd, the rm behind the design of the plant, said on its website the long-term plan for the plant is to have a daily capacity of 33 million gallons built in three phases. FBISD LAND PURCHASE FORT BEND ISD The Fort Bend ISD board of trustees has approved the district’s purchase of two tracts of land since September. The board’s action allows for district sta to conduct due diligence prior to the purchase of the land, said Amanda Bubela, FBISD’s director of external communications and media relations. In September, the board approved the purchase of 30 acres of land adjacent to Post Oak Boulevard and Hwy. 6. That site will be the home to FBISD’s Middle School No. 16, Bubela said. FBISD’s 2018 bond election allocated $19.7 million of the total $992.6 million for future land purchases. Bubela said money for the purchase and design of Middle School No. 16 was included in the 2018 bond, but funding for construction would likely come from a future bond. At its Feb. 10 meeting, the board approved the purchase of 16.24 acres of land in the Sienna master- planned community. This plot of land is for a future elementary school, Bubela said. Because this purchase is not yet nalized, the district has not released the exact location of the land.

MISSOURI CITY Missouri City is expanding its Regional Water Treatment Plant, located at 4655 1/2 Bees Creek Court, Missouri City. Once the expansion, which is considered Phase 2 of the project, is completed, the plant’s processing capacity will double from 10 million gallons per day to 20 million gallons per day. Construction on Phase 2 of the plant, which will cost $14 million to complete, began in March 2019, and city ocials said the expansion is on track to nish in September. Missouri City ocials said the expansion was required for MARCEL DISTRICT SUGAR LAND Marcel Group, the developer of the Marcel District, will nish exterior construction of the mixed-use development by April, Marcel Group founder Vernon Veldekens said in an email. After that, Marcel will start interior construction for the project located at the corner of University Boulevard and LJ Parkway. Marcel has soft opening plans for the fall. Announced tenants at Marcel District include Experience Fusion, Apex Executive Suites, Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Hometown Lender, Graciela’s Seafood, Graciela’s Mexican and Zoners Pizza, according to Veldekens. “SINCE THE PROJECT’S GROUNDBREAKING IN MAY 2019, TREMENDOUS PROGRESS HAS BEENMADE ONMARCEL DISTRICT.” VERNON VELDEKENS, MARCEL GROUP FOUNDER

THE CROSSING AT TELFAIR SUGAR LAND Rubicon Realty Group, the project developer for the Crossing at Telfair, is constructing two new pad sites at the intersection of Hwy. 90A and Hwy. 6 in Sugar Land. Since the fall, several businesses have opened in building No. 350 at the shopping center, including Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu, Lash Studio, Yummy Pho and Bo Ne 3 and Decadent: A Coee and Dessert Bar. Hertz, a car rental company, will be one of the rst tenants to move into building No. 400, which is empty, according to Rubicon leasing associate Thad Mai. The 400 building has 10,081 square feet still available. Mai said he is actively working on leases for several new tenants, including a tness center, oce space and a restaurant. Mai said the intersection is desirable for future tenants. “[Hwy.] 6 and [Hwy.] 90 are two major roads,” Mai said. “You have the Sugar Land community, but you also have the accessibility to other neighborhoods in the area that might want to come by.”
