During this period BFR units were dispatched on several calls involving snakes inside homes. BFR units respond non-emergency to these types of calls and are often able to successfully relocate the snakes from homes into their natural habitat without injury. Some BFR apparatus are equipped with equipment that makes snake removal much easier (See picture below). If the snake is determined to be of the poisonous type or poses a risk to humans the immediate area is evacuated and Williamson County Animal Control is contacted.
