Preparations for Friday, February 4
We urge you to stay home and off our roadways to allow essential and emergency vehicles to move about the Village.
The Public Services Department encourages everyone to stay off the roads during wintry weather. Please do not risk driving. We need our roads kept clear for emergency vehicles. Road crews will be spreading sand in areas that are prone to freeze. Please do not drive on any roads that are not safe, if you have to drive, please use caution. Road closings and other important information will be posted on our Active Advisories page and will be shared with radio station KVRE 92.9 FM.
At this time, these roads are closed. Again, avoid driving anywhere today.
- Fresno Road between Ponferrada Way and Carmona Road

If you have a water or sewer emergency, call the Water Treatment Plant at 501-922-1323.
At this time there are no power outages reported in Hot Springs Village, but conditions could change. Do not call the POA if you lose electricity. Instead, call your electric utility:

Entergy 800-368-3749 or 877-492-7238
All fire stations will be staffed and ready to respond to emergencies. If you have a fire emergency, call 911.

If you lose power at your home, and you have no neighbors with power on who can accommodate you during a power outage, you may go to one of our four fire stations. If you need transportation to a fire station or other warming center, call the non-emergency police numbers listed above.

“The firefighters did extremely well in the planning and preparation for the recent winter weather. These men strive to be successful in all they do and it showed in the past days. We have a good team that selflessly gives its all to Hot Springs Village and its members. Thank you to all the Fire Department staff. Job Well Done!” — Jason Miller, Fire Chief, Hot Springs Village
