Houston area residents should not share or copy and paste an alleged number for the National Guard, even if intentions are noble. 
A message reading "The National Guard is being deployed to our Texas area. If you find yourself in a state of emergency. Call 1-800-527-3907. Please copy, paste or share!" is making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter. 
That phone number is for an insurance company based out of state and not a number to an actual governmental entity.
