State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry Local Government

The STEAR program was developed by the state of Texas to assist local governments with obtaining information on the needs of your citizens during an emergency event.  The program provides detailed information on citizens who may have disabilities and require additional assistance during an event or who have transportation needs.  The information can be used for preparedness and response activities.  This program is free to local governments and individuals.  If your jurisdiction would like to participate in this program, please fill out the Data Custodian Appointment Form found on this page and send to the e-mail address on the form.
