MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Last month was National Preparedness Month in the United States, and the overriding theme for the month was, “Have a plan.” But the truth is too many of us don’t have a plan for when the unexpected occurs.
Emergency managers around the state continue the never-ending cycle of emergency preparedness planning. As hurricane season starts to wind down, jurisdictions across north and central Texas are starting to ramp up for winter weather.
WATER SAFETY AND AWARENESS EDUCATION
No part of Texas is immune from the potential for dangerous flash flooding, and every year public safety providers across Texas are injured in water-related incidents. The Texas Division of Emergency Management’s (TDEM) Life Safety Unit is doing what it can to reduce the risk to and increase the survivability of field responders during these events.
