MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
As we move into hurricane season, I would like to challenge all of you to consider several ways to streamline coordination of local and state response. I want to hear what you think about these concepts and to collect additional suggestions you may have to offer.
IERSP UPDATE: STATE RESOURCES IDENTIFIED
The recent NLE 11 (National Level Exercise 2011) is an example of how the Interstate Emergency Response Support Plan would be implemented as area states deploy personnel and bring in resources to assist with disasters.
ABCs OF FIRE MANAGEMENT ASSISTANCE GRANTS
Fire Management Assistant Grants, often referred to as FMAGs, are one of the main sources of federal assistance to state and local governments for wildfires. These grants support “mitigation, management and control” of fires.
AGENCY PARTNERS: TxDOT AND WILDFIRES
The Texas Department of Transportation's dynamic message signs are only one of the ways the agency supports statewide efforts to fight Texas wildfires. Learn what types of assistance TxDOT provides.
