MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Well before the dog days of August arrived, much of Texas had already endured unusually hot weather. Even as flood recovery was underway, many regions across the state began to experience record high temperatures as well as record extended periods at record high temperatures.
VOLUNTEER AGENCY LIAISONS
You may have wondered, what is a voluntary agency liaison (VAL)? Perhaps you've heard the words before or have seen "VALs" at meetings, but you are not sure what they do. With the number of disasters that have occurred in Texas over the last 12 months, the cadre of voluntary agency liaisons has been very busy, so we thought we'd let you know what they do and what they have to know in order to help the communities they serve.
PARTNER AGENCY: TEXAS HISTORICAL COMMISSION
The Texas Historical Commission (THC), the state agency for historic preservation, is known for its range of programs preserving historic and cultural resources in Texas, such as the Texas state historical marker program and Texas Main Street Program.
