Emergency Management

Fire Chief/ Emergency Management Coordinator  Dean Spencer

The primary responsibility of the Office of Emergency Management is the development and integration of written procedures to proactively address natural and man-made disasters, including acts of terror. This is accomplished through the evaluation and implementation of emergency management plans in compliance with state and federal regulations. In 2006, the City of Webster adopted the Harris County Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan, a multijurisdictional plan that adheres to those regulations. This plan is updated every five years, and allows for each local entity to add specific mitigations that fit within their needs. It is Webster’s goal to implement plans that allow the City to prepare for, prevent, respond to, and recover from disasters.

Special Healthcare or Transportation Needs? 

Call the State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry (STEAR)
Do you or anyone you know need some assistance during times of an emergency event? The state of Texas presents the STEAR program. The STEAR program is a free registry that provides local emergency planners and emergency responders with additional information on the needs in their community.

Register before a storm is threatening by dialing 2-1-1 or visit the STEAR website to register online. Operators will register those requiring special assistance. As a storm approaches, an assessment and evacuation plan will be determined.
