Hurricane Season Is Here! Are You Prepared?
Please make plans to attend the GHLA Membership Meeting & Luncheon on Wednesday, July 27th. Our featured presenters include Garret Foskit and Charlie Kelly with Galveston County Emergency Management as well as Peter Davis with the Park Board of Trustees. The panel will discuss the County's emergency response plan as well as how you protect your assets during hurricane seasons.
The Galveston County Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the development and implementation of a comprehensive emergency program for the Island. The Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) is responsible for coordinating all the components of the emergency management system in the city. These components consist of fire, police, civil defense effort, emergency medical service, public works, volunteers, and other groups contributing to the management of major emergencies or disasters. The EMC performs and exercises other such functions as are necessary to promote and secure public safety and protection within the territorial limits of the City of Galveston.
