2016 Texas Emergency Management Conference

Last week, a few of our staff and many of our colleagues from around the state attended the 2016 Texas Emergency Management Conference, in San Antonio.  Texas is no stranger to disasters, natural or man-made.  The goal was to stay on top of best practices, new technologies, and make sure that the first time we meet our response partners is not on the scene of a disaster.
