Texas DPS Hosts Annual Emergency Management Conference

"As a large and geographically diverse state, Texas faces the full gamut of public safety threats, including severe weather and natural or manmade disasters, and preparedness is our number-one defense against such emergencies," said Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw.

The Texas Department of Public Safety's Texas Division of Emergency Management is hosting its annual conference through Friday at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. About 2,500 public- and private-sector emergency management professionals are attending the 2016 Texas Emergency Management Conference to participate in workshops, training sessions, and an expo.

"As a large and geographically diverse state, Texas faces the full gamut of public safety threats, including severe weather and natural or manmade disasters, and preparedness is our number-one defense against such emergencies," said DPS Director Steven McCraw. "This conference is an outstanding opportunity for our first responders, local officials, and emergency management professionals to share ideas and receive the latest training that is so crucial to protecting Texans and providing effective emergency management."

Conference participants include representatives from local, state, and federal emergency management; law enforcement; border security and port security; transportation and cyber security; firefighters; emergency medical personnel; state military forces; and others.
