Emergency Management in Texas dates to 1951, with the passage of the Civil Protection Act by the Texas Legislature. The Texas Disaster Act of 1975 created the Governor’s Division of Emergency Management (DEM). The Emergency Management of today is a multifaceted comprehensive program for dealing with all large scale emergencies and disasters. The Mayor of each incorporated municipality and the County Judge of each county is designated as the Emergency Management Director for each political subdivision. As the Governor’s designated agents, the Mayor and County Judge may exercise the powers, on an appropriate local scale, granted the governor by the Texas Disaster Act of 1975. They may also designate a coordinator (EMC) to serve as an assistant. Political subdivisions may establish inter-jurisdictional agreements to manage and mutually benefit from local emergency management programs.
