Preparing Today for Tomorrow's Challenges
In an effort to better protect and prepare our community's residents and visitors, the Brazos County Department of Emergency Management has developed this website to provide information about getting prepared for emergencies and disasters in our County. There is information on sheltering in place or evacuation for a hazardous materials incident to links on family preparedness activities - don't forget to plan for your animals! - to information on disaster volunteer training and the emergency notification system.
