Ask The Mayor

 

Mayor Hal Richards

Q - Who is in charge of Emergency Management or home land security in case of evacuations, etc. ?

 

A. In the State of Texas the Mayor of a City is the person responsible in case of an emergency. As in most cities, the Mayor designates a professional staff person to coordinate Emergency Management. In Terrell, the Fire Chief is currently in charge of Emergency Management. Under the City's Emergency Management Plan, Annex E addresses evacuation issues. This Annex is the responsibility of the Police Department.

 

In facilities such as a hospital, where patients are dependent on caregivers, the hospital is responsible for patient transportation and for arranging for a receiving facility.

 

If a disaster strikes with limited or no warning, and there are injuries within the facility, then the patients would be transported, as recommended by the Medical personnel responding to the incident, to an appropriate facility to treat the injuries.

 

If you do not have this information from our emergency management plan, you can contact Chief Jim Harper at City Hall (972-551-6600). He can provide this and any other information that will assist you in your emergency planning.

 

Thank you for your question.

 

Sincerely,

 

Hal Richards, Mayor
