The Emergency Management Plan defines who does what, when, where, and how, in order to:
• mitigate the effects of a hazard,
• prepare for measures to be taken which will minimize damage,
• respond during emergencies and provide whatever aid and assistance is necessary,
• establish a recovery system in order to return the community to its normal state of affairs.
We strive to accomplish this through a continuing program of preparation for emergencies, education to the public about preparedness, coordination of emergency response and recovery, and collection and distribution of emergency information.
Emergency Alerting System (EAS)
In an emergency, San Augustine County has the ability to alert its residents by the use of the Emergency Alerting System (EAS). In an emergency situation, programming is interrupted and information is automatically broadcasted via radio stations and all cable television systems to provide verbal and visual emergency information.
