Emergency Management

 

Overview

In 2006 the City of Navasota created the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) under the Navasota Fire Department. At that time an Emergency Management Plan was written and approved by the Governor’s Division of Emergency Management (GDEM) at the Intermediate level. Before this creation, the City fell under the Grimes County Emergency Management Plan.

Funding

The primary source of funding comes from the City’s general fund. OEM also receives federal grants through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Since 2003, the City has received over $300,000 from DHS. These funds have been used to assist with interoperable communications systems, security systems, mobile command, and equipment for the Emergency Operations Center.

Cooperation

The OEM works closely throughout the year with the other OEMs within the Brazos Valley and GDEM, planning and preparing for emergencies such as hurricanes, tornadoes, train derailments, and other disasters.
