OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

Disaster Drill

About Us

An office that works with McLennan EOC LoginCounty, disaster drills are scheduled regularly to test response times and efficiency in the case of a major disaster such as a tornado, plane crash, and other circumstances that may involve a large number of injuries or deaths. The team includes all area police departments, both paid and volunteer fire departments, ambulance services, Waco Transit, and area hospitals.

In the case of a major disaster, the Emergency Operations Center will establish a central command post where decisions can be made in a unified manner.
