Disaster Management

Being prepared for the unexpected brings peace of mind. Build a kit with the essentials your family and pets will need if you must shelter in place or evacuate.

Create a communication plan with your family.

Your family may not be together when a disaster happens. The best way to keep everyone safe is to make an emergency plan ahead of time.

Visit Drivetexas.org for flooded roads and conditions.

Review evacuation routes.


Find a local shelter, e.g. Red Cross Shelters.

Flood Insurance

Purchase or renew a flood insurance policy. Homeowners policies do not cover flooding. It typically takes up to 30 days for a policy to go into effect, so the time to buy is well before a disaster.
