EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

Lockhart Fire & Rescue’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is charged with coordinating the city's Emergency Management program. Activities include developing emergency plans, operating warning systems, offering disaster preparedness training, conducting drills, and exercises,  and public education programs. The program operates through the four emergency management phases: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.  

The Texas Disaster Act of 1975 designates the mayor as the director of the local emergency management program. The mayor has designated the Fire Chief, Randy Jenkins, as the Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) to manage the day-to-day operations of the program. 

Emergency Operations Center (EOC)

The city operates an EOC at Police Headquarters located at 214 Bufkin Lane in response to an emergency or local disaster. The EOC is activated by designated personnel from city departments such as; Police, Fire, Administration and Public Works.
