MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Most of the state has experienced warm temperatures so far this fall. The cold fronts that have made it across the state have brought welcome short bouts of cooler temperatures and a break from the stifling summer heat and humidity. Whether or not La Niña develops, we still need to prepare for winter weather.
TEXAS EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ASSISTANCE TEAM PROGRAM
The Texas Emergency Management Assistance Team (TEMAT) program is an initiative of the Governors and Texas Homeland Security 2017 – 2021 Strategic Plan. The TEMAT program centers on best practices shared from the local level during catastrophic events in Texas.
LA NINA UPDATE AND TEXAS WINTER OUTLOOK
La Niña occurs when there are unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific and off of the South American west coast. This usually occurs during the fall and winter months and has impacts across the Northern Hemisphere.
TEXAS INTRASTATE FIRE MUTUAL SYSTEM
The Texas A&M Forest Service helps support the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual System (TIFMAS) in many ways. Grant funding is available to local fire departments and recently three were selected to receive more than $700,000 in grants to purchase new wildland firefighting vehicles.
