Emergency Management

The mission of the San Marcos Office of Emergency Management is to provide effective coordination to create a culture of preparedness that sustains a resilient community in the face of natural and man-made hazards. To achieve this mission, we work to build the city's preparedness and response capability and coordinate with regional, state, and federal partners. We conduct regular training and exercises, in accordance with federal standards, to test and improve our ability to protect against the unexpected. We are engaged with the community to ensure the citizens of San Marcos are prepared, informed, and capable of responding to and recovering from disasters.
