Emergency Management

**Public Health & Safety Information**

Your Horseshoe Bay Emergency Management Team is working around the clock to provide accurate information that identifies ways you can protect yourself and your families from COVID-19 and other viruses.  (Newest messages are located below and the newest or most relevant messages are on top.)


Fire, EMS, and PD crews are taking more precautionary measures as directed due to the known cases in the counties we serve per our Medical Directors.  Please keep in mind that even if you see us layered in PPE, it does not mean that the person we are interacting with has COVID-19.  This is an invisible enemy, so we protect ourselves from possible threats.  We thank you for understanding and your support during this time.

Stay informed — Register to get emergency warnings in your neighborhood by text, email or phone.  Click the link below, WarnCentralTexas.org,  to go to CAPCOG’s registration page.  CAPCOG’s current vendor for operating this emergency warning tool is EverBridge.  Formerly, it was CodeRed.

For the City of Horseshoe Bay, Emergency Management falls under the guidance of the Fire Chief. The Team plans and prepares for emergencies, educates the public about preparedness, develops volunteers and relationships, manages grant funding to improve homeland security and public safety capabilities, coordinates emergency response and recovery, supports planned events, and works with public and partner organizations to protect our whole community when it needs us the most.

If a disaster strikes in your community, you might not have access to food, water, or electricity for several days. You may think that you will have enough time to run to the grocery store, but stores quickly sell out of important supplies following emergency warnings. Unfortunately, about half of adults in the United States do not have the resources and plans in place for a possible emergency. Preparing emergency kits for your family is an important step in keeping them safe and healthy during a disaster.
