The East Texas Council of Governments (ETCOG) provides a mass notification system for the East Texas region as a part of its public safety program that allows ETCOG to partner with cities and counties in East Texas to send messages quickly notifying citizens about emergency situations.
Over the past few years we as Americans have experienced both natural and man made disasters. In an effort to better inform the community the Northeast Texas Public Health District has compiled 18 Emergency Preparedness Topics and formatted the information to be friendly to deaf, blind, and limited sight populations. The information is in video and downloadable document format for public use. There is No Charge for use of the materials posted on this website.
Integrating public health preparedness into the community is paramount to the community becoming resilient before, during, and after disasters. We serve the community by planning for, responding to, and assisting communities in recovering from Public Health related events. Our hope is that providing innovative avenues for information exchange will not only prepare the community before an event , but also assist the community with delivery of resources during an event, and expedite the recovery from an event.
