For Immediate Release

Today, our Emergency Management staff talked with the Texas Division of Emergency Management and the City of Dallas and City of Irving Offices of Emergency Management as well as others regarding the earthquakes that have been occurring in Dallas County.

In Dallas County, we use an “All Hazards Approach” to emergency response and preparedness which includes earthquake planning.  This week our emergency management staff will conduct a conference call with SMU and city emergency managers to discuss technical information and develop additional guidance to better ensure our plans and procedures are up-to-date and specific to this type of hazard.
