Office of Emergency Management

Our office is proud to serve the residents of Polk County, Texas. However, you may ask yourself “What do they do when there is no hurricane?” Of course, we do respond to hurricanes by opening shelters, coordinating resources, and assisting the leaders of Polk County to rebuild our community after a disaster; however, we do much more.

Over the past fourteen years, Polk County has had six Presidential Disaster Declarations which include Hurricane Rita in 2005, Hurricane Ike in 2008, the 2015 Floods, the 2016 Floods, Hurricane Harvey in 2017, and the October 2018 Floods (Trinity River Flooding).
