Emergency Preparedness in Kerrville



Emergencies and disasters can strike quickly and without warning and can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home.

The City of Kerrville has managed and maintained an emergency management plan since July 26, 1983. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act signed into law on November 23, 1988; amended the Disaster Relief Act of 1974. This law states municipalities and government entities must develop emergency management programs, and plans to qualify for State and Federal assistance during periods of disaster.

The City’s current emergency management plan consists of a basic plan and twenty two hazard specific annexes. The annexes address management of functions ranging from Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement to Shelter & Mass Care, Evacuation and Donations Management. The Basic Plan and each annex are updated at five year intervals as required by the State of Texas. Since 1983 the City of Kerrville has met the legal requirements in its emergency preparedness, and planning efforts as defined by the State of Texas.

Our current plan is legal, up-to-date and has been adopted and approved by the State of Texas. Our current plan is also exercised on a quarterly basis. Below is a highlight of our past exercises and public meetings.
