Welcome to the Emergency Management
The City of Waco, McLennan County, and surrounding cities have created the Waco-McLennan
County Emergency Management Team in order to respond to emergencies with a team
effort when necessary.
They regularly schedule disaster training drills to test their response time and
efficiency in the case of a major disaster such as a tornado, plane crash, and other
circumstances that may involve a large number of injuries or deaths. The team includes
all area police departments, both paid and volunteer fire departments, ambulance
services, Waco Transit, and area hospitals.
In the case of a major disaster, the Emergency Operations Center, a central command
post, will be established where decisions can be made in a unified manner. For more
information, contact Frank Patterson, Emergency Operations Coordinator at (254)
