Home to the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center since 1998, TEEX has been at the forefront of preparing the emergency response community to respond to, manage and recover from large-scale terrorist incidents, natural disasters and public health emergencies. TEEX also led the initiative to form Texas Task Force 1, both a state and national urban search and rescue team, and established the state's first swiftwater rescue strike team.

The Texas Engineering Extension Service develops a skilled and trained workforce that enhances public safety, security, and economic growth of the state and the nation through training, technical assistance, and emergency response.

The Texas Engineering Extension Service will be recognized as a service oriented agency that improves the lives of people by helping them provide safe communities and economic opportunity.

Wildfire and emergency response

Forest Resource Protection strives to prevent, mitigate and suppress wildfires and other natural disasters that endanger lives, property and the state’s natural resources. Forest Resource Protection is divided into five broad departments: prevention and mitigation, predictive services, planning and preparedness, local capacity building, and incident response. These departments work together to prepare, prevent, mitigate and respond to disasters as quickly as possible.



Texas Division of Emergency Management

The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) coordinates the state emergency management program, which is intended to ensure the state and its local governments respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters, and implement plans and programs to help prevent or lessen the impact of emergencies and disasters.

TDEM implements programs to increase public awareness about threats and hazards, coordinates emergency planning, provides an extensive array of specialized training for emergency responders and local officials, and administers disaster recovery, hazard mitigation, and homeland security grant programs in the State of Texas.
