We are responsible for coordinating activities that occur before, during, and after a natural or man-made disaster. There are four critical phases to prepare for and recover from a disaster: mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. The information will better prepare homes and businesses for surviving any emergency event.

Irving Recertified as StormReady
On May 8 the Office of Emergency Management attended the City Council meeting to receive the StormReady recertification from the National Weather Service. Mark Fox, the Warning and Coordination Meteorologist, came out to present the recertification award.
StormReady is a nationwide program that helps communities better protect their citizens during severe weather.
StormReady communities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education and awareness. No community is storm proof, but StormReady can help communities save lives.
By recertifying, Irving is one of the 79 communities within the State of Texas who have received this certification.
