Abstracts of the presentations given on Tuesday, 24 July 2007, in Session 4 of the UCOWR Conference.


Texas Cooperative Extension’s (TCE) Emergency Management Program focuses on an “All Hazards” approach. An agency-wide steering committee has been developed to work with administration to facilitate the process. The agency has developed an internal structure in order to respond to disasters. TCE has petitioned the Governor’s Division of Emergency Management for a seat at the State Operations Center, trained County faculty on their role in Emergency Management, developed an agency output plan, developed a disaster related website, and organized Incident Resource Teams (IRTs) to provide resources to support hazardous incidents that affect Texas.
