Emergency Preparedness

Overview

The FEBs primary role during emergencies is to provide sound and timely information to the federal community regarding federal operations, weather conditions and safety highlights. This service is provided on a 24-7 basis.

The DFW Federal Executive Board provides an opportunity for Federal, State & Local emergency  management professionals in North Central Texas to network, discuss issues and presentations on matters important to the group. The FEB coordinates activities that enhance lasting partnerships and proactive interagency/intergovernmental Emergency Preparedness initiatives through advocacy, communication, and collaboration. The DFW FEB develops and/or maintains active relationships with Federal, state and local emergency managers, public safety and law enforcement officials to enhance preparedness education, exchange ideas and develop coordinated approaches to regional issues.
