Emergency Management

Harris County never stops preparing for the next big emergency. One of County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s first accomplishments in office was to commission an independent review of the County’s emergency response systems to continuously improve, identify, and fill in the gaps when it comes to responding to future disasters. In response to this review, Judge Hidalgo has directed agencies to implement numerous improvements, including improving air monitoring and information sharing and working with first responder teams from across the region to prepare for and plan for the worst.

Key accomplishments include:

  • Oversaw the revamp of ReadyHarris.com, Harris County’s comprehensive tool for emergency information for residents on everything from severe flooding and hazardous material incidents to active shooter incidents and COVID-19.

  • Commissioned a gap analysis of emergency response systems to continuously improve, identify, and fill gaps when it comes to responding to future disasters. In response to this review, Judge Hidalgo has directed agencies to implement improvements, including improved air monitoring and information sharing.

My campaign does not accept contributions from people who do business with the county. This makes fundraising more difficult, but it ensures my priorities are the voters’ priorities.
