Preparedness Is Key

By Staff | Dec 12, 2018

We are in awe of the selection of equipment Tyler County has at its Office of Emergency Management headquarters. We certainly hope it is never needed, but it certainly puts our minds at ease, knowing these resources are available if the unimaginable would happen.

We would be remiss if we didn’t applaud all of those who have worked so diligently to ensure we are so prepared – OEM Director Tom Cooper, the county commission, industry-related companies who have made donations.

Read our LEPC story on this week’s front page. The story makes mention of several grants for which the county applies. The grant application process is not easy. We can imagine it is rather tedious and filled with paperwork. Yet the officials behind the scenes at our county’s agencies work hard to try to make sure we have what we need. We are certainly blessed to have folks in our county who invest so much time and work into keeping us safe.
