President's Message

April 3, 2014

It is with a heavy heart that, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Emergency Management Association of Texas, I express our deepest sympathies for the victims of the event at Fort Hood, their families, and indeed the entire Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood area as they respond to another senseless occurrence of this kind and magnitude. I know that every member of our organization stands in solidarity with the men and women in uniform, the responders and support staff, and the health and medical professionals who have been and will continue to respond to and recover from this tragedy.
Our great state and the public safety professionals who help make it such have once again been called to service in support of one another. Let us remain focused on that charge, supporting our friends and colleagues so they know the road to recovery and the path to healing are not ones they travel alone.

Jeb B. Lacey, CEM, TEM 


March 2014

First, on behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you to those who attended the 6th Annual EMAT Symposium in San Marcos!  It was a great event, with representatives of every level of government and the private sector coming together to learn from each other!  A special thanks also to our Conference Committee, Co-Chaired by Director Dee Harrison (At-Large) and Director Cindy Mohat (Region 1) for a job well-done!
In case you didn’t make the Symposium, our Awards Banquet was a great success, highlighted by the presentation of the President’s Award to Sarah Somers (Grayson County OEM) for her work with the 83rd Legislature!  Be sure to check the Awards Committee page in the coming weeks for a full recap of the awards given this year!
As always, thank you for supporting EMAT!

Jeb B. Lacey, CEM, TEM
