Emergency Management

The mission of the San Marcos Office of Emergency Management is to create a culture of preparedness that sustains a resilient community in the face of natural and man-made hazards. We strive to enhance the city’s preparedness and response capabilities and coordinate with regional, state, and federal partners. We conduct regular training and exercises to test and improve our ability to respond to and recover from the unexpected. We strive to ensure the citizens of San Marcos are prepared, informed, and capable of responding to and recovering from all hazards.
