Get Ready Now for Potential Tropical Weather in Texas

Denton, TX – Texans are urged to take steps now to get ready in advance of Tropical Storm Don that could soon impact parts of the state.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Region 6 office is continuing to work with its partners at the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to prepare for the possibility of landfall. In coordination with state officials, FEMA has pre-positioned some supplies - such as blankets, cots and meals - and personnel in several locations to help with emergency response coordination and other needs.

"We will continue to be proactive and support our state partners," said FEMA Region 6 Administrator Tony Russell. "We also urge everyone to make sure their personal preparedness efforts are underway now. Have a plan; put together an emergency kit; stay informed by listening to your local officials for instructions and updated emergency information."

Tools and resources are available online to help you prepare for, respond to and recover from any type of disaster. Visit www.ready.gov, www.listo.gov or the TDEM website for more information.
