By knowing your vulnerabilities and what actions you should take, the effects of a disaster may be reduced within your city/entity. During an average year, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and other disasters cause major damage, loss of life and injuries to Texas cities and entities. The Texas Municipal League Intergovernmental Risk Pool Loss Prevention Department has identified useful information to assist members should an emergency situation arise within your community.
