Providing Disaster Assistance


Local authorities are the first to respond to the needs of disaster survivors. Disasters can significantly reduce their ability to provide services. State and federal assistance may be available after a disaster to help by coordinating and managing disaster behavioral health preparedness, response and recovery efforts for Texas before, during and after a local, state or federally declared emergency or disaster. These services include coordinating stress management and crisis counseling services at the local level.
