Andrews County Office of Emergency Management (OEM)
Andrews County Office of Emergency Management’s (OEM) mission is to minimize loss of life and personal injury, and damage to property and the environment from disasters by maintaining an Emergency Management program that addresses preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery for all hazards, in close coordination with the City of Andrews, state and federal agencies. We strive to accomplish this through a continuing program of outreach, coordination, planning, training and exercising, for all hazards and for all four phases of emergency management -- preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.
Local Emergency Management
The County Judge of each county and the Mayor of each incorporated municipality is designated as the Emergency Management Director for each such political subdivision. As the Governor’s designated agents, the County Judge and Mayor may exercise the powers, on an appropriate local scale, granted the Governor by the Texas Disaster Act of 1975.
