Who We Are
By State Law the Mayor is the Director of Emergency Management and must appoint an Emergency Management Coordinator to carry out preparedness and response coordination. The Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) leads the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and reports to the Assistant City Manager of Community Services. The EMC is supported by a full-time Emergency Management Specialist. The OEM is responsible for maintenance of the Outdoor Warning System, City-Wide Drills and Exercises, four grants per fiscal year, and keeping over 20 emergency plans updated and within state-compliance.
Prior to 2007, the responsibilities of emergency management were assigned to a Division Chief of the Lewisville Fire Department. In 2007 the City hired it's first professional Emergency Management Coordinator who reported to the Lewisville Fire Chief. In 2014 The City reorganized and moved the Office of Emergency Management to a stand-alone department and hired an Emergency Management Specialist. In 2017 the OEM briefly moved under Neighborhood Services before moving back to a stand-alone department. Lewisville OEM has helped coordinate or respond to over 25 major incidents since 2000. Some incidents include Hurricanes Ike, Gustav, and Harvey.
