On May 16-19, 2017 I had an opportunity to attend my very first Texas Emergency Management Conference hosted by the Texas Department of Public Safety Texas Division of Emergency Management in Austin Texas.
I was honored to be selected as one of the three volunteer Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) members to attend on a grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to the Lubbock County LEPC. Other LEPC members in attendance were Gary Harrold, Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) Lubbock County Liaison Officer, and Jody James, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Lubbock.
