Homeland Security and Emergency Management


The Round Rock Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) is committed to serving the community before, during and after a major emergency or disaster through effective coordination of city departments, partnering agencies and organizations and encouraging community preparedness.

In addition to city and county resources, this web page provides links and information for resources including the Emergency Notification System Registration (ENS), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other helpful sites in preparation of or recovery from disasters.

Though we are still in the midst of a pandemic, there are other hazards we need to be aware of and know how to stay safe. We still have to be prepared for flash flooding, wildfires and severe thunderstorms! Learn more at ready.gov/plan and update your plan due to COVID-19. Be sure to pack cloth face coverings (for everyone over 2 years old) and disinfectant wipes/spray in your emergency bag, and check your sheltering plan.
