The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is situated in the La Porte Police Department building, located at 3001 North 23rd Street. La Porte OEM works from a state of the art EOC facility.
The emergency management staff consists of 3 people and operates with the support of other departments. Along with responding to emergencies and disasters, the emergency management staff plans and prepares for disasters before they happen in order to lessen the impact on the community. This is a coordinated effort between our office, surrounding jurisdictions, industry, and many various organizations, such as the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).
