DISASTER DISTRICT COMMITTEE (DDC)
  • As prescribed by Chapter 418 of the Texas Government Code, a disaster district committee consists of representatives of the state agencies, boards, commissions, and organized volunteer groups with membership on the Emergency Management Council.
  • The Highway Patrol commanding officer of each district serves as chair of the Disaster District Committee and reports to the assistant director of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) on matters relating to disasters and emergencies.
  • The Disaster District Committee chair is assisted by the Council representatives assigned to that district, who provide guidance, counsel, and administrative support as required. The Disaster District Committee chair serves as the authoritative liaison between the district’s local officials and the Jack Colley State Operations Center (SOC) during large-scale disasters or emergencies.

    • In their preparedness role, they assist local officials in carrying out emergency planning, training, and exercises, and developing emergency teams and facilities. They also teach a wide variety of emergency management training courses.
    • In their response role, they deploy to incident sites to assess damage, identify urgent needs, advise local officials regarding state assistance, and coordinate deployment of state emergency resources to assist local emergency responders.
