A message from APWA leadership on Texas Power Outages
The American Public Works Association shares the concerns of many APWA members and the public regarding the ongoing power outages in the state of Texas. On behalf of the APWA Board of Directors, members and staff, our thoughts go out to those who are dealing with the localized response, and to those who are working around the clock to restore energy and water in their areas. When disasters hit, we are stronger together assisting one another.
In this spirit, APWA offers the following links to President Biden’s Emergency Disaster Declaration for Texas, the Texas Division of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Water Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC), the National Weather Service (NWS), and the APWA Emergency Management Peer Resource Directory. We know safety is always your highest priority, and that you take very seriously the responsibilities of disaster preparedness, response and recovery efforts upon which your communities depend. Stay safe!
