Big Spring has disaster response plan

April 14, 2011

Hurricanes and tsunamis may not be on the list of disasters likely to occur in West Texas, but it doesn't mean there are no emergency situations or damaging factors.

Big Spring, as small and secluded as it is, has an emergency plan set in place — almost 900 pages of preparation and procedure, to be exact.

According to Big Spring Police Department Lt. Terry Chamness, emergency management coordinator, the state provides guidelines and each county sets up its own emergency response plans.

“We aren't dealing with the same problems Houston, Dallas or San Antonio are,” Chamness said. “Therefore we have plans that fit disasters we would see in our area.”
