Emergency Management Committee
The Emergency Management Committee has been established by City of Weston Lakes Resolution 03-09. The Committee provides trained functional volunteers to man the EOC, to assume functional responsibilities in the face of an emergency situation. A Committee member may act as an incident manager in the event that the emergency is local and totally within the members expertise or community function. For example, in a water or sanitation emergency the President of the Fort Bend County MUD 81 may, in fact, act as the incident manager for that emergency using the resources of the MUD to respond to the needs to minimize, respond and recover from any incident. The composition of the Committee includes the City Emergency Management Coordinator; the Assistant Emergency Management Coordinator; the President of the Fort Bend County MUD 81, the President of the Weston Lakes Property Owners Association; a Commissioner of the Fort Bend County Emergency Services District # 4; and the Weston Lakes Country Club Manager. The remaining members of the Committee act in a supporting role to be used as directed by the Incident Manager. The Committee is augmented by appointed volunteers from the community to provide manning within the EOC, to form assessment teams, and to provide response capabilities to the community on an as needed basis. These volunteers are appointed by each member of the City Council and the Mayor based upon the tools, talents, and desires they bring to the Emergency Management process. Additional Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Citizen Support Team (VCST) volunteers will augment the Emergency Management committee, the Emergency Operation Center, and will work with other community volunteers with specific expertise who will assist in emergency situations.
