Bastrop County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) provides for the safety of Bastrop County residents through emergency preparedness and response. OEM serves as the coordinating point for disaster preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery capabilities for Bastrop County in cooperation with the County’s municipal governments and special district, nonprofit and volunteer first response organizations.
Bastrop County uses the CAPCOG Regional Notification System to notify residents about specific emergencies. Cell phone users must register their phones at WarnCentralTexas.org to receive those messages by phone, email and/or text. Countywide major emergency information is posted at http://www.co.bastrop.tx.us/page/em.home. Bastrop County does not monitor social media posts.
If you require emergency assistance, call 911. Do not post emergency requests or send emergency messages to County social media accounts.
