Fayette County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (FCOEM) provides for the safety of Fayette County residents through emergency preparedness, response and recovery. FCOEM serves as the coordinating point for disaster preparedness, mitigation, as well as response and recovery capabilities for Fayette County, in cooperation with the County’s various municipal governments, Emergency Medical Services, ten (10) Volunteer Fire Departments and nonprofit and volunteer first response organizations.
Fayette County uses Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) Regional Notification System to notify residents about specific emergencies. To receive the notification system’s messages by phone, email and text, cell phone users should register at WarnCentralTexas.org. If you have a landline, you are automatically registered. Countywide major emergency information is posted at https://www.co.fayette.tx.us/ or https://fayettecountyems.org/, and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/FayetteTx, www.facebook.com/Fayette-County-Sheriffs-Office-Texas-Sheriff-Keith-Korenek-102937705536588 and www.facebook.com/FayetteCountyEMS/. These agencies do not monitor social media post 24/7.
If you require emergency assistance, call 911. Do not post emergency requests or send emergency messages to County social media accounts.
