EMERGENCY RESPONSE TO SEVERE COLD DISASTER
This is news that DG Billy Gray received from the Texas Lions Foundation and wishes to pass along to you.
Subject: Emergency Response to Severe Cold Disaster.
I have found some information from Governor Abbott’s office that on February 14th a Federal Declaration was made by the White House to give emergency assistance to the whole State in this situation.
The Governor’s statement read:
This Federal Emergency Declaration authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide emergency protective measures for mass care and sheltering and Direct Federal Assistance for all 254 counties in Texas.
“I thank President Biden for quickly issuing a Federal Emergency Declaration for Texas as we continue to respond to severe winter weather conditions throughout the state,” said Governor Abbott. “This disaster declaration provides Texas with additional resources and assistance that will help our communities respond to this winter weather.”
The Texas Lions Foundation stands ready to assist with the funds we have available.
