Emergency Management

City Ordinance - Emergency Management

The City of Sweeny Office of Emergency Management was created on March 1, 1983 by the passing of City Ordinance No. 317.  To view the Emergency Management Ordinance, click here.

The City of Sweeny has an extensive Emergency Management Plan addressing the mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery phases of civil preparedness.  This plan has continually been updated since its inception in 1983. 

Homeland Security Concerns

Because of Homeland Security concerns, the City of Sweeny is evaluating its Emergency Management Plan and the release of information on this Web site.  The City of Sweeny embraces the idea of releasing public information on this Web site as a service to the city and the surrounding community.  However, in the post-9/11 era of homeland security and public safety, releasing certain sections of this Plan to the public may jeopardize the City's safety and its ability to effectively respond and defend the City in terrorist-based scenarios.

Sweeny is an unlikely target of terrorism, however, it can not be ruled out as a possibility, especially since one of the new ideas of extreme Islamic terrorists is to attack and reek havoc in smaller American cities where security is likely more relaxed than in metropolitan areas.

Emergency Management Plan

There are 23 major sections of our Emergency Management Plan.  Each section has been separated for easier navigation.  The documents in the sections are available in Microsoft Word format only.



The City of Sweeny has partnered with NTI Group, Inc. to provide Connect-CTY™, a  time-sensitive message delivery system used by authorized civic leaders to create and rapidly disseminate emergency messages to the City of Sweeny via telephone numbers stored in the notification database.
