Emergency Response Plan

The purpose of the Downtown Houston Emergency Response Plan is to minimize the potential human loss or injury and property damage from a disaster or emergency situation, reduce losses and interruptions to business, resident and governmental activity, and to function in concert with regional emergency management actions.

The Houston Downtown Management District (HDMD) recognizes the need for a centralized coordination point in the event of an emergency. Our plan describes the preparation and response scenarios for multiple potential emergency situations and it describes the roles of property owners and managers, HDMD, the Houston Police Department, Houston Fire Department, Public Works & Engineering Department and other entities.
