  18. WebEOC & TWIRP • Web-based Crisis Information Management System for decision-making before, during, and after disasters • Texas WebEOC Interoperability Project (TWIRP) • Provision of interoperable communications • Consistency throughout the state • Improvement of application from Lessons Learned

  19. Texas ETN • Texas ETN = Emergency Tracking Network • Activated by TDEM/DSHS during statewide emergencies • Connects 4 disparate standalone systems into an integrated statewide tracking system • EMTrack + EvacCenter + SNCA + WebEOC

  20. State ESF-8 Resources • Department of State Health Services (DSHS) • Lead agency for ESF-8 coordination in Texas per Texas Emergency Management Plan, Annex H • Texas Disaster Medical System (TDMS) • DSHS Public Health Deployable Teams • Emergency Medical Task Force (EMTF)
