On May 2, EHCMA hosted the 2018 EHCMA Industry Hurricane Workshop at the Pasadena Convention Center. More than 230 people from various federal, state and local agencies attended the event, including the U.S. Coast Guard, The National Weather Service, City of Pasadena Office of Emergency Management, Harris County Office of Emergency Management, additional emergency response agencies and representatives from EHCMA member companies.
The event reviewed “lessons learned” from Hurricane Harvey, Harris County’s resources and emergency plans, and EHCMA member plant procedures before, during and after the storm.
The keynote speaker for the event was Harris County Judge Ed Emmett with special guests Jeff Wagner, Mayor of Pasadena, Bob Bradshaw, EHCMA Chairman and Jack Morman, Commissioner for Harris County Precinct 2.
The goal of this industry event was to revisit and review emergency management plans ahead of the 2018 hurricane season, beginning on June 1. As part of EHCMA’s mission to promote the health, safety, security, environmental and economic well-being of the industry and community, we continuously work to protect our coast and communities.
