Hays County bolsters emergency preparedness with public safety center

Date: 2021-10-06 12:00:00

In a decade of unprecedented natural disasters and a nearly two-year coronavirus pandemic, Hays County officials are consolidating public safety resources not only for better emergency preparedness but also to keep up with growth and the way people communicate. 

From flash flood warnings to coronavirus vaccine clinic dates and everything in between, local authorities have upgraded the way they get the information to residents, and with a central command center set to open in 2022, the county has never been more prepared.  

Kyle broke ground in September on a $37 million public safety center, allowing for the expansion of the Police Department. The building also will have space for an emergency operations center that will serve as a hub for surrounding counties and first responders.
