Welcome to the Office of Emergency Management

The City of La Porte Office of Emergency Management (OEM) works with local industry and surrounding agencies to mitigate natural and man-made disasters. We encourage preparedness for the citizens of La Porte and those who work in our community by providing education on how to best prepare for all types of emergencies.

In addition, we work with organizations throughout the city to plan and train for emergency situations, as well as to coordinate response and recovery efforts when an emergency occurs. Most importantly, we help the citizens of La Porte and the surrounding communities recover when disaster strikes.

Emergency Preparedness Guide

In May 2019, the Local Emergency Planning Committee distributed the Emergency Preparedness Guide to residents of La Porte, Morgan's Point, and Shoreacres.  Click on the link below to download the guide.
