FEMA Region 6 urges people in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico to get ready for another round of winter weather

DENTON, Texas – After weathering recent winter storms, people in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico are encouraged to prepare now for another round of snow and ice.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Region 6 office is continuing to work with all of those states to help them recover from the last round of storms and get ready for the upcoming inclement weather. At the request of state officials, FEMA has pre-positioned some supplies and located liaison officers in Oklahoma, Arkansas and New Mexico to help with emergency response coordination and other needs.

“We will continue to be proactive, making sure to support our state partners,” said FEMA Region 6 Administrator Tony Russell. “We also urge you to get ready – have a plan, put together an emergency kit and stay informed by listening to your local officials for instructions and updated emergency information.”

Tools and resources are available online to help you prepare for, respond to and recover from any type of disaster. Visit www.Ready.gov or the Spanish language site www.Listo.gov.
