State of Tx Emergency Assistance Registry (STEAR)
What to Expect from Wise County:
Registering yourself in the STEAR registry DOES NOT guarantee that you will receive a specific service during an emergency. Information from the registry will be used by the Wise County Office of Emergency Management staff to direct services to those needing assistance. However, emergency services may take some time to get to your location or make contact with you via phone. You should take steps to be self-sufficient until emergency services contact you. Some examples include having back-up emergency equipment, spare batteries, small power generators, emergency contact information for caregivers, etc. In the event of an emergency that impacts you, always call 9-1-1 immediately if you need assistance; do not expect emergency responders to contact you first.
For more information on how Wise County will use information in the STEAR registry, contact the Wise County Office of Emergency Management at 940-627-5870.
