City of Bastrop Emergency Management 

The City of Bastrop Emergency Management Team works year round to ensure we are providing adequate resources, time sensitive-information and critical protection because we believe that's our job.  It is our privilege to keep residents informed, prepared and most importantly safe in the event of an emergency of any type or size. We also work hard to plan recovery efforts and identify resources in the event our 

citizens need them. We proudly partner with countless local, regional, state and federal agencies to ensure we have the most accurate information and a strong network of resources during an emergency.
