Emergency Info

We're here to help. The Houston Downtown Management District (HDMD) recognizes the need for a centralized coordination point in the event of an emergency, and have developed a Downtown Emergency Response Plan that describes the preparation and response scenarios for multiple potential emergency situations and it describes the roles of property owners and managers, HDMD, the Houston Police Department, Houston Fire Department, City of Houston Public Works & Engineering Department, Harris County and other entities.

In the event of emergency incidents in the Downtown Houston area, this website will have updates with the latest information.
