FORT BEND COUNTY, TX – On January 11, 2018, Fort Bend County Judge Bob Hebert participated in a Disaster Response and Recovery Panel at the Texas Conference of Urban Counties Education, Policy and Technology Conference in Corpus Christi. Judge Hebert shared his experience as Fort Bend County Emergency Management Director during Hurricane Harvey with member county officials from across the state. Harris County Judge Ed Emmett and Nueces County Judge Lloyd Neal also shared the panel.
County Judge Bob Hebert said, “It was obvious that although there was only one Harvey, the storm’s impact manifested its destruction across the disaster area in many different ways. Regardless of whether the damage was driven by the wind, storm surge or the rains, all three counties reinforced their commitment to continue to engage State and Federal agencies for the benefit of those who suffered loss.”
Fort Bend County is located in the Texas Southeast, immediately South and West of Harris County and the city of Houston. It is the home of over 750,000 people and is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States.
