The Borger Office of Emergency Management (Borger OEM) is responsible for public notifications in an emergency and coordination with incident commanders during large scale events. Emergency Management focuses on prevention, mitigation, response, and recovery to emergencies and disasters.
Emergency Management personnel from the City of Borger and Hutchinson County operate the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) located centrally in Borger. The EOC is a fully equipped station with multiple radar feeds, communications consoles, and area camera systems for monitoring weather conditions.
City and County emergency managers routinely publish information on Facebook and Twitter to help keep the area communities up to date on events. Emergency Management personnel are all full time employees, certified Texas peace officers, and arson investigators.
