Lubbock Emergency Services Prepare For Disaster

The Department of Health and Human Services wants Lubbock to be prepared in case of emergencies. So much so, that it is giving the city extra money to do that.

"Lubbock has been funded and identified as a metropolitan medical response city and with that money, we're trying to enhance communication in the county and the city," said Mary Croyle, an Emergency Management Specialist the fund will allow Lubbock to purchase radios for the Aerocare helicopters.

Croyle says it is crucial that the city communicate with Aerocare during emergencies because the helicopters can get from one place to another very quickly. The emergency operations center will also provide Lubbock county DPS troopers with radios in their cars in another effort to make communication faster and easier.
