Urban Shield

Urban Shield Volunteers,

On behalf of the men and women of TEXSAR and our partners, the Texas Maritime Regiment, Austin/Travis County Homeland Security and Emergency Management, please accept our heartfelt “Thank You” for your participation in Operation Urban Shield on December 01, 2012.  Without your wonderful gifts of time, patience and your great enthusiasm this exercise could not have been accomplished.

This one of a kind full scale exercise provided TEXSAR, our partners and area first responders with valuable lessons and information which will contribute to all of us being more effective in the future to help keep our communities both prepared and safe.  The lessons we all learned are being converted into policy and procedure changes that better utilize our many area resources.  (You can view links to local media coverage here.)

We hope the Holiday Season is a joyful and happy time for all.  Please do not hesitate to contact TEXSAR if there is anything we can do for you or your organization.  Thank you.

In service to our communities,

Greg Pyles
