In its inaugural year, the Disaster Preparedness Committee will establish, develop, and implement disaster preparedness plans and resources for the Houston Bar Association to address natural and manmade disasters and other catastrophic emergencies affecting the Houston area community. The goal of the Committee is to coordinate HBA volunteers and affiliated organizations, legal service providers, law schools, and representatives of local/state government in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters and their economic repercussions through concerted legal assistance programs and advanced planning.
