AUSTIN -- At the request of the State of Florida and through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, the State of Texas today approved sending resources for disaster relief in preparation for Hurricane Matthew. These resources include Texas A&M Forest Service All-Hazards Incident Management Teams, which currently consist of 30 personnel and may be augmented as the situation develops. Other Texas state agencies are on stand-by to respond to any further requests from impacted areas.

Additionally, Governor Abbott has called Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia and Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina to offer any assistance as their states prepare to deal with Hurricane Matthew.

The Emergency Management Assistance Compact is a state-to-state mutual aid system where the requesting state is responsible for the reimbursement of mission costs. For more information, visit

CPS does not fall under Emergency Management Assistance Compact, so the Governor does not get a say in that movement.

CPS Energy is also preparing to send crews to the areas hit by Hurricane Matthew.
