This is the Official page of Johnson County Emergency Management
Our goal at Johnson County's Office of Emergency management is to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from the effects of disasters, be they natural disasters, such as tornadoes or floods or man made problems such as chemical spills. The County Judge is charged by stature with responsibility for emergency management planning and operations. Most departments within Johnson County have emergency functions in addition to their normal duties and play key roles in our emergency operations strategy. All departments work together to coordinate a service and prepare for an emergency or disaster. The County is also privileged to have a Local Emergency Planning Committee (L.E.P.C.). This is a voluntary organization dedicated to improving responses to emergencies in Johnson County. The membership is made of leaders from Public Safety agencies, business, and industry. Stephanie Parker is acting Chairman. Emergency Management also manages the Cities Readiness program for Johnson County which is a program of the Dept of State Health Services. This is a program that will provide medicine to the citizens of Johnson County if and when a pandemic event breaks out or a terrorism biological attack hits our country

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued to include Johnson County until 4 a.m. We will be monitoring the weather over the next several hours and will bring you any updates.
Good morning JoCo!
We added 8 yesterday, and 5 were released.
Today is our graphics day so those are attached as well.
I hope y’all are staying safe and well!
Happy Friday, JoCo!
Here's a weather update for the rainy weekend. Best chance for strong storms will be overnight, with additional rain chances throughout the weekend. Shouldn't be a washout - but Saturday will be the wettest day with rain chances diminishing into Sunday.
Storm chances will increase late this afternoon, initially across the north. Storms will then move south/southeast through the night. Some thunderstorms could be severe, with damaging winds and large hail the main hazards.
We added three cases yesterday. There will be several tomorrow but they came in too late for our data set today.
Good noonday JoCo,
We added 4 cases (2 in Venus, 2 in Johnson County).
Many many weeks back DSHS removed 4 addresses from the list we get from them with no explanation as to why. We asked but did not receive an answer. Out of an abundance of caution, considering it might be a mistake, we left them in our list. It has been over 3 weeks now and those addresses have not been returned to the state list so we are going to remove them now as well (1 Venus, 3 Johnson County).
We understand they are doing the best they can and some mistakes will be made or the data will change with better information.
Good morning, Johnson County. Here is an update to the potential for some storms late tonight/early tomorrow morning. These storms are expected to weaken as they reach I-35W but may include some high winds for some.
A line of storms will move in from the west tonight with a severe weather threat. These storms should weaken in intensity as they reach the I-35 corridor. The main severe weather concern is damaging winds.
Hope y’all are having a great afternoon!
We added 3, released 2 in today’s numbers.
Not too late to get an appointment today! We actually will shut down at 4p today, not the 6p that’s in the flier
Governor just announced this on a conference call I was on. Thought it would be worth posting.
As a result, direction has been issued to @TexasHHSC, @TDEM, & @TexasDSHS to test 100% of residents & staff in nursing homes for #COVID19.
Governor Greg Abbott today directed the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to test 100% of residents and staff in Texas nursing homes. The Governor instructed HHSC, TDEM, and ....
3 new cases from the weekend. Going forward, any death listed as caused by COV19 will also be included as a positive. One has historically not been, for a total of 117 positives today.
The state had mistaken the spelling for one address and posted it in Alvarado but was actually in Keene, so each city has had numbers adjusted to reflect the change, so they’re all in green since they changed.
Added multiple recoveries, up to 82.
As a side note, I went to Walmart, Lowe’s and Home Depot in Cleburne this weekend to grab some things. It’s disappointing to see probably less than 20% of folks wearing a mask. Really, I hope folks will consider it doesn’t matter if they feel sick. You can carry it and not know. I hope folks will consider everyone else.
We are going to move forward and try to have the site. If it were to get too stormy we will shut it down.
We are talking to NWS and it looks likes stormy weather in the 9-10a time frame then stronger and possibly severe storms at 2-6pm. We may end up canceling this and rescheduling because it’s all outside.
Good amorning JoCo! We are hosting another free state testing site, tomorrow! From 10a-4p we will be at the Shepard’s Valley Cowboy Church in Alvarado! Call to schedule your appointment now!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Hope you have a nice, relaxing day.
Home with my sick 10 y/o girl today, but here are our numbers and graphical data we release every Friday.
Good morning JoCo,
We received no new data from the state on Tuesday, but yesterday we received 8 additional cases and 10 releases.
Good afternoon JoCo!
We added 5 cases yesterday/weekend. 3 of those are already listed at released so I’m thinking the test was late getting returned or reported.
Good afternoon JoCo-
Here are our case numbers. We received no info over the weekend so these are from Friday night. An increase of 7 and release of 7.
Reminder, we are doing testing today, no Dr. order required, just an appointment that you can get by calling the number on the flier.
Thank you to our friends at Louis Vuitton in Johnson County for your donation of 2,000 cloth masks which we will be donating to various food pantries feeding those in our community!

Good afternoon JoCo
We added 1 additional case yesterday and 2 were released.
We know people are getting their results from the testing site we did last Saturday, and “at least” 5 positives resulted from there but they have not shared any additional data with us yet.
We added 5 additional cases yesterday, one of which unfortunately was a previously reported passing that just made it on to the official case count. We also had 5 new releases.
We have been told that results from the testing site we did last weekend will start being pushed out in mass today to those that got tested.
State testing is coming back to Johnson County this next Monday, May 4th.
No doctors order is required and the test is free of charge. You do, however, need an appointment.
Please share this so we can get as many people aware of it as possible!
We have received several damage and hail reports across the county. If you have photos of either, please send them to us here via messenger. Additionally, you can email [email protected].
Please include the general location (cross streets or neighborhood), and estimated time of damage if possible.

Good Morning JoCo
We are sad to hear of our 4th CoV related death, located in the City of Burleson. Our sincere condolences to their family.
We added 3 cases last night.
Good morning JoCo!
Not much has changed in the forecast for tonight's severe weather potential. The main threat will be damaging winds, but other modes of severe weather can't be ruled out. This line will come in ahead of a cold front.
It would be a good idea to secure lawn furniture, trampolines, or other things that might easily be damaged/picked up outdoors by high wind.
