We need your help! As part of the POD exercise (see image at left), we are testing a new data management system. 

Hays County OES invites you to help us test our new system for the Medical Screening Household Registration process. This system could save valuable time during an emergency. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to complete the info and it will provide us with useful insight into our processes and protocols.


If you're able to help us with this testing, please use this link.
