In his role as the City's new Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC), Munoz oversees the emergency management program for the nation's fourth-largest city, which includes the coordination of disaster mitigation, planning, response, and recovery.

"The City of Houston cannot prevent disasters like hurricanes, extreme winter weather or major incidents from happening. However, we have a choice when it comes to selecting a strong leader to manage significant events," said Mayor Sylvester Turner. "Thomas Munoz is the right person at the right time to lead our emergency management response team."
