FEMA, Region VI provides assistance to the South Central Region of the United States and has its headquarters in Denton. The States in Region VI are Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. They also provide assistance to 66 federally-recognized Tribal Nations.
Their mission is to reduce the loss of life and property and protect institutions from all types of hazards by leading and supporting the Nation in a comprehensive, risk-based all-hazards emergency management program of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. The FEMA staff of 100 full-time employees is located in Denton, Texas. During Presidentially declared disasters, the Region also draws on a cadre of over 500 Disaster Assistance Employees (DAEs) or "reservists."
Additionally, Region VI is one of only five regions that house Mobile Emergency Response detachments.
