Preparedness
The goal of emergency management is to protect lives and property from the effects of natural and technological disasters and enemy attack. At the federal level, emergency management is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under direction of the President of the United States. At the city level, the Mayor serves as an Emergency Management Director.

Preparing for Emergencies
The Mayor is responsible for developing disaster response capabilities and coordinating an emergency response plan for the jurisdiction. Potential emergencies/disasters include:

The Fire Marshal serves as the part-time Emergency Management Coordinator, assisted by department directors and civilian volunteers. Should disaster strike, local authorities would take control of the situation from the Emergency Operations Center.

Outdoor Warning System
The City of Allen maintains an outdoor warning system capable of voice messaging and siren tones to help warn the public of severe weather or other emergencies.

Emergency Information For Hearing and Sight Impaired Populations 
Northeast Texas Public Health District has created both video and written information on eighteen emergency preparedness topics to serve deaf, blind and limited sight populations. The information is available for public use, free of charge, on the Accessible Emergency Information website.
