Air Quality

Ozone season is here and the CAPCOG Air Quality Program works to keep people informed of the region's air quality with AirCentralTexas.org.

Alert your Residents

WarnCentralTexas.org is a regional notification tool used by local public safety personnel to contact the public during emergencies. It allows those public safety officials to give residents actionable warnings and alerts during disasters. Alert messages are generated and distributed by local public safety personnel and not CAPCOG.

What
we Do

CAPCOG is an advocate, planner and coordinator for important regional issues in the ten-county Capital Area. It works directly with its member local governments to recognize opportunities for cooperation and eliminate unnecessary duplication in emergency communications, elderly assistance, law enforcement training, criminal justice planning, solid waste reduction, homeland security planning, infrastructure development, transportation planning and economic development.

Programs and projects range in variety of areas from providing training for law enforcement to ensuring the validity of 9-1-1 operations, to helping local governments with grant planning to conducting outreach about regional issues.
