The Safety of Our Officers and Our Clients, is Patriot’s main concern during these tough times.  Facial Masks and Hand Sanitizer have been issued to all Officers.  The Facial Mask is now a part of Patriot’s Uniform Requirements and all must be in compliance.  As Texas reopens, Counties are issuing Mandates that require persons to wear a mask in public.  Results for not following the Mandate, include fines and possible jail time.  The Sanitizer issued comes in a refillable bottle that should not be thrown away.  Instead, please call the Patriot Office at (409)727-4944 for refills.  Hand Sanitizer should be on all Officers in addition to the mask.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.

The Emergency Services Sector (ESS) is a community of millions of highly-skilled, trained personnel, along with the physical and cyber resources, that provide a wide range of prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery services during both day-to-day operations and incident response. The ESS includes geographically distributed facilities and equipment in both paid and volunteer capacities organized primarily at the federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial levels of government, such as city police departments and fire stations, county sheriff’s offices, Department of Defense police and fire departments, and town public works departments. The ESS also includes private sector resources, such as industrial fire departments, private security organizations, and private emergency medical services providers.
